Doublehanded Dutch Victory for Windshear

Hans Mulder, the Dutch owner of the J/105 WINDSHEAR, recently sailed a 35nm doublehanded race in L’Escala Spain. Here is the report from Hans and the Club Nautic L’Escala. "The J/105 WINDSHEAR from Club de Vela Golfus is the winner of the IX Commodore’s Cup-Jotun Grand Prix that brought together a total of 20 doublehanded racers to the starting line. The long-distance regatta began at 1105 hrs and was the second sporting event in the calendar of activities that the Club Nàutic L'Escala has prepared to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The Dutchman sailing the J/105 WINDSHEAR, Hans Peter Mulder, took the absolute class and overall victory after being one of the few boats that managed to finish the race in the established time. The northeast wind, between four and eight knots at the start, began to diminish when the fleet began to reach Messina Island. As a result, many boats did not finish within the time limit for the race. WINDSHEAR was also the first boat to arrive at 22:37:36 hours after racing for a total of 11 hours, 32 minutes and 36 seconds to complete the 35.5nm course. With departure from L'Escala, the route made the fleet navigate to a virtual buoy, the Medes Islands, and the island of Messina before returning to the starting point."
