The first leg of the race was run windward-leeward before heading down the coast to Cullera, led by Lexus and Russell COUTTS and followed by the Atalantis and the Orlanda. After passing the first windward buoy, Vasco Vascotto unfurled all their artillery and decided to leave the course taken by the rest of the fleet and sail on their own. They were also the only ones to raise an asymmetrical spinnaker. This allowed the boat from Chile to sail faster than its competitors, resulting in a spectacular comeback, going from sixth place to third on the second pass.
When the fleet reached the buoy at Cullera, the order had changed again. This time the Bribon was the highlight, going from fourth at the start of the race to second upon arrival at the halfway mark. Meanwhile, the Orlanda, which had started third fell back to the second to last place.
The last leg of the race was run with and average windspeed of 10 knots, confirming an excellent race run by Leche Pascual. The Bribón and the Atalantis also ran excellent races. A surprising race end for the Lexus which had started out in first but finished in seventh place.
