In mid-December, the Club Nautico Olivos just north of Buenos Aires, Argentina, hosted the COPA PIMMS on the Rio de la Plata for the J/24 Class. The weather was not the best as only three races could be held over the two-day event for the nine-boat J/24 fleet. Club Nautico Olivos hosts the Pimms Cup as their traditional closing of the racing season. They provide a relaxed atmosphere after Saturday’s racing. The sailors have a great time, there is lots of camaraderie, music, good food and drink. In a simple ceremony on Sunday, the CNO organizes a nice award ceremony to end the 2017 regatta season. The winner of the 2017 COPA PIMMS was Santiago Doval’s crew on CACIQUE with a record of three bullets for 3 points total. Behind him it was a seesaw battle until the end. Winning the fight was Nicolas Cubria’s RINA ALAGUA with a consistent 4-3-3 tally for 10 points. Only one point back was Andres Guerra’s CARRERA with a 2-5-4 record for 11 points. Rounding out the top five was Rodrigo Benedetto’s HAIK-THOMSON REUTERS with 13 points to take fourth place, and lying in fifth position was Gonzalo Nandin’s NOCTURNO with 17 points.
