The 54th Nautical Week of Alicante, which today has raised the curtain at the La Cantera headquarters and will conclude this coming Monday 7, already has its first leaders in the ILCA, Open Foil and Bic Techno classes, while in Raceboard the day has left blank.
A premiere marked by the strong Poniente wind that has ‘danced’ between 15-20 knots of intensity, reaching points of 28 knots and by the security measures to be able to comply with all the Covid 19 protocols established by the various public bodies , federations and the Club itself, which have worked perfectly, maintaining groups made up of clubs in the area set up in La Cantera, headquarters of the RCR Alicante Sailing School.
Suárez, Cebrián and Ravie rule in the ILCA
The ILCAs have completed two tests in the three categories. In the ILCA 7 (Laser Standard), Gonzalo Suárez (CN Altea) had no rival with two first places. The second place was much more even, concluding the day with a double tie at 5 points between Antonio Carrillo (CN Altea) and Leonardo Collado (RCN Calpe). The first with partials of 3-2 and the second with 2-3.
More even have been the ILCA 6 (Laser Radial) and also with a double tie in the second provisional place. Mariano Cebrián (CN Benidorm) leads with 5 points (1-4) followed by Tadeo Samorodny (RCR Alicante) with partial 4-2 and Marcos Altarriba (RCN Valencia) who has added two third places.
Joan Ravie (CN Campello) has been strong in ILCA 4 (Laser 4.7) with two partial wins. Raúl Santiago (CN Altea) with 5 points (3-2) and Pablo Bellver (RCN Valencia) with 8 points (5-3), 6 behind the provisional leader, were behind.

Aranzueque, for his part, started well with a partial victory, then he signed two second places. The difference between them is only 1 points. Third place is occupied by Alex Ortega (CN Jávea), who is 6 points behind the leader and 5 points behind the second. Ortega closes the day with numbers 3-4-3.
Sánchez, Mari and Martínez, first in the Bic Techno 293

Tomorrow the second day will be disputed, with wind forecasts that will be very similar to those of today, with a Poniente (Southwest-SW) pointing again at 15-20 knots of intensity.
