The Monte Real Yacht Club of Bayonne today resumed the activity of its Adapted Sailing School , through which it organizes outings to the sea for people with physical, mental, sensory or intellectual disabilities.

Those in charge of inaugurating this new stage, which will last until the end of the year, were 18 boys and girls from the Juan María de Nigrán Center , who this Wednesday went sailing through the bay of Baiona accompanied by the club’s trainers and their own instructors.

In the coming weeks, other groups such as Vontade (Association of the Disabled from Baixo Miño) or Encaixamos (Association of Persons with Disabilities from the Val Miñor region) will also join the initiative.

All of them find, in the activity organized by Monte Real, a great resource so that its users can get closer to the sea to enjoy a sport that brings them countless benefits , both physical and social. At the same time that they achieve greater mobility, balance and control of their body, they also enhance their social skills.

The Monte Real Club de Yates Adapted Sailing School was born in 2012 with the aim of bringing the world of sailing closer to people with some type of disability. Since then it has been growing thanks to the support of companies and institutions such as Fundación Repsol, Iberdrola or Abanca.

In this 2014 the club was awarded a distinction from the ADEAC for the elimination of architectural barriers and its work with disabled people. The goal for 2015 is to improve and expand the range of services with new investments in equipment and training programs.

The second classified was the Mi Moneda, by Ero Pons, who wore a pendant from the Monte Real Club de Yates de Bayonne.

Young promises of sailing in Galicia train at Monte Real

· The Monte Real Yacht Club Sailing School resumes its activity during the 2014-2015 school year with the support of ABANCA

· ” Sailing for everyone ” is the motto of a school that aims to bring this sport to people of all ages and conditions, to compete or simply enjoy the sea

· The activities of the yacht club include courses for children and adults, regatta team training and outings to the sea for people with physical and mental disabilities.

With the start of the school year just around the corner, at the Monte Real Yacht Club everything is ready to start a new season of the Sailing School, with which for years we have been training young promises of sailing in Galicia. .

Thanks to the support of ABANCA, the initiative has been gaining momentum over the years, and expectations for this new stage are very good. The goal remains the same as its origins, to bring the world of sailing closer to as many people as possible, whether or not they are members of the club. The motto “ Sailing for everyone ” makes this very clear.

Courses for children and adults, theoretical and practical training, regatta team training and outings to the sea for people with some type of disability are the main proposals for the 2014-2015 Season.

We organize this last activity, for people with physical and mental disabilities, through the Adapted Sailing School, an initiative that, barely two years old, was worthy, in 2014, of a distinction from the Environmental Education Association and the Consumer (ADEAC) for his work in removing barriers.

A recognition of the good work carried out that Carlos Rúa, the head of the school, defines as “ small steps towards big goals ”. Both he and the group of coaches at Monte Real work with great aspirations. They intend to transmit their love for sailing to as many children as possible, so that they can enjoy the sea and its benefits, which go, as they say, far beyond practicing sports.

With these pretensions it seems that, one more season, we will see the bay of Baiona full of boats full of young promises from the world of sailing. Or, simply, of boys and girls enjoying the sea.

The XXIX Trofeo Príncipe de Asturias party will include a “Plymouth afterdock”

The XXIX Prince of Asturias Trophy will include, in its traditional party on Saturday night, a Plymouth Afterdock, a meeting point where success after the regatta can be celebrated around the best gin & tonic.

It will be the time and place where sailors can discuss their triumphs at sea with Plymouth Gin , a gin that, throughout its history, has always been closely linked to the sea.

To speak of Plymouth Gin is to speak of oceans, historic ships, the Royal Navy and adventures. From a port, Plymouth, from which pirates, soldiers and adventurers departed. From a gin that keeps in its essence the courage of the Atlantic, with a flavor that differs from the rest because its recipe does not contain any bitter ingredient, and is slightly sweet.

After having been the official gin in the Queen’s (in Valencia) and King’s (in Mallorca) regatta, Plymouth is now also the official gin of the XXIX Prince of Asturias Trophy. It will be present throughout the competition and will be the undisputed star of the party to be held at Monte Real on the night of September 6.
