The first weekend of November saw the opening of the 1st SB20  Winter Series in Cascais, Portugal.
Two  excellent days of sailing, with a wind breeze of 12 to 15 knots , under the famous Portuguese autumn sun.
Following the 2016 SB20 World Championships back in September, it was a great restart for several of the teams.14991941_1130054690377099_8238894533381724280_n

All teams were welcome ashore with the traditional happy hour social event, with food and drinks offered by the Clube Naval de Cascais.

1st: Dom Pedro Hotels/Generali – José Paulo Ramada; Gonçalo Ribeiro; Miguel Leal de Faria; João Alves.
