Blank day due to lack of wind in Sanxenxo

One of lime and one of sand, as they say. After yesterday's spectacular sailing conditions, the second day of the third phase of the 6M Spanish Cup was presented this morning with a weather report in which the instability of the wind, both in direction and intensity, predicted that it would be a difficult day to haggle. In the estuary, the visit of the Sea Cloud Spirit stood out, a giant of the sea of ​​137 meters in length built in the Galician Metalships shipyard.

The Regatta Committee went out on the water at around 11:30 am and found what the report foresaw: wind constantly changing direction and rising and falling in intensity.

With these conditions, it is very difficult to establish a regatta field, since the beacons that mark the course are located depending on the direction of the wind.

"We have had winds from the South, the West, the North, the East... even peaks of 20 knots that the following three minutes were only one knot", explained Jano Martín, the Committee's main officer, after canceling the day. “After several hours, around 4:30 p.m., we decided to try it with a west wind that came with a shower, but just at the time of departure the wind dropped drastically and shifted more than 40 degrees, with which the trip was suspended. today".

Around 5:00 p.m., the 24 boats competing in this third round of the 6 Meter Spanish Cup returned to the port of Nauta Sanxenxo.

Tomorrow, last day

On the last day of competition for the Viajes InterRías Trophy, with the regulations in hand and if conditions permit, up to three tests could be held starting at 1:00 p.m. The time limit for departure is 3:30 p.m., which means that after that time the Race Committee will not be able to start any race.

At the moment, the weather forecast indicates that it will rain until late afternoon.
