I need to adjust the vertical spacing between three tables as defined in the following MWE. \vspace{30pt} only works for between the second and third table. I'm suspecting this has something to do with the minipages defined but I need them for the footers beneath the tables.

Any clues?

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{report}

\begin{document}
\begin{table}[t]
\begin{minipage}{\textwidth} 
\renewcommand{\thefootnote}{\thempfootnote}
\centering
\setlength{\tabcolsep}{12pt}
\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.3}
\begin{tabular}{ l l l }
\hline
    \multicolumn{1}{|c|}{X} & \multicolumn{1}{c|}{Y} & \multicolumn{1}{c|}{Z } \\ \hline
\multicolumn{1}{|c|}{YYYYY.\footnote{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy} + ZZZZZ.} & \multicolumn{1}{c|}{62.9\% (73.2\%)} & \multicolumn{1}{c|}{213} \\
  \multicolumn{1}{|c|}{XXXX + YYYYY.\footnote{Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy}} & \multicolumn{1}{c|}{81.5\% (92.8\%)} & \multicolumn{1}{c|}{638} \\

Always put a blank line in the source before \vspace, otherwise the space gets added after the current line, not at the point that you expect.
