Portuguese Nationals – Final
Leca de Palmeira, Portugal, September 13, 2020. Report by Pedro Andrade
Last weekend we held our national championship. After many months without sailing we managed to gather a fleet of 33 boats. To this fleet and to our great joy, several junior crews have come to say that they are present, that we count on it. The third place on the podium was occupied by one of these crews (23 and 22 years old respectively).
The championship was sailed in difficult conditions of light wind. On the second day due to little wind, it was only possible to hold a race. Of the six races planned, it was possible to complete six. The new national champions of Portugal are the crew composed by Pedro Barreto and Sofia Barreto.
Final results after 4 races (1 discard):
- Pedro Barreto & Sofia Barreto, 6
- Miguel Leite & Nuno Coleta, 10
- Guilherme Gomes & Vasco Veras, 14
- Antonio Pereira & Ricardo Shedel, 16
- Luis Pessanha & Alexandre Tinoco, 17
