· The penultimate day of tests that was going to be held this afternoon in Baiona was finally suspended due to poor conditions for navigation
· A wind that did not want to stabilize and disappeared at times led to the suspension of the three tests that tried to be held without success
The winners’ podium, provisionally held by Okofen, Cansino and Namasté, will be decided on the last day scheduled for April 6
A wind that did not want to stabilize and disappeared at times forced to suspend, this afternoon in Baiona, the penultimate day of the J80 Winter League organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates.
Difficulties in defining the regatta field, a general call, route changes, a test suspended as soon as it started and another when it was halfway through were some of the situations that were experienced this afternoon in the bay of Baiona.
It was, without a doubt, a very complicated day for navigation, in which the ideal conditions for holding the competition were never achieved. Thus, and after several unsuccessful hours on the water, the regatta committee decided to suspend the day.
With this situation, the J80 Winter League will reach its last stage with everything still to be decided. Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen is currently the favorite to win the title. After winning the previous day, he took 7 points from Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino and Luis de Mira’s Namasté, who are tied for second and third position.
Despite everything, and with three races to be held, it is not yet possible to speak of a clear winner of the one-design championship, which will be decided, if the wind allows it, on April 6. For that day, in addition to the final dispute in the water, the award ceremony for the winners of the J80 Winter League is planned.
