Palamos Christmas Race
Palamos, Spain

The final morning of the Palamos Christmas Race brought up a gorgeous bright sunshine and blue sky with a south westerly wind from 5-7 knots expected to start blowing around midday.
A South westetly breeze shyly appeared in the bay as forecasted and the 49ers sailed out to complete the Medal Race. French sailors Julie D'Ortolli and Noé Delpech claimed the title in 49er finishing fourth while Spanish team Diego Botin and Yago López climbed to second place with a second place in the Medal Race. A bullet brought Great Britain's James Peters and Ed Fitzgerald to third place overall.

The FX and Women's 470 were the next to start but the wind dropped and the races had to be abandoned in both classes.

The fleets waited afloat and finally the Race Committee decided to cancel the day's racing as there were no signs of wind.
