2016/2017 Winter Series Launched 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.
In this 1st series, a fleet of 14 boats raced inside the Cascais bay area, providing a fantastic show and challenging races , because of tricky winds. The northerly wind trapped inside the bay generated several wind shifts, and teams had to focus on reading the sea and updating the race strategy and tactics accordingly.
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.
2nd: Animal/Mobiag – Vasco Serpa; Paulo Manso; Ruben Luis.
3rd: Sea Camel – João Villas-Boas; José Camelo; Manuel Macedo; Francisco Pinheiro Melo
