I've been invited by ISAF to go to "V Open de España" Match Race as an umpire, which will be my first Grade 1. It's in Calpe, about a 100 klicks south of Valencia. On Google Earth I can find two marinas. I still have to receive additional information about the venue, but if its the one on the right it seems to be next to a great big rock, which will no doubt have a severe impact on the wind patterns locally. Does anyone reading this know more? Please leave a comment and tell me. In the mean time I'll have a look at the clubs website and practice Spanish... I already learned my name translates into: Hombre del Clavo!
