Hobie 16 South Americans 2014: Day 1 , Noriega-Dutton lead
Great Hobecat Poster Images from Pernambuco by Marcos Mendez / Sail Station / Assoc Brasileira de Hobiecat. -- First day of the 2014 South Americans being held a Maria Farinha, Pernambuco, Brasil.
As reported in previous post, 4 countries are looking their slots for the 2015 Panams in Toronto:
Brasil, Mexico, Venezuela & Argentina.
After 3 races two of the favorites are holding 1 & 3rd. My good friend Armando Noriega Jr (I learned/started sailing Cats with his father/family at Valle de Bravo , Mex in 2002) & Andrea Dutton are leading, followed by BRA Montenegro-Crispim and 3rd place for Yamil Saba-Gonzalo Cendra.
Two more days pending to define who is going to Toronto Panams 2015, and our Arg rookie crew will have a hard time getting in front some of the best Hobie 16 sailors in the planet like the Brasilians plus Noriega & Saba.
Update: Pablo reports they scored 3,2,3 but ocs on the second one. If not they would be leading, excellent work though by Pablo and Sofia with counting hours on the Hobie 16.
9 races and 2 discard scheduled
No results table available.
