25th of March 2016, Portugal, Lago Alqueva European Cup

Carmim Lago Alqueva FW Series 2016 Portugal - Second day of the event

Again the paradise of Alqueva had everything except wind. Was a amazing day, with sunshine, hot temperature arriving ate 23 degrees but without any wind all day.

In the end of the day some competitors try to go to the water, and plane two or three times wind the wind around 5 to 8 knots, impossible to Race.


The competitors take advantage of this day to make Tour in BTT, because we have a amazing sight seen and amazing spots for BTT, also because is the first event, many sailors trim the sails, rig everything and prepare for the next days.

In this second day we had a dinner party, with 70 people, competitors and all their families, in a traditional "Alentejo" restaurant.

For the 3 day, the forecast is better, less sunshine but wind around 10 to 15 knots, we hope that the forecast will be right.
