FD SPANISH CUP 2023 5 (1)

From Friday, May 5 to Sunday, May 7, the Spanish Cup of Flying Dutchman was celebrated in Altea. With fewer boats than normally, a total of 6 were ready to race some sleeves that were fun but very demanding.

The first day the wind was low with an intensity of about 6-7 knots that were a challenge for the sailors. It was the pair formed by Jose Sánchez and Carlos Gastaldi (ESP90) who took the lead at the end of the day after making two first places and a third. The ESP66 of the Enriques Egea also curdled a great performance with two second places and a fourth. The crew formed by Ginés Romero and Javier Cayuela (ESP6) was placed in second place with a first place in the first round.

Saturday was very hard with winds of up to 16 knots and waves that made the boats fly but the sailors had to give everything to squeeze their boats to the maximum. The big winners of the day were Juan Egea and Jerry Vinkestein (ESP-1), who won two races and were second in another. Meritorious was also the performance of the debutant as skipper Pablo Egea with his brother Guzmán as crew (ESP11) who got a second place after leading the sleeve a part of it. The ESP6 after winning the last round was provisional leader and left everything to say on Sunday.

Sunday dawned raining and promised little margin to decide a race that was very tight. Only one leg could be contested with very low winds of about 4 knots. After a rough start the ESP90 managed to win after beating the ESP66 by the minimum and thus managed to win the sleeve. The ESP-11 took third place.  This gave the title to the ESP90 in a deserved and very meritorious way after overcoming Saturday’s results.

The final classification was as follows:

  1. ESP90 Jose Sánchez and Carlos Gastaldi
  2. ESP6 Ginés Romero and Javier Cayuela
  3. ESP1 Juan Egea and Jerry Vinkestein

As always, many thanks to the Nautical Club of Altea for the organization and to the beacons and regatta director for their excellent work.

The spanish FD fleet will meet again in Torrevieja for the regional championship and then in Altea for the Yuasa cup before leaving for Poland for the world championship.

Nomination Juan Ignacio Egea Moreno as Vice Presisdent Development Flying Dutchman Class 5 (4)

Dear sailors!
I would like to inform you that the procedure of the nomination of Juan Ignacio Egea Moreno for the position of Vice President Development has been started a few weeks ago.
Juan has been sailing the Flying Dutchman for quite some time now with great involvement and enthusiasm for the class together with his suns Juan and Guzman. He is a great promotor and well respected person in the class especially in Spain.
So we are happy that he would like to take the position of VP Development and his great business experience and skills in the english language make him an excellent person for the position.
Personally I strongly support his nomination for the position and hope he will get the support of the whole class once his nomination is effected.
