Teasing winds in Costa Brava

On day four the crew tried to make the best out of the remaining winds from the Tramontana the day before.  Only one heat could be run before the wind disappear and the stormy weather arrived. This lonely heat was won by Sylvain Moussilmani followed by Florent Renard in second and Antoine Questel in third.
Day five saw a mass of spectators arriving to the beach, but despite the good weather in the afternoon, it didn\’t warmed up enough to make the thermal winds blow strong enough to run an official competition. However, the crowds could see their heroes in a fun race, where  Antoine demonstrated to the public why is he the World Champ. He got the first place in this fun race, followed by Gonzalo Costa and Cedric Bordes.
So the general result stays as it was on the third day. With light winds at the moment it could well be the final result, but you never know in Costa Brava. Its not over until the fat lady sings.
