Glorious Conditions As Sailors Vacate The Bay

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.

About ISAF

There are two principal meetings held by the International Sailing Federation every year: the ISAF Annual Conference held in November and the ISAF Mid-Year Meeting held in May. In addition, the ISAF Executive Committee meet four times a year; during the Conference and Mid-Year Meeting and on two other occassions. ISAF Annual Conference Every November, the ISAF Annual Conference brings together the leading figures from the sailing world to discuss, debate and decide upon the key issues in the sport of sailing. The ISAF Committees, Sub-committees and Commissions all have the opportunity to debate all the issues in their respective areas. Based on these discussions they will then make recommendations to the ISAF Council, which is the final decision making body of ISAF. The Conference concludes with three days of Council meetings, when the major decisions which affect sailing's future will be made. ISAF Mid-Year Meeting Held annually every May, the ISAF Mid-Year Meetings bring together the ISAF Council, ISAF Executive Committee and ISAF Events Committee. The key focus of the Council meeting is to consider financial issues and follow up on matters deferred from the Annual Conference.
