Just as the morning before, the postponement flag fluttered under cloudy skies in anticipation of afternoon wind. For some, on this final competition day, it was a tense wait. The wind gods were kind, providing good conditions for three races, making a total of 13 races in all for the championship.
In the men’s RS:X fleet, Daniel Flores (VEN-1) is the undisputed champion, 9 points clear of second placed Brenno Francioli (BRA-70). The battle for third place was won by Eduardo Herman (CHI-1) who crossed the finish line ahead of Alessio Botteri in all three of today’s races.[more]
Maria Bazo (PER-50) strengthened her first place position in the women’s RS:X with two bullets today, finishing a point clear of Bruna Mello (BRA-49) in second.
In the Raceboard Fleet, Fernando Consorte (ARG-355) was another undisputed champion, a good 14 points clear of Udo Schenker (BRA-172) who takes second place on the podium. Third placed Fernando Olmos (ARG-351) was unable to sustain his challenge dropping back to 5 points behind Udo.
Jim Van Someren (NED-600) has a comfortable Techno 293 championship win, 6 points clear of Geronimo Nores (USA-108) who settles for second. However, neither are eligible to claim the title of 2015 Techno Youth Boys South American Champion which goes to Martin Nores (ARG-407). Brazilian Andre Thome fought a tough battle, beating Martin over the finish line in all of today’s races, but ended the championship two points behind.
First Techno 293 Youth Girl, Larissa Schenker (BRA-774) has had a mixed bag of results but has done well to come 6th overall in the fleet, closely followed by Manuel Nores (USA-737) 1st Junior Boy in 7th overall. 1st Junior Girl is Lucia Llerena (PER-80).
There is no doubt that all the competitors and spectators, both local and foreign, have thoroughly enjoyed the Paracas winds and calm seas in the bay making for excellent and entertaining competition racing. Everyone involved both on shore and on the water are to be congratulated for providing a great championship.
