Another rather animated day on the water. The forecasted winds the last couple of days have proved to be slightly more moderate than what actually became the case….……..at least on the waters here outside Castelldefels.
Today it meant the wind again increased to about 30 kts. Two races were accomplished before the sailors were sent back to the beach and pasta in the Hobie Village.
The Bader brothers (FRA) consolidated their lead in the HC16 class with a first and a second. The positions 2-5 are a lot more open before entering the final day.
In the Wild Cat class, Julien Feraud/Charles Gate (FRA) consolidated their lead as well, with Gerard Loos/Andy Dinsdale (NED/FRA) in a strong second.
Tomas Testor (ESP) had a great day on in the FX-One class with two firsts. He is now leading the fleet with the same score as previous frontrunner Alfredo Bernad (ESP) setting up the stage for an exciting finish tomorrow.
Acopo Salvemini/Michelle Mediel Bojorg (ESP) took over the lead in the FX-One Double.
We have said it before……… the weather forecast for tomorrow, last day of the championship, looks bit more peaceful. We might be able to tell for sure after the racing! ;-)
