Spanish sailing championship 2023

14 December 2023 Regattas
Campionat Espanya Vela 2023

Between December 6th and 10th, the Masnou’s water hosted 28 participants in the Spanish Sailing Championship 2023, a competition that determines who has the honor of being part of the national team representing Spain at the upcoming Youth Sailing World Championship and European Youth Sailing Championship next summer.


Adverse Weather Conditions


Inclement weather allowed only two days of competition out of the planned four, with only six of the twelve scheduled races taking place. Nevertheless, the intensity remained constant.

The first day posed a challenge with winds ranging from 8 to 12 knots from the southwest. On the second day, lack of wind prevented the boats from taking to the water. The third day, unstable southwest winds with intensities of 5 to 12 knots provided participants with the opportunity to showcase their skills in variable conditions. Unfortunately, the last day’s conditions did not allow the competition to continue.
