This past weekend the fifth and final event of the Barcelona J/70 Winter Series 2022-23 took place, hosted by the Real Club Náutico de Barcelona.

With more than twenty entries and six nations represented, the sailors enjoyed forty-two races throughout the series in a wide variety of sailing conditions ranging from light and chilly to windy, wavy, and summer-like temps!

The last weekend of February was cold in Barcelona, but it did not impede the teams to take part in the hotly contested regatta. On Friday four races were sailed, and on Sunday two more, while on Saturday the fleet stayed in port due to no wind and an AP over A cancellation for the day.

In the end, Pablo Garriga's TENAZ won the series with Rayco Tabares on tactics, Rubén Castells on trim, and Luis Arrarte "Bam-Bam" on the bow. The Garriga team managed to increase their points difference with very good races throughout the championship.

Luis Martin Cabiedes' NOTICIA managed to maintain its second-place position going into the final event. His crew consisted of Alberto Padrón on the tactics and jib trim, Pablo Santurde on the main, Jon Larrazabal on the spinnaker, and María Monràs on the bow.

While CLINICAS W closed the distance on points to the series leaders by winning the final event, it was not enough to break through onto the silver or gold step. As a result, the bronze medal-winning crew of CLINICAS W consisted of Guti del Castillo on the helm (replaced later by Javier Padrón), Nano Negrín on the tactics, Adolfo López on the bow, Ricardo Terrades on trim, and María Bertrand as bow alternate.
