Olcese Leading J/24 Copa LEXUS Regatta
November 25, 2015
Leading up to the Peruvian J/24 Nationals are a series of regattas off Peru’s Pacific coast. The most recent was the Copa LEXUS held off Chorrillos on the second weekend of November. An excellent turnout was anticipated, and the fleet of eight boats was quite competitive. One of Peru’s top sailors, Luis Olcese, was crowned the victor after posting straight bullets on SCARAMOUCH. Behind his team, it was a fight for the next few places, all finishing within one point of each other. Taking second was Javier Arribas’ WAYRA with a 5-2-2 record for 9 points. Lucas Peshiera’s crew on TIAMAT tallied 4-3-3 for 10 points for third position on the podium. Rounding out the top five were Rafael Verand’s NAMOYOC in fourth place and Javier Arribas’ HAWKY in fifth. For more Peruvian J/24 sailing information, visit http://www.j24peru.org/web/.
