SAILING CONDITIONS / RACING AREAS
Cascais has proven over the years to have some of the best conditions for yacht racing in Europe. Typically the wind ranges from light to low twenties knots and from different quarters over the period of the Winter Series. With less than half an hour to reach any of the main racing areas Cascais offers varied sailing conditions, with flat water and shiftier winds closer in the bay and larger ocean swells with more stable wind patterns further out west. The weather is normally warm with long sunny spells and an air temperature ranging from minimum 12/15ºC in winter to 20ºC + in the fall and early spring.
RACE COMPLETION RECORD
With several of the events scheduled over three days it is important to have a good prospect of wind. In the past five Cascais Winter Series a total of 247 races were completed out of 317 races scheduled (a 77% completion rate -much higher than many other venues!).
Over the last 11 years, a 96% success race completion was reached for the Grade I event HM King Juan Carlos I Trophy 80 races were held out of 83 scheduled).
