Team NORAUTO firing on five cylinders in windy Sotogrande

Adam Minoprio steered NORAUTO to five straight victories on a breezy first day at the GC32 La Reserva de Sotogrande Cup in the south of Spain.

The warm Poniente westerly breeze was blowing around 14 knots at the start of the afternoon but later picked up to gusting 20 knots, with the fleet putting a reef in their mainsails after two of the five races. It didn’t matter what configuration the GC32s were racing in, however, NORAUTO was the master of all situations.
