RACING AREA

 

The area selected for regattas (boat races) are protected by the Bay of Laredo.

During the summer season, the main winds in this bay come from the North-East, with a average force of 12-14 knots remaining stable from the morning (11:00 a.m.) until the evening. These winds benefit cleared skies and pleasant temperatures usually below 26º C.

With this type of winds, the sea condition is always good, and can develop into a small swell with wind force increasing conditions.

Sea currents are also an important factor. The Asón River flows into the Bay of Laredo, where its stream is added to the tidal cycles (high tide and low tide). Sea currents in this bay are perfectly overcome with a normal wind force.

The distance from the RCNL to the regatta area is 1,5 miles, and the exit from the beach zone is free of waves.
