Canarian Sailing Federation | SAILING CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: “Real Club Náutico de Arrecife-Grupo Martínez” drops to sixth position

The third day of the Sailing Champions League, which has been held since Thursday in the waters of the Costa Smeralda, has not been good for the “RCN Arrecife-Grupo Martínez-Lumar Canarias”. He started the day as leader, but in the last flights he was not as fine as at the beginning, dropping to sixth position, 4 points from fourth with seven flights remaining. The maximum equality between the fleets causes constant changes in the classification.

The Lanzarote boat started the day very strong with two first places, but from the second part of the day it was 5-7-2-6. The seventh place was the result of two penalties and the sixth one, so that with races that barely last 20 minutes, recovery is practically impossible. It continues with the options intact in the absence of flight 12 finishing on Sunday and that the first four have not yet played provisionally, so once the classification is over it will change again, since only four points separate the Spanish team from fourth place, which would give him the pass to the great “final four”, reserved for the 4 highest ranked boats in the previous rounds.

The Italian club “Aeronautica Militare” leads the general, followed by the Swiss “Regatta Club Oberhofen” and the German “Segel-un Motorboot Club Ürbelingen”. Fourth is the Swiss the “Sglervereinigung Kreuzlingen”.

Ricardo Terrades said at the end of the day that “We started very well but then we have made a series of mistakes that with fleets of such a high level pay off expensive, there is still a lot of regatta left and we will fight until the last meter to be in the final ”. Once all the teams have completed the eleventh flight, the intention of the organization is to carry out the rest until the 18th and from there four flights of finals among the first four classified.
