All is set at the Real Club Nautico de Barcelona to celebrate the third event of the Merchbanc Barcelona Melges 32 Winter Series, an event that aims to show the high acceptance of this high performance one design racing machine in Spain.

Currently the activity on docks and jetties of the Real Club Nautico de Barcelona is frantic and teams are finalizing every the detail, installation, commissioning and logistics ahead of the expected date.

Among those competing in the Merchbanc Balcelona Winter Series, are the Spanish-tried and true Bribón-Movistar with Marc de Antonio at the helm and Hugo Rocha on board, Javier Sherk’s Gunter and Cabinet Manager helmed by Paul Tuduri.

The competition starts tomorrow with the usual scheme at 2.00 pm: three stating procedures to heat the fleet and then a practice race.
