The 22nd edition of Cascais Vela took place from August 26th to 29th, already traditional in Cascais on the last weekend of August.

In addition to the colossal sports program, the championship also had a strong social component: "happy hours" and the mythical "Bye Bye Summer" party, which brought together around 2,000 people at Clube Naval de Cascais.

The approximately 220 sailors, distributed among the four classes - SB20, Finn, ORC and NHC - had three days of excellent conditions for practising the sport, as usual in Cascais.

During the race, the competitors were able to compete with all kinds of conditions, from light wind to strong wind, as well as from all directions.

In SB20, Desafio Mitsubishi, 9 races were held, the winner being BTeam, Stanislav Gordienko with Artem Basalkin and Ilava Pavlov, who was unstoppable today and won the three races of the last day.

In the Finns, Frederico Pinheiro de Melo, Olympic sailor, won 7 of the 8 races held, thus rising to the highest place on the podium.

In the NHC, Desafio Marina de Cascais, the winner was the Carapau boat, captained by Bernardo Dias Pinheiro, which won the two coastal regattas disputed.

The ORC were divided into classes "A" and "B" and competed in four "technical" regattas - windward/leeward - and one coastal race, which awarded the Pedro Mendonça Trophy.

In ORC A, Panther - Syone, commanded by Nuno Neves, who had been leading the race every day, won the Cascais Vela for the 5th time.

In the ORC B, Eagle I, by António Domingues, won last day's two regattas, thus winning his category.
