The race

Exceptionally, on Friday at 5 pm 6 boats of the mini class left from Barcelona that also completed the route of the test.

The balance of the regatta is very positive since all the participants have been able to finish it. It highlights the good weather and the full moon that has facilitated navigation at night.
