The Martín Códax Trophy Committee meets to analyze the route

After leaving the Carallones and La Negra buoys to starboard, the sailboats will enter the Costa de la Vela, with the Cíes Islands to port, also taking the Picamillo Lighthouse to port, after passing the entrance to the Ría de Pontevedra. The tack inside the Arousana estuary will take place at the metal buoy of El Ter, which will be left to port, to start the way back to Baiona. The Committee establishes a passage control at this point in El Ter, taking intermediate times that will already offer a first partial result of the regatta.

On their return, the sailboats will leave the Camouco Lighthouse on the port side, with Ons Island sighted on the starboard side. Sailing will once again be inland, establishing the arrival in the area of Viños, close to the Island of San Martiño, the south of the Cíes.
