Racing underway at Trofeo Princesa Sofía:
Palma, Spain (March 27, 2017) – The opening day of the Trofeo Princesa Sofía Iberostar, for what is effectively the start of the new four year Olympic cycle of European regattas, brings a unique excitement for many of the 833 sailors.
For the seasoned campaigners who made it to Rio, and for those who didn’t, being back in their boat, fully engaged in the white heat of competition, racing on the renowned Bay of Palma is the perfect reminder of the enduring appeal of Olympic class racing.

Chair-side Table With Drawer and Magazine Rack Good decorating, especially when space is limited, requires well-thought out pieces of furniture. The idea of multi-tasking is not a new one. Furnishings in our homes have been handling that sort of thing for centuries. Still, the smaller and more compact our homes have become, the more needful we find these pieces that can do several jobs simultaneously and do them all with great style. One of the best pieces for a small living room or den is the chair-side table with drawer and magazine rack. This piece is a one-man band of furniture function! You get the table you want beside your chair, and it will no doubt hold a nice lamp and a coaster for your cup of tea while you read. You also get a drawer for storing your reading glasses, a few odds and ends and beside that, a magazine rack suspended from the side of the same table to house the latest issues of all of your favorite publications. Now, if the table could just provide you with a swing out foot prop, you’d be set. Still, with all it does, you don’t really need anything more than a chair, a lamp and a bit of free time to peruse the pages of your handily stored periodicals. While it might seem a bit far-fetched to imagine a chair-side table with a drawer and magazine rack could actually provide decorative value along with performing all of its functions, it does. These fun tables come in lots of great finishes and the styles range from colonial to contemporary. I’ve even seen one that provides you with a built in lamp to read by! Make no mistake. This is one hard working table with lots of great features and a must for a small reading room.
