The first major event of the med season, Palma Vela will take place next week. In 2018 this will be a particularly exciting regatta as several brand new TP52s will be racing there for the first time. On our side we’ll be involved more than ever with six teams working with knd to support their performance development process. Long evening in sights for all the knd ‘curveriders’ engineers… We have already had a first taste of the 2018 Botin Partners design as Alegre and Sled have been practicing last week in Valencia (very light airs).

The other fleet of major interest for knd is the Wally Class as the Wally Cento Tango, after a promising first event in St Tropez last year will start her first full season of racing after a few modifications to take into account the evolution of the fleet and what was learnt on the first event.

Two of us will be present in Palma with Alegre and Tango while four additional engineers will work from Valencia on PalmaVela competitors data.
