2014 press challenge

The Monte Royal Yacht Club of Bayonne, sponsored by El Corte Inglés held “The press challenge” this Friday, July 18, a day of fraternization in which several crews made up of friends from the media and club staff took part in a regatta in the bay of Baiona.

After carrying out three windward-leeward tests, the victory was won by Bouvento, with Suso Portela, from Faro de Vigo; Miguel Novoa, from Onda Cero; and Octavio Rodríguez and Ana Pérez, from Galician Television, patronized by Commodore del Monte Real, Miguel Lago, and Willy Caamaño.

Tutatis took second place in the competition. At the helm of the boat, the youngest crew member in the regatta, Yago García, barely 11 years old. The team was completed by Antonino García, from the Galician Sailing Federation; Carlos Macía, from Galician Television; and Rosana Calvo, head of communication for the Baiona club, all led by the head of the Monte Real Sailing School, Carlos Rúa, and by Jacobo Uscola.

The bronze, with a narrow margin of difference with respect to the second classified, went to Silleiro, with Xaime Arias, from Alicia Producciones; Pepe Costas, from Baiona TV; Eva Millán, from Radio Voz, and Santiago Gestal, in the crew, skippered by the manager of Monte Real, Miguel Riveiro, together with Iago Carrera.

And although they were left without a prize, the boys from Erizana, with Frederico Lopes, from RTP, deserved a big round of applause from their peers; Juan Caballero, from the RFEV; and Cristina Castro, from V Television, patronized by Victor Calviño and Santiago Meygide.

The president of Monte Real, Rafael Olmedo Limeses, was in charge of delivering the prizes; the Director of communications and external relations of El Corte Inglés, José Manuel Blanco; and Rafael Barreras, from the board of directors of the Baion club. The winners got a trophy and a bottle of Nordés .
