Team ENGIE are heading for the Balearic Islands

For the second year running, the foiling catamarans on the GC32 Racing Tour are heading for Majorca in the Balearic Islands for the 36th edition of the prestigious Copa del Rey. Team ENGIE are more motivated than ever after their slight underperformance in Villasimius in Sardinia, and are ready to fight it out on the start line. From Wednesday 2nd to Saturday 5th August, all eyes will be on Palma and a new competitor on the circuit, the Australian team .film Racing, skippered by Simon Delzoppo. In addition, Sébastien Rogues will now be able to count on the technology support of SAP, who are joining the team for the end of the season. Fasten your seat belts, the event promises spectacular racing!
