El Club Nàutic S’Arenal (CNA) ha experimentado una magnífica jornada de competiciones en el marco de la segunda jornada del 59º Gran Día de la Vela – Bufete Frau

Following the momentum of the exciting opening day on Saturday, this Sunday was marked by ideal weather and constant wind which created ideal conditions for the competition. With a steady south-southwesterly (llebeig) wind blowing between 10 and 14 knots throughout the day, it created the perfect backdrop for the 200 or so sailors taking part in the races.
