“The X 35 Fyord  and the GS 46 Grupo Clinico Dr. Luis senis  won  each one on their Class.  Both of them with a complete set of Elvstrøm sails and both optimized by Elvstrøm Sails members. The X 35 Fyord won with an impressive result of four first places out of four races in Orc1 beating in that way the local and favorite X 37 Airlan Aermec .
