Argentineans Cruz Gonzalez Smith and Mariano Heuser Sail To Victory
As the fourth and final day of competition got underway, the three leaders in the general rankings were within three points of each other. The only race on the roster for Sunday, from St Jean to Public by way of Toc Vers and Mancel, was the determining factor for the final standings of the 13th edition of the St. Barth Cata Cup. Things quickly got complicated for Belgians Patrick Demesmaeker and Olivier Gagliani (Les Perles de St Barth–Bativrd), who were first at the end of the first five races of the week. But the other two teams in the lead, Cruz Gonzalez Smith and Mariano Heuser (SBDE) and Gurvan Bontemps and Benjamin Amiot (Stickerman) fought valiantly right to the finish line of a complex race, and finished first and second respectively on the last day of the regatta, and found themselves in the same order on the podium for this edition of the Cata Cup.
