The penultimate event of SB20 Cascais Winter Series saw the fleet increasing with 2 more teams and even more nationalities present. SailCascais as the official SB20 Portugal partner and boat rental provider followed the action and released a video about the 4th SB20 Winter Series:
Dragon sailors, Olympic sailors, people from North and South of Portugal, from Ukraine, Russia, Bulgaria, Switzerland and Sweden – SB20 in Cascais connects them all!
The light and shifty winds of the weekend tested the nerves of many of the experienced sailors of the local fleet and made it a tough and competitive regatta. 3rd to 7th overall were 5 points apart in the end. In the end it was the team of Dom Pedro Hotels/Generali who took the top honours. After 5 races sailed, 2 in the first and 3 in the second day, the local team of José Paulo Ramada sailed a very consistent 2nd and last day in very tricky conditions with a 5, 2 and 5 that together with a win on the first race of the championship allowed them to finish at the top.
A win in the last race together with a brilliant first day gave Sea Camel of Jose Camelo the second place overall. Two first places on the last day allowed Animal/Mobiag to climb a few places and break the tie for third in their favour against Carl Linné of John Harald Orneberg from Sweden, a newcomer to the class that sailed very solid on both days.
In addition to the new-coming, but experienced sailors of the Class, a great performance for the young team on Quebramar boat. The team – composed of Laser, Moth and 49er sailors – has extensive knowledge of the area as they spend more time on these waters than probably some of the older participants. The boys were very excited with their result – 6th overall with two 3rd finishes on day 2! Hopefully they are back for the next regatta.
Cascais is always fun and a great spirit is here! 30 boats on the starting line is now normal. The SB20 Portugal is not stopping and we can’t wait for the next regatta in the end of March.
