After the second day of competition, Samuel Beneyto (RCNGC) does not give up the leadership (RCNGC) followed by Arnau Gelpí (CN El Balís), winner of this competition last year. The third place has been for the Swedish Calle Lagerberg in the only race that could be made today.
The harsh weather conditions have marked this second day of competition in the 31st edition of the AECIO Trophy. The strong wind in the early hours of the morning and the great swell in the bay of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, delayed the beginning of the competition. Finally, thanks to the wind down to 12 knots, at 4:00 p.m., the yellow group started and at 4:10 p.m., the red group. This leg ended with 8 knots of wind.
The best strategies among the sailors were the ones that gave them the best results in the overall results of this Wednesday and the race course was located in front of the area of the courts of the capital of Gran Canaria.
