The Puerto Portals Dragon Winter Series will resume its activity tomorrow to contest the second of the three events of which the competition consists. The test will bring together 35 ships of the Dragon class from January 17 to 19, most with crews arriving from northern Europe.
The regatta is organized by the Puerto Portals Regatta Club in collaboration with the Spanish Association of the Dragon class, the International Dragon Class and the Balearic Sailing Federation. The first departure will take place at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, while on Saturday and Sunday the tests will begin at 11:30 a.m.
The organization has programmed a maximum of six sleeves, two per day and, from the fifth, the discard will come into play. Participants will have a village, located in the S’Esponja restaurant, while the regatta office will be installed in the Puerto Portals Sailing School.
The weather for tomorrow is favorable, with westward winds of about 14 knots on average, but not as positive for the next two days, because on Saturday the intensity of “Eolo” will be weaker and on Sunday strong expectations are expected rains that could put at risk the dispute of the two tests planned.
With five sleeves played so far, the Russian ship Rocknrolla, manned by Dmitry Samokhin, Kasper Harsberg and Andrdey Kirilyuk, remains the leader of the III Puerto Portals Winter Series. The British Louise Racing by Grant Gordon is second and the Danish Out Of Bounce by owner Jens Christensen completes the provisional podium.
The third edition of the Puerto Portals Dragon Winter Series will end next February with the dispute of the third and final event, which will culminate with the awarding of trophies to the winner, as well as the best of the Best Classic categories (for wooden boats) and Best Corinthian (non-professional crews). .
