In ORC 2 things were clearer from the beginning of the Conde de Gondomar Trophy.

For the ORC 3 it was their third task, the first being the turn to the Camouco Lighthouse, on the 25th, and the return to the Cíes Islands, as the second coastal task also traced on Saturday.

Navigation without great difficulties, although some spinnaker and rigging breakages were recorded, due to areas where the wind pressure was greater, causing the occasional scare with the waves.

Castrosua, led by Willy Alonso (MRCYB) once again delivered, winning this second stage, consolidating his position as leader, not only in his grouped ORC Division 0-1, but also in the overall Conde de Gondomar Trophy.

Tomorrow the fourth and final test will be held for ORC 0-1 and 2, and the third for ORC 3, starting at 12 o’clock, and where the Committee plans to set up a test to the wind, that is, a windward- leeward between buoys, approximately 8 miles long, with two upwind and two stern, where each linear layout will be around 2 nautical miles.

El Conde already has its first leaders after completing the long coastal route

The XXXVIII edition of the Conde de Gondomar Trophy already has its first leaders, after the dispute on the first day of the county regatta, in which the names of the different lists by class have provisionally left their mark.

Departing at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 25, Top scheduled for 11 a.m. and delayed by the Committee to gather skippers and crews in the Yacht Club garden, where a minute of silence was observed for the victims of the terrible accident that occurred on Wednesday night in Santiago de Compostela, the sailboats crossed the line sailing as a fleet the three divisions into which the cut or rating (sail capacity of the boat and size) has been divided, ORC 0-1, ORC 2 and ORC3.

Clean departure from the interior of the Bay of Baiona, with a first direct boarding to the Carallones and La Negra beacons, without having to use an unmarking buoy, thanks to the northwest that indicated its origin. The wind was around 8-10 knots, an intensity that was maintained on average during the total 96-mile route of this first day, between Baiona – Carrumeiro Chico (Ensenada de Finisterre) – San Martiño Island (Islas Cíes).

After passing through the maritime signaling buoys, all the sailboats took the option of navigating around the outside of the Cíes Islands, first leaving the Boeiro Lighthouse on its starboard side, with the exception of the ORC 3, which sailed along the Costa de la Vela, as it had a shorter route (40 miles) and whose turning point was the Camouco Lighthouse, located north of Ons Island. Navigation without great difficulties, with a small wave, barely 1 meter.

Five minutes after the official time of the Top, the Committee gave a new departure, in this individual case, to the Armeigin III, a powerful 70-foot long (21 meters), which sailed as part of the Count of Gondomar’s fleet, but with a record of time independent of the rest of the participating boats.

Beautiful landscape scenes mixed with the beauty of the tactics on the sides of the sailboats, marking in a very defined way the favorites for the general classification of this first great section, such as Castrosua, Pairo 8 and Aceites Abril, in the case of the ORC 0-1, or the Bosch Communication Center, Cachete or Alimentos de Zamora, in ORC 2.

Gran Jotiti and Cenor&Electrolux sailed at their own pace, the former intending to take advantage of the test as training for their preparation for the Fastnet, and the latter with the aim of breaking his own record again at the Conde de Gondomar.

An inflatable boat from the MRCYB moved in advance, informing the Committee of the prevailing winds in each zone. Thus, from Corubedo to the north, the component changed quadrant, and from the southwest it moved to the northwest. The intensity was maintained in both cases between 8-10 knots on average.

In the vicinity of the Carrumeiro Chico, a control boat from the Yacht Club was anchored, with a regatta official and sailors who carried out control tasks as it passed through the mythical lighthouse of Ensenada de Finisterre.

The first to turn it around was Cenor&Electrolux (RCR Vilagarcía), owned by Martín Bermúdez, who did it in real time. However, the rating was favorable to Aceites Abril (RCN Vigo), owned by the Pérez-Canal brothers, who won the section. After the Ourenses came Castrosua, owned by Willy Alonso, and Pairo 8, owned by Marga Cameselle, who was fourth, both from the MRCYB. Third position went to Cenor&Electrolux itself.

From this moment the second test began, without stopping the sailboats, projecting the way back to the Cíes Islands, where the Committee had anchored.

The Bosch Communication Center (CM Canido), by Ramón Ojea, did the same, and also won this first heat.

After 6 hours 51 minutes and 44 seconds, the Cenor&Electrolux made its entrance in real time, taking the entire track in compensated time for Willy Alonso’s Castrosua. Oils April was second overall on the first day, and Pairo 8 was third.

Bosch Communication Center repeated victory, and also took the second test. Cachete, by Francisco Edreira (CN Sada), was second, with Alimentos de Zamora (CDR Zamora), by Juan Carlos de Ana, third.

In the group of ORC 3, the Asturian Juan Luís Tuero, triumphed with his New Moon (MRCYB). Enxuto (CN Combarro) of Pablo Conde, was second; and the Margem do Azul (MRCYB) of Frederico Lopes, third.
