The Swedish Linda Rahm and the British Lucy McGregor, current European Champion, confirmed the status of favorites to victory at Tróia Portugal Women's Cup, event organized by Sun Sailing Team and sponsored by Turismo de Portugal and Troiaresort. Rahm has 10 wins, two more that McGregor and has three of advantage over the French Julie Bossard. The Portuguese Rita Goncalves is in 5th place, with 4 wins.
The very strong wind was the great protagonist of the 3rd day of Tróia Portugal Women's Cup. Indeed, only in the afternoon was possible to make races.
The French Julie Bossard was one of the stars of the day going to 3rd overall. The strong wind seems to have been the tonic needed to pass the North American Sandy Hayes.
Linda Rahm saw its unstoppable march be stopped temporarily by the British Lucy McGregor, but quickly resumed the path of victories and remains isolated in the lead.
Much celebrated was the first point of the Brazilian team of Caroline Béjar, who beat the Portuguese Rita Goncalves.
The national crew had trouble with the strong wind and only scored a win against the North American Sandy Hayes.
