Summary

Prize giving and miscellaneous

Location

The Club Náutico San Isidro is in San Isidro, a town to the North of Buenos Aires, approximately 47 km away from Ezeiza International Airport and 20 km away from the centre of Buenos Aires, capital city of Argentina.

San Isidro is a big town with many attractions but the most representative are the Cathedral and the square, just in the heart of the historic part of the town, characterised by old traditional houses and cobblestoned streets.

Address

1999 Mitre Avenue

San Isidro, Buenos Aires Province

ARGENTINA

Map

PLEASE  NOTE:
The island where the club is located does not render properly on Google maps. Only the car path round the club is shown and the rest appears as if it was the river. But there IS an island :)

Directions

From the Airport to San Isidro:

  • Ricchieri Highway up to General Paz Avenue (first exit after the Toll)
  • General Paz Avenue (boundary between Buenos Aires city and the province) up to Panamericana Ramal Pilar (Choose the exit that reads "Rutas 8 y 9")
  • Head North till the exit of Marquez Avenue. Go down Marquez till Centenario Avenue. Cross the avenue and go though the tunnel below the railway, the street changes name and becomes Roque Saenz Peña. Keep on the same street till you get to Libertador Avenue, where you turn left. Libertador Avenue becomes a cobblestone street. See further instructions below.
area gral

Once in San Isidro:

  • Libertador Avenue becomes a one-way narrow cobblestoned street that ends in Primera Junta Street.
  • Turn right and go down the winding street until it merges into Mitre, where the entrance to the club is.
area gral

Race Area

The race area is located at the end of the Delta, between the Emilio Mitre Channel and the coastal channel, a bit to the South when coming out of the club's harbour. It takes around 15 minutes for a team of 10 sailors to be towed from the club to the race area. The time it takes to get there sailing depends on the wind direction and speed but it should not be more than 20 minutes in light winds.

Please see below different maps and nautical charts that will help you have an idea of the geography and location of the racing area in relation to the club's premises.

Weather in October

Spring begins on the 21st of September, so October is a month that should be warm, but can be cold. Temperatures range from 18 ° C to +25 ° C, and days should be blue and sunny but there are chances of overcast skies and rain. The last three month of the year are usually the most windy, especially after midday, when the thermal shift settles. Spring is also a time of changes and the Westerly 'Pampero' might visit us, leaving behind strong shifty winds in flat choppy waters (the W, NW and SW winds come from shore). The SE wind can also be strong, reaching +25 knots, which after blowing for several hours will generate big waves.

Sailing conditions

As indicated in the Extra information sheet attached to the Notice of Race, the average sailing conditions in Easter are:

  • Daytime temperature: 18 ° C – 23 ° C
  • Water temperature: 17 ° C
  • Prevailing wind direction: E - SE
  • Wind speed: 4 to 22 knots
  • Hours of good wind: 1100 to 1730

What to wear

All in all, if you want to know what sailing gear to wear, it is advisable that you be on the safe side and bring a variety of clothes: dry suit, rashvests, shorts, pants, thermal layers, boots, and of course sunscreen, sunglasses and caps... and for those used to wearing them, bring your hikings!

San Isidro

San Isidro is a city to the North of Buenos Aires, capital city of Argentina, approximately 47 km away from Ezeiza International Airport and 20 km away from the centre of Buenos Aires. Its leafy avenues, the steep hill overlooking the river, huge gardens, cobblestone streets, the Cathedral and XIX century villas, are a ‘trademark’ of the city. Together with museums, modern shopping centers, and restaurant strips they have made the city a major tourist attraction.
