The Campeonato del Oeste was recently sailed on the gorgeous Andean mountain lake off Potrerillos. The dozen-boat fleet was treated to a wide variety of conditions over the three-day championship.

After eleven races, it was clear the regatta had become a three-horse race between Cambury, Rina, and Morrucho. The final standings were not determined until the last race, with the team of Cambury (Marcelo Freytes, Ricky Homps, Torkel Borgstrom and Ezequiel Despontin) winning by just one point.

Racing was so close amongst the trio of boats that second place was determined by a tie-breaker. Winning that count-back was Buenos Aires sailor Nicolas Cubria's Rina over Sebastian Halpern"s Morrucho. Rounding out the top five were US in fourth and SeaWolf in fifth.

Nico Cubria commented on the sailing: "On Saturday, we sailed for the Martin Pelado Costa Cup, a tribute to past J/24 sailor Sr. Martín. The best boat of the day was Morrucho skippered by Sebastian Halpern. In the afternoon, there was an emotional presentation of prizes that counted on the presence of the wife and children of Martin who, together with Torkel Borgstrom, dedicated warm words and anecdotes remembering Martin.

On Sunday, the wind breeze stayed strong in the 12 to 20 kts range, enabling the PRO to run four more races. The fleet has been very close and we hope for a good outcome tomorrow! But, it will be difficult against our friendly competitors, Cambury and Morrucho. Needless to say, there is great camaraderie amongst the sailors and we look forward to our dinner at the Otaviano Vineyard enjoying some good wines!"
