EasyCurrents in Rio de Janeiro

EasyCurrents has travelled to Rio de Janeiro from December, 1st 2013 to December, 15th 2013,  to  carry out some final tests, regarding the tidal and current models for the bay of Guanabara, where the Olympic sailing race courses will be placed during Río 2016.

Rio was an ideal scenario to push the project forward, as the Iate Clube do Rio de Janeiro (ICRJ) hosted the 1st edition of the 49er Intergalactic Champions for 49er & 49erFX sailing classes, which took place from the 5th – 8th December 2013.
