With light winds from the northeast, the eighteen cruise boats registered to compete for the trophy PIZZERIA EL MUELLE, gathered in Torrevieja Bay to run the nine miles planned in the coastal race.
Although wind forecasts were not optimal and a soporific lull that would defeat the schedule was predicted, a sudden rise to 9 knots, which remained in the first third of the race, led the fleet and took the start, upwind, towards La Mata. After Cabo Cervera, the wind was gradually falling, announcing an absolute collapse, according to forecasts, with the first boats to return on the beacon. Given that most of the units were still far from this point, the race committee decided to shorten the test and take the time to pass the mark, thus avoiding the ships caught in the calm had a nice fun trip instead of a nightmare for many crews.
