After four races competed today, the distance between 'E para comer Lugo' helmed by the Spanish Champion Gonzalo Arujo and 'EUZ II Monella Vagabonda' helmed by the defending World Champion Sandro Montefusco, is getting smaller and smaller, and the Portoguese 'Credite EGS' is gaining positions.

The rest of the fleet seems to have their eyes on the bronze of the Platú 25 World Championship that is being held in Portosín, with Gonzalo Araújo and Sandro Montefusco,' engaged in an exciting head to head for closing the gap between them to just one point.

The day started at 12.35 hours, with a wind of 200, and with 12 knots of intensity. In the first race of the day Araújo didn’t get a good result. However, thanks to the option of discarding the worst result, he was able to get rid of his seventh place in this first regatta, keeping a good margin over the sailboat of Montefusco, that won this first race of the day. The second was the 'Bribón – Movistar', of Marc de Antonio, with a strong recovery after breaking several of their rigging, and third the 'Credite EGS' the Portuguese Afonso Domingos, with the tactics of Hugo Rocha.

The second race of the day started at 13:45, just over an hour later, with the same intensity, but with 10 degrees wind to the left, towards the 190. This time, the 'Credite EGS' of Domingos, was the winner ahead of the 'Bribón - Movistar', that repeated podium in the same position, finishing third 'Euz II Monella Vagabonda', of Montefusco. And 'E para comer Lugo' was fourth, keeping the head of the podium.
