The first installment of the 54th Nautical Week reaches its final stretch, after closing today the second day that has once again had that strong Poniente wind that has reached points of 30 knots of intensity, greatly conditioned the committee’s program. Despite this, it has been possible to close three tests for the Open Foil and one for all the categories of the ILCA, while the Bic Techno and Raceboard have remained on the ground, which is why the majority of the classes are defined as podium seats.
Boronat and Aranzueque play the title in Open Foil
The Open Foils were the first to go out on the water and the only ones who closed the day with three tests. José Luis Boronat (CN Jávea), with partials of 1-2-1, remains the leader with 6 points after being discarded. With a difference of 2, Jorge Aranzueque (CN Santa Pola) is located, signing numbers today of 2-1-2, while Javier Clement (CN Santa Pola) moves away from the positions, adds 16 points after finishing today with three third places .
Much to decide at the BIC Techno
The Bic Techno have been ground today as a result of that strong wind. This class has only one completed test, the only one that could be held on the opening day.
Therefore, the third and last day of the Nautical Week that will be held tomorrow, Monday, December 7, will be key to knowing the podium places.
With that single test completed in Carlos Sánchez (CN Santa Pola) he commands in the BIC Techno Plus, while Carlos Mari (CN Jávea) and Andrea Sira Martínez (RCN Valencia) do the same in the SUB17 and SUB 15 respectively.
