Puerto Calero Match Race

Posted on 01 December 2006 by Valencia Sailing

In the beautiful island of Lanzarote, one of Spain’s Canary islands, the second Puerto Calero Match Race is currently taking place. It is a predominantly local race counting towards the Spanish championship and three America’s Cup sailors are participating. They are Jesper Radich of Desafío Español, Iain Percy of +39 Challenge and Marcus Wieser of United Internet Team Germany.

Unfortunately, we have very little information concerning this race. We do know that all races in the second day (Friday 1 December) were cancelled due to lack of winds. Radich is sharing first place with two other Spanish sailors while Percy is fourth, just behind them with the same number of wins but one more race. Finally, Marcus Wieser is tenth with two victories.

The forecast for Saturday calls for stronger winds, up to 8 knots, and the race committee has scheduled racing at 9am in order to carry out as many flights as possible.
