During two spectacular days of sailing, 20 J/24 teams from across Argentina sailed nine races for the Campeonato del Oeste (the Western Championship). After warming-up on the first day with all top five finishes, Miguel Pereira’s team on CARRERA (Delgado, Gerra & Scarpatti) managed to close the last four races with straight bullets to win the regatta in convincing fashion. The balance of the podium saw a closely-fought three-way battle between CACIQUE, MORRUCHO and RINA. In the end, it was Ezekiel Despontin’s CACIQUE that took the silver with crew of Novillo, Borgstrom & Homps. Third, just two points back, was Sebastien Halpern’s MORRUCHO with crew of S. Despontin, Miralles & P. Despontin. Rounding out the top five was Nicolas Cubria’s RINA in fourth and Tomas Agusti’s CAMBURY in fifth place.
