The 2012 edition of the Helga Rivera Ladies Cup Trophy was won by the Portuguese Francisca Barros, from the Porto Yacht Club.

Támara Echegoyen Terras Gauda National Sailing Award for Sailor of the Year

The Monte Real Yacht Club of Bayonne will host, within the framework of the XXVIII Prince of Asturias Trophy, the delivery ceremony of the 2012 Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards, on Saturday, September 7, during the halfway point of the Royal Regatta organized by jointly with the Naval Regatta Commission of the Naval Military School of Marín.

The Yacht Club has just announced the first three winners among the seven categories that this year make up the Terras Gauda de Vela.

As Best Sailor of the Year, the award went to the Galician Támara Echegoyen, who last year was distinguished at the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards as Best Pre-Olympic Sailor. The Terras Gauda jury wanted, on this occasion, to recognize her Olympic merit, as a brilliant patron and team leader of the “Xiquitas Team” that in the last Olympic Games in London 2012, won the gold medal in the Women’s Match Race modality, a sporting success that rewards your effort and dedication.

In the category of Best Project of the Year, the Jury of the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards recognizes in Pakea Bizkaia the human and sporting values that the project led by the Basque sailor Unai Basurko has developed in 2012, promoting the defense of the natural environment maritime beyond our borders. Education for sustainable development, promoting respect among living beings towards biodiversity, the environment and natural resources, have been the objective of the extensive program developed by Pakea Bizkaia, which for half a year has crossed the Atlantic Ocean, in a third expedition divided into three stages: Bilbao – Bahía Blanca (Argentina); Bahía Blanca – Antarctic Peninsula; and Ushuaia – Getxo, with stops in the Canary archipelago, in Cape Verde, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. In this third installment, more than 22,000 young people have learned about the educational project, thanks to the visit to the sailboat, its ocean classroom and the DVDs made.

In this first block, the Jury of the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards also wants to recognize the excellent professional work of the television production company Panorama, specialized in the field of nautical, especially in the field of sailing regattas, where the company Castellón is a leader both on the national and international scene.

Hard conditions in the two days of regatta, highlighting the performance of Jorge Gonzalez Silva, with an eighth in the general classification.

It is also worth mentioning Yago Gonzalez Silva, who even with little experience in regatta, has finished all the sleeves.

Congratulations to the whole team for fighting in this tough regatta, as well as to the two coaches who traveled with the sailors.

The Prince of Asturias continues to unite the seafaring tradition and the sporting challenge

After the conclusion of the first of the appointments of the prestigious Xunta de Galicia President Trophy, the relay will be taken over by the Monte Real Club de Yates de Bayona and the Naval Regatta Commission of the Naval Military School of Marín, with the celebration of the XXVIII Trofeo Príncipe of Asturias, which in this 2013 edition will continue to combine the purest seafaring tradition with prestigious high-level sporting challenges by concurring, on the same waters of the Bay of Baiona and Ría de Vigo, a distinguished crew of Classic boats, the best Galician and national regatta teams from the ORC Cruises Division, Maxis and the female crews of the Ladies Cup.

The Yacht Club and the Naval Commission continue to bet on their Royal Regatta organization strategy, for a diversified combination in the staging of a wide representation of the classes that usually take part in sporting regattas, adding an incentive in the promotion of the Classic ships, thanks to the collaboration of AGABACE (Galician Association of Classic and Vintage Boats), with a special configuration in its most traditional layouts, and where open courses will predominate in the coastal or coastal sleeves.

The technical tests are reserved for all the Cruisers that come to Baiona with the purpose of winning one of the national titles at stake.

The Príncipe de Asturias Trophy has been declared a High Level regatta by the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation, as the Spanish ORC Cruise Championship and the Spanish First 40.7 Championship are disputed. The Atlantic Cruise Circuit is also at stake.

The Royal Trophy contemplates in its wide sporting rows two outstanding challenges with a long tradition in the history of Monte Real, the Don Juan de Borbón Trophy, which recognizes the Portuguese crew with the best result during the celebration of the Prince of Asturias Trophy, and the Ladies Cup, a regatta in which 6 women’s teams take part, representing the same number of Spanish communities, sailing aboard the First Figaros of the Novagalicia Bank Cruise School of the Yacht Club.

The intermediate phase of the Prince of Asturias Trophy will host, one more year, the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards Gala, an event of recognized prestige in Spain that rewards the best sports and institutional values highlighted in 2012. The Yacht Club will shortly issue the lists of the winners in each category of this edition.

The Prince of Asturias Trophy will be held on September 6, 7 and 8, under the tutelage of the Honorary Presidency of HRH The Prince of Asturias Don Felipe de Borbón, the organization of the Monte Real Club de Yates de Bayona and the Escuela Naval Military of Marin.

The XXVIII edition of the Prince of Asturias incorporates the Maxi Open Class

The XXVIII edition of the Prince of Asturias Trophy, which is jointly organized each year by the Monte Real Yacht Club of Bayonne and the Naval Military School of Marín, through its Naval Regatta Commission, will cast off in a few days.

From September 6 to 8, the Bay of Baiona and the Ría de Vigo will host a new high-level sailing event, the second of the regattas that make up the circuit of the Xunta de Galicia President Trophy, which is supervised by the Baiona club with the Royal Yacht Club of La Coruña and the Royal Yacht Club of Sanxenxo.

The great novelty of 2013 of the trophy dedicated to HRH Don Felipe de Borbón, will be the incorporation of the Maxi Open Class, giants of sailing that will provide an added spectacle to the competition, some of them just arrived from drawing the Fastnet Rock, in the Irish Atlantic.

As for the ORC, the Spanish Championship for the Galicia Zone is put into play again in the Prince of Asturias Trophy, defined by the grouping of the four main Divisions in two main prizes, that of Groups 0-1 and 2- 3.

The Classic and Vintage boats will also play a transcendetal role in the Príncipe de Asturias, which will once again sail the waters of Baiona and the Vigo estuary, as well as another of the queen classes in the Príncipe, the Ladies Cup.

Portugal will be represented by its best cruise fleet, with two outstanding valuartes at stake: the Don Juan de Borbón Trophy, which rewards the best vessel of the Portuguese fleet in the Yacht Club regatta; and on the other, the completion of the Atlantic Cruise Circuit, where the Baiona event is the last regatta, which will determine the final winner.

Finally, the 40.7 once again celebrate their special Spanish championship, a fairly large class in the great fleet of ORC cruisers.

With these first winks, almost 15 days before the regatta, the organizers estimate the participation to be between 80 and 100 boats.

Joint training at the Real Club Náutico de Vigo

During this week the MRCYB regatta team is carrying out joint training at the Real Club Náutico de Vigo facilities, together with the Povoa regatta team and the Vigo Náutico team itself.

In this way they are already training in the waters where the next regatta to which the MRCYB optimist team will attend will take place, which will be the Festas do Cristo Regatta at the Náutico de Rodeira during the next Saturday and Sunday.

Galician Cruise Championship

After three days of competition in the waters of Sanxenxo, today, Sunday, the names of the winners of the 14th Hotel Carlos I Silgar Trophy have been revealed: “Gomez Mostly Harmnless”, in ORC 1; “Codaste” in ORC 2; “Petrilla Accastillage Diffusion”, in ORC 3; and “Argos” in ORC 4 and Open. In addition, the “Codaste” has won the absolute title, proclaiming itself for the second consecutive year Absolute Galician Cruise Champion.

The “Codaste”, armed by Roberto Fontán and skippered by Nacho Campos, manages to win its second consecutive title of Galician champion and also does so in the same waters, in Sanxenxo.

Galician Cruise Championship

The current Galician Cruise Champion, the Codaste skippered by Nacho Campos, will try to revalidate the regional title this weekend in the waters of the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo.

This year, the MRCYB boat will have a difficult time due to the size of its rivals, but from the Monte Real Club de Yates we hope that it will not be a problem and they will give us another joy and revalidate the title.

Good luck!
