Today saw the multihull and skiff sailors move out of Santander Bay and into more challenging conditions outside of the bay.
And it was glorious sailing conditions for the multihull, skiffs and kiteboarders with a steady 10 knot breeze and glorious sunshine.
Unfortunately I missed my ride on a RIB today and spent the day on shore allowing time to take in Santander for what it’s worth. And with the sun beating down on the channel and snow-capped mountains in the background it was a professional photographer’s haven. Unfortunately something I am not.
Sailing finished later today due to the fabulous conditions and a reception was held at City Hall with the mayor of Santander, Iñigo de la Serna, who spoke about the ISAF Sailing World Championships which head to northern Spain in 2014.
There are some great plans for the 2014 ISAF Worlds and with the mixed multihulls and women’s skiffs on the menu it’ll no doubt attract the general public.
Just three days remain in the 2016 Equipment Evaluations and tomorrow is set to be a challenging day for the sailors with big winds predicted.
To sign off I leave you with this shot.
