2015 Mediterranean Sailing Meeting

A multi-class event featuring around 400 sailors, the MedSailing Meeting attracts junior sailors through to Olympians.

Eleven Spanish 420 teams took to the waters off Club Nautic el Balis on Spain's eastern coastline, for the 4 race series. Light winds kept the fleet ashore on Saturday, before clouds started to appear around midday and the breeze filled in. Four races were completed on the opening day, with a clear dominance from Marta Torner Rubies/Enrique Mir Pons.

Franc Bru/Nil Lopez claimed the opening win, but then finished just adrift in 2nd place for the next two races and closed their day's performance with a fourth place finish, to sit in second overall. Third to Alex Bru Vert/Andreu Pujol.

No racing on Sunday rewarded teams with leaderboard positions from Saturday's results.
