MUSTO SKIFF ESP EUROCUP 2016 Club Náutico El Arenal

Glamorous conditions at the venue for the 2017 Worlds.

Report by Justo Martinez Balaguer

9 Mustos from Mallorca, mainland and Germany arrive to club Nautico Arenalon 16-17 weekend with a spring temperature (25C), sun and sea breeze.

It was clearly going to be a tough battle between Sergio Gonzalez, Justo Martibez and Andi Lachenschimid in a thypical "Embat" conditions (sea breeze from SW)

On Saturday sailors sailed three races in a sunny day with 10-12 knots from SW at the end of the day Sergio become the leader with one point over Justo and two over Andi.

On Sunday still sunny and hot but with 15-18 knots from SW with nice waves that make the day like a dream MUSTO sailing day. in the first assault and Andy and Justo were over the line (OCS) and Sergio had a problem (DNS), so things didn't change after the first race.

Second race wind went up until 18 knots with waves, that so Mustos jump over the waves. Andi and Sergio capsized down wind and Justo pass the finish line first, that makes Justo the new leader but every thing was at stake between Sergio and Justo.

Last race wind go down with 13-14 knots, Sergio take the leader Andy and Justo behind. On leeward mark Sergio still 1st and Justo very close but a mistake make Justo take a swim and that give the eurocup to Sergio.

After races C. N. Arenal invite the sailors a "Paella" in a friendly lunch with the committee.

Thanks to C. N. Arenal that make everything easy, professional committee, photographer and "paella".

See you all next year on the world 2017.
