The Brazilian crew formed by Bruna Patricio and Juliana Duque are the new Snipe Women's World Champions. And they did it in style by winning the last race and further distancing themselves from the runners-up, the Lithuanian Gintare Scheidt and Maj Hansen Borgen.

The Spanish crew made up of Martina and Patricia Reino has managed to climb to the third place on the podium after finishing second in the last race.

This World Cup Championship was held for the first time in Valencian waters. In the test, which was co-organized by Valencia Mar and T10 Sailing Club, a total of 43 boats of nationalities from all over the world competed. Athletes from Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, the United States, Chile, Finland, Japan, France, Great Britain, Lithuania, Portugal and Spain have fought in Valencia to win the world title.

The Snipe is a light sailing boat for two crew members and stands out for its navigability and handling in light winds, suitable for all ages and is an eminently tactical class.

The snipe was designed in 1931, and today it is one of the most popular dinghy sailing boats in existence and has become the backbone of competitive sailing. The first World Championship was held in 1946, and the first Women's World Championship in 1994 in Yokohama, Japan.

Valencia Mar, the city's private marina, is located a few meters from the beach and just 10 minutes from the center of Valencia. It is currently fully occupied at its moorings and has a waiting list of more than 100 boats.

Among its services, the marina also has covered parking, electricity up to 1000 amps, Wifi, cable Internet, waste collection, sailors seven days a week, laundry, artificial beach, bars and shops, which have turned it into a fashion space available to the city of Valencia.
