It will be the first time that the 52 SUPER SERIES competes on the increasingly renowned Atlantic racing waters of the Bay of Cadiz, from Puerto Sherry and the Puerto de Santa María, which is considered one of the most extensive marinas in southern Europe.
Typically, winds in June are expected to be reliable and moderate – historically winds are between seven and 15 knots for at least 20 days of the month, and the area is blessed with warm, early summer temperatures.
Puerto Sherry and its wide range of leisure facilities and restaurants are only 4km away from the historic center of El Puerto de Santa María and nestled between two beaches. Jerez de la Frontera, with its international airport and the famous speed circuit, is less than half an hour away by car, as well as Cádiz and Rota.
In June, we can expect a westerly wind, and occasionally the famous easterly Levante, although this usually comes in as a moderate 15kts wind in July and the following months.
The combination of good breezes, relatively easy transport and travel from all over Europe, the open waters and the onshore facilities sees Cadiz increasingly featuring as an international regatta and training venue for the Olympic classes, Volvo teams and more recently IMOCA ocean racers. In 2003 Cadiz played host to the ISAF Sailing World Championships, but since more and more events are gravitating towards the area, the 2019 Para Sailing World Championships take place here, and a memorable Finn European championships produced incredible racing and imagery in March 2018.
