Remarkable organization by Iate Clube de Brasilia; ISCYRA South American Vice Presidents; 7th District; Paranoa Fleet. Support from Brazilian Sailing Federation – CBVela and Marinha do Brasil (Brazilian Navy).

25 boats from 4 nations attended the event. All boats (except boats weighed at 2015 World`s) were weighed. Discrepancies shows boats from 20Kg under till 40Kg overweight. Modern boats were all close of minimum weight. Sail measurement except for sails stamped in previous international events. Black bands, point B and were checked. All pole and safety gear were measured and checked.

All 8 races were sailed in surprisingly medium heavy winds that caused damages, especially at part of the “Black Star” fleet.

7 Stars were “Black Star” (hull number under 7300) and there was a special prize for the winner.

Race Committee commanded by Carlos (Cuca) Sodré did a very good job. All other international (including one from Peru) and national jury made a precise job.

Event was sponsored by Banco Regional de Brasilia (BRB) and Stella Artois.

Good media coverage including front page at national famous newspaper "Correio Braziliense".

Free beer at "as much as you want" basis made a nice camaraderie among sailors and organizing committee. On Saturday we had a delicious dinner and band rock for the participants.
