Poret & Chevet lead the first race at Blanes
After a day of waiting for wind and racing today in light winds, the Grand Prix Vila de Blanes finally got underway this morning. No doubt spurred on by the progress of Maelenn Lemaitre & Aloise Retornaz in Buenos Aiores (they could certainly do with some of that wind from the Rio de la Plata!), Jennifer Poret & Louise Chevet (FRA) took the first race. We wish them fair winds for the rest of the event.
We are spoilt for choice what to watch! This may help:
