PRO briefs us on racing in the "Rio de la Plata”
The Class Course Representative (PRO), Ricardo Navarro kindly gave us a briefing on the likely sailing conditions at the championships: “Sailing conditions in Buenos Aires this time of the year are excellent for a World Championship. Sunny days, fresh afternoon breeze between 8 -15 knots, a challenging, but not so strong current and, in the evening, a nice sunset to enjoy a barbecue talking about the races with friends. A perfect atmosphere for a 420 Worlds.
“Of course the "Rio de la Plata”, has its secrets, sometimes you can face shifting wind conditions, or a strong current, but, as the sailors have, the Race Committee team did their 'homework' and everything is ready to provide the sailors with good races.
“The challenge to the Race Committee team here will be to set a perfect starting line to compensate for any shifts or current to give a good start to a big and strong fleet, together with a good management of the course length to have 50 minute races.
"At now, everything is prepared, the Club did a great job and now we are only waiting to 'start the game'."
