We had a great racing weekend here in Buenos Aires, some boats had to retire on breakages breezy first race Day 1 but we managed to complete 8 races total. Wind range going from +16 to 6 knots, first day shifty and second day decreasing but pretty stable direction, no waves both days.

First day we had a triple tie for the lead with Krevisky-Tigre Benitez, Volker-Menzel and Gonzalez Smith-Heuser winning at least one each.
Sunday it was all first two teams above for the lead, with at least 3 races defined as Match Race.”
