Final results in Mar del Plata ARG - 2022 Semana Internacional del Yachting
The Argentine 420 class spectacularly closed the 57th Semana Internacional del Yachting de Mar del Plata, which is jointly organized by Club Náutico Mar del Plata and Yacht Club Argentino.
With short regattas lasting just 20 minutes, refereed by judges, with double and non-discardable points, the 7 best classified teams disputed the Medal Race inside the port and very close to the public, who were able to witness the races from water or land. It is the only national sailing championship that is defined with this modality, which is precisely the one that is applied in the Olympic Games.
The races were exciting, with many situations that generated penalties, but in the end the experienced Alfredo Agote / Martin Barletta were the ones who were crowned champions, despite finishing second in the Medal.
This event also served for the class to define their representatives on the next 2022 Youth Sailing World championships in Netherlands. Teams selected were Facundo Guglianone / Facundo Hernandez from the YCA and Juana Lago / Mercedes Caranti from the CNSI.
Prize giving was held at the club as soon as the competitors arrived to the ramp, with a podium and a full of fun.
