Last week the Brazil, the 2009 Brazilian 420 Nationals took place in Porto Alegre. With 18 crews and average breeze of 18 kts, the championship lasted 5 days and completed the expected 12 races. The winners were Felipe Haddad and Nicolas Castro, followed by Martine Grael and Daniela Adler, the female winners. Both crews will participate on the World Championship, in Lake Garda, Italy, in July.

The interesting thing about the competition was the difference in the ages of the sailors, that went from 15 to over 40 years old!
