SCHUTTER CUP 2005
II International Intercompany Regatta 2005
Saturday, April 16th. 2005
The II International Intercompany Regatta took place on a wonderful sunny “spring” day. Invited by Schutter Arg., coordinated by VAC Events, 39 boats representing several companies, took off from Olivos on a route with fixed marks.
The departure which was controlled by the Club Nautico Olivos, seemed slow due to lack of wind. After a few minutes, a slight north wind appeared, which inflated the up to then week spinnakers, causing a knot of several boats to which screams of “water” were followed. This was taking place, while on board the committee boat, the “Gringa”, where a mixture of Dutch, Brazilian, German and Argentine people were gathered were happily watching accordingly provided with drinks ! The first leg was at full spi and at a good spead, followed by the second leg towards the coastline to the third and last leg back to the departing line.
