At the Test event-Cuidadde Santander Trophy, the North winds are still insisting on being the main dominator of the event, quite unusual even mentioned by the local sailors.

On the fifth day, the race committee had to postpone in port for all classes until the wind conditions were clear. At around 13:00h the flag came down for the boards and a few minutes later for the 49er.

As soon as the wind builds up to six knots of wind speed, the Laser and 470 made their appearance in the bay of Santander. It wasn’t until at around 15:00 h that the Finn class started and mid afternoon it was the Nacra 17 turn for the Foxtrot racing area, the nearest to the Doc of Gamazo, from witch was a clear view and sight of the race.

Benjamin Bildstein (AUT) - 49er: 'For us the plan is to get some more information the water and the wind here. We want to be prepared for next year and taking an Olympic ticket. The wind is good, sailing is really nice and we will look forward to a good event next year.

'Next year we will aim for the Olympic ticket and who goes from Austria will be decided really close to the Olympic Games if both or more teams are at the same level. It will take quite long to decide which boat will go from Austria.

'For us it’s been a big surprise that the 49er has been sailing offshore so we have big waves, big swell which are not typical conditions for the 49er because it is quite tricky and hard to handle. We know now we need to prepare for next year and know how it is with the tide and current because every day is different. We will train one more time here before Santander 2014.'

Tanja Frank (AUT) - Nacra 17: 'It’s a nice port but a difficult place to sail but it’s very nice and we have been learning a lot,'

'It was quite difficult to learn how to sail the multihull but it’s a very nice boat, very fast and big Click here for Satander 2014
