The Real Club Maritimo Santander in Santander, Spain hosted the 2019 J/80 Mundialito Cup Regatta off their famous setting in front of Spain's Pyrenees on the northeastern shoreline of Spain, located on the Bay of Biscay.

The fleet was treated to good racing when the breeze was over the weekend, but it was not without its challenges for the RCM Santander's PRO!

In the end, it was a past J/80 World Champion- Jose Maria "Pichu" Torcida-Seghers that won the regatta on the fabulous Fredo! Taking second was Alfredo Gonzalez's Edificio and rounding out the podium was Jose Azqueta-Arrue's Biobizz that took the bronze medal.

The balance of the top five in this always hyper-competitive fleet was determined by a tie-breaker at 10 pts each; winning that countback was Rafael Malo's Hatuey in fourth place and Ignacio Camino-Rodriguez's ESP 899 in fifth place.
