Palma de Mallorca, 09/04/2009.- “I have not seen big changes with respect to the last edition of the Sofía Mapfre”. With these words, Vogl comments on the level of the regatta and the fact that it is not tougher for having been included in the ISAF Sailing World Cup. According to the Austrian sailor “there has not been much difference over the last ten years” because the Sofía Mapfre has always been a top level event. When talking about her rivals, Vogl was very clear: “The strongest competitors are the French teams”. And she is not wrong. French sailor Ingrid Petitjean, Spanish competitor Tara Pacheco and Vogl herself are among the top 3, fighting everyday to lead the 470 women standings. The Austrian sailor also pointed out that, “the level of the fleet is a little bit lower” than in previous editions especially because it is a post-Olympic year. In any case, Vogl was glad to see “so many young, new teams” in the class. “There are some talented new teams”, added Vogl at the same time that she pointed out that it would be “interesting” to see their performance throughout the regatta.
