Thanks to Yacht Club Argentino and to F18 Argentina, with special mention to Freya Mors and Martin Vanzulli, who worked hard for months to build up our pinacle event, everything is running smooth in order to make a big success of this first ever F18 World Championship sailed in South America, giving a solid boost to all SA fleets.

A strong IJ with no appeal has been put in place, and an experienced RA should provide sailors with good racing the whole week, by the exception of Wednesday where hurricane weather conditions are forecasted.
