Cascais 49er & 49erFx Championship - Day 3

by Clube Naval de Cascais 6 May 13:03 PDT 4-9 May 2021

On the third day of the 2021 Cascais 49er & 49er Fx Championship, the two Olympic class 49er fleets returned to the Guia race area to fulfil, once again, the scheduled races of the day.

Today was the time for the men to start first in Cascais. Since the wind, at the schedule time of the first warning signal, still showed some instability, the Race Committee was forced to delay the first race since they had to move around to find a better place for the demanding Olympic fleet. The men's fleet completed the trio of scheduled races, with the wind blowing from the northwest, building up during the morning from 14 to 18 knots.

After 9 races, the podium in the men's fleet is beginning to take shape, but as we know, anything can happen. The US east coast team of Ian Barrows and Hans Henken remains in the lead but with the first race of the day less successful, their compatriots Nevin Snow and Dane Wilson joined them at the top. Snow and Wilson today practically reached perfection with a third in the first race of the day and two bullets in the following races. With these results the American teams, who are tied with eighteen points each, are playing out a real duel in Cascais. The Brazilian team of Marco Grael and Gabriel Borges fell today to third place.

In the 49er FX class, the ladies went after the men. The fleet of 28 boats completed the day's program. Today, with the most demanding wind conditions from the northwest and blowing in the twenties, there were significant changes in the podium. The Galician team, composed by Tamara Echegoyen and Paula Barcelo, took Spain to the top of the podium at the end of the day. In second place we have new faces on the podium with the rise of the Bavarian team composed of Tina Lutz and Susann Beucke. Closing the women's podium is the Danish team made up of Ida Nielsen and Marie Olsen.

In total we have four continents represented, America, Europe, Asia and Oceania, with a total of 19 nationalities sailing in the bay of Cascais.

This championship has the support of Turismo de Portugal, Visit Cascais, Cascais Town Hall, Portuguese Sailing Federation, Cascais Marina and Vista Alegre. We also have the institutional support of the non-governmental association Sailors For The Sea - Portugal.
