At Sotheby’s IRC Mallorca , the Alegre TP52 confirmed their final victory in the first round of the day, and opted not to compete in the latter. The team led by Andrés Soriano achieved his third MAPFRE King Cup in three different categories: he was Soto 40 champion in 2012 and IRC 0 in 2013. Five points behind the champion finished second to the Swiss Team Vision Future of Mikael Mergui, followed by The French Paprec Recyclage by Stephane Neve. The TP52 occupied the first seven positions of the final classification in a fleet composed by 16 boats.

He is accompanied on the podium by the Italians Cuordileoneby Leonardo Ferragamo and Ulika de Andrea Masi.

Just one point separated the top two finishers from MRW Swan 45 , the teams who alternated ahead of the provisional all week. The Elena Nova German Christian Plump won the title literally in the last race, To which it arrived with two points of disadvantage on its archrival, the Black one of the Ecuadorian Francisco Rizzo. Elena Nova was taking the last round, and Negra saw how the victory in extremis escaped him noting a painful room. He completed the podium Jan de Kraker’s Dutch K-Force .

In Swan 42 class , the Fish of April knew to defend its leadership to confirm the title. The boat of Jose Maria Meseguer completed both sleeves ahead of its more direct rival and with that disputed the first position during all the week, the Nadir of Pedro Vaquer. A series of 4-3 of the champion by 5-5 of his rival confirmed the Fish of April like champion 2017. Third, to a point of the Nadir , finalized the Red Eléctrica of Spain of Alberto Viejo.
