After the first five races, the young skipper Javier Arribas Jr. was on a roll. After accumulating a 2-4-1-2-3, Arribas’ HAWKY was comfortably leading the series. Perhaps a bit of championship pressure or a combination of that and some early celebrations may have impacted their fall from grace with the sea (e.g. Neptune)! After amassing only 12 pts in five races, the HAWKY crew just could not keep it together and added a quick 6-5-3 for 14 pts in the final three races to still land on the podium, but collecting the bronze instead.
Javier Sr sailed WAYRA consistently all weekend and after Javier Jr’s Phoenix-like fall, took over the silver behind Olcese’s SCARAMOUCH. Rounding out the top five were Lucas Peschiera’s TIAMAT in fourth place and Augusto Navarro’s 7 BARES in fifth position. For more Peruvian J/24 Nationals sailing information
