The first day leaves a triple draw in the lead - La Provincia

What a priori looked like it was going to become a close duel between the 'twins' X-37,'Star' Y 'Dragohomes', has given way to a more open competition in the Princess of Asturias Trophy, where they have presented their credentials the 'Butxaca' and the 'Jilorio', also Dufour-34 twins but of smaller length.

Behind the first working day, in the test organized by the Nautical RC of Gran Canaria the first three ships mentioned above march tied to points at the top of the classification provisional general, with the fourth of them lurking. That hard struggle is resolved this Sunday, last day of competition.

"I think we had better departures, but in the first race we had a boat that took us off. In addition, with this wind, the 'Butxaca' has sailed very fast and that has been noticed especially in open paths," said Gustavo del Castle, patron of the 'Damm Star'.

The 'Jilorio' by Laureano Romero was initially in the fight, but its owner already recognized on land that with the conditions that were given to his ship lacked speed necessary to keep up the fight with the pointers. The Lanzarote 'Antigua Craiova' closed in the two races the classification of the first five, in the ORC 2-3 ranking.

In the class ORC 4, the provisional general classification is headed by the 'Chance V' by Jorge del Corral, ahead of 'Duende' by Eduardo Olmos and the 'Alpispa' by Francisco Olivares, second and third respectively.
