Gonzales Jorge, Hector
Ley Torres, Laiyin
The proud Spaniards are wearing the crown of the J/80 class. At the end of the World Championship with 50 teams of 8 nationalities off Kiel the two Iberian top teams staged a dramatic final, in which the crew of “Princesa Yaiza“ around Skipper and owner Rayco Babares Alvarez brushed past their countrymen. Marc de Antonio, skipper of the beaten “Bribon Movistar” was thoroughly disappointed – he had led the races from the very first day onward. The 3rd place was secured the French “Co-Pilotes” (Maxime Mesnil) against the strongly emerging team from Bremen of the “Procedes Diva” around Björn Beilken.
We had mediterranean weather condition, rain, strong and light wind – had seen exciting and thrilling races and a wonderful time in Kiel-Schilksee. We say thank you and goodbye to all the sailors and supporters!
