On Sunday the conditions were very different from the previous day, sun and sea with little wave, the wind shifted to the south and after a postponement due to lack of wind, finally the first start was given with a light wind of 4 knots that was rising up to 9 knots, allowing the J70 to complete a total of 3 tasks out of the 4 scheduled for the day. The podium remained as the day before, but with a much tighter score.
