The sailors spent the day on land and most of them were hoping for another chance to prove themselves on the water. Antoine Albeau and Cyril Moussilmani were among those praying for wind, since they had a lot to gain from finishing the final race.

While Björn Dunkerbeck and Karin Jaggi were ready to compete at any moment, they also knew that they had already won if there was no further competition.

“In Costa Brava the most important thing is to win the first race because that’s often all we get here," said Björn Dunkerbeck. "Last year we only did one and a quarter races, this year we got a little bit further but not much. It’s always more fun winning when we’ve completed ten races during the week."
