The Flying Fifteen 2021 Spanish Balearic Championship took place in February at Puerto Pollença, Mallorca.
Vincent and Patrick Harris returned to successfully defend their title, holding off a strong challenge from John Walker and Stephen Babbage, with the third podium place going to Rafa Benítez and Pilar Casares.
Despite nobody being able to attend from overseas, there was a good turnout including two new local teams in Flying Uschi of Paco Terras and Enric Oro, and Fiscardo of Victor Rosselló and Juan Buade.
The fleet continues to expand, and more and more Spanish and Mallorcan sailors are discovering the thrills of Flying Fifteen sailing.
