V Bay of Cadiz Carnival Race

The wind was noted for its absence during the second day, yesterday, which meant there was no racing for some classes despite the effort made by the participants and organisers
The local sailors dominated the racing in the first race of the Spanish Cup for the Mistral Junior Class

Rogelio VILLANUEVA (ESP) from Almeria and Carlos ACEÑA and Gabriel UTRERA from Malaga, are leading the scoreboards in the Laser Standard and 420, respectively.

No changes to the results for the 49er and Mistral Men and Women, while the Laser Radial did not manage to get the first race in.

Racing was scheduled to start for the Laser Standard, Laser Radial, 420 and Mistral Junior classes today, but unfortunately, the westerly wind did not kick in as expected, which led to postponements on the beach, fewer races than planned, shortening of courses and racing for some classes being cancelled. The strong current today in the Bay of Cadiz also 'helped' to complicate matters and tested the patience of the sailors and race committees alike. The day ended with two races completed for the Mistral Juniors, one for the Laser Standard and 420 classes, thanks to a shortening of the course that had been initially set. Even though the starting signal was given for the 49er and Laser Radial classes, both races were cancelled as no boat reached the first mark within the time limit. The Mistral Men and Women relaxed as they hung around on the beach enjoying the strong Spring sun and waiting to see if the wind would finally kick in.

The weather forecast for Sunday and Monday is for the wind to be from the north-east and to be up to 20 knots in strength.
