Laser Europa Cup Spain held over the weekend proved a test of patience and skill as tide was strong and winds were light.
More than 200 sailors from 16 nations were present in the penultimate leg of the 2013 series. A total of five races were completed with a discard.
Day one had the best wind, blowing in from the south at about 13 knots. For the next two days a light northerly wind of about 7 knots puffed in and out.
It proved tough for sailors getting around the course, battling not only with each other in the fight for the podium, but also against the tide on the Costa Brava.
The top spots on the overall results varied very little over the three day event proving once again that the best sailors are able to adapt to all conditions.
