Cascais 49er & 49erFx Championship ACT II - Overall

by Clube Naval de Cascais 11 Jun 22:31 PDT 7-12 June 2021

After leading the championship from day one, Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey from GBR bid farewell to Cascais from the highest place on the podium.

Dobson and Tidey, after a less successful first race of the final day, regained their form with a second place and a bullet in the last two fleet races. The British also took this momentum to win the Medal Race, ending the championship on a high. Tamara Echegoyen and Paula Barceló maintained the second position they had occupied since the beginning of the event. The Norwegian pair of Helene Naess and Marie Ronningen closed out the podium.

Cascais said goodbye to the Olympic 49erFX fleet in style with three fleet races and a Medal Race completed. The first race, which was completed on the Guia Race area, with stronger wind conditions, at around 18 knots and with waves of about one meter and a half. The second and third races of the day, in Cascais Bay, had more moderate winds around 15 knots and with some shifts. It was also within Cascais Bay that the ten best competitors took part in the medal race.

In total, five continents were represented - North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Oceania - with a total of 19 nationalities sailing in Cascais. Twelve races were completed plus a Medal Race that counted double for the final overall result. This was the last event before summer Olympics in Tokyo this summer.

This championship was supported by Turismo de Portugal, Visit Cascais, Cascais Municiplaity, Portuguese Sailing Federation, Cascais Marina and Vista Alegre. We also have the institutional support of the non-governmental association Sailors For The Sea - Portugal. This NGO audited this event and gave a gold certificate for the sustainability measures that Clube Naval de Cascais held during the last week.
