With an impressive turnout at the south cone of the globe, the first Soling continental event in 2006 will be held in Argentina at the traditional Club Nautico San Isidro from April 13 to 15 with teams from Brazil, Uruguay, USA and Argentina. Almost 20 boats are expected 14 entered online at the event website ( www.sa.soling.com ) and the others went directly to the registration office which is already open at the yacht club.

The car company NISSAN Argentina, the Vine brand Familia Zuccardiand the watches EVE (original pleasure)brand joined the event as sponsors and the traditional Stella Artois beer company as official provider during the championship.

The event schedule includes food and drinks all days and with an impressive prize giving ceremony with a Gala Dinner and dance party on Saturday at the Point restaurant in the yacht club, just in front of the pools; Hopefully weather will be ok and more than one will visit the clear waters.

Twice world champion ARG 32 Gustavo Warburg, Hernan Celedoni, Maximo Smith will be defending their title against the VIPAL-Rage team (BRA 73) George Nehm, Marcos Ribeiro, Lucio Ribeiro but figures like ARG 34 Martin Busch, Marcelo Tufarolo, Maximo Feldtmann or ARG 36 Pablo Despontin, Pablo Noceti, Ezequiel F. Sasso will be there also in the close fight.

Windguru forecasts 8 to 15 knots of wind and almost no rain and no clouds, which would be perfect for sailing without foul gear almost like summer. We hope participants and spectators enjoy the show.
