· The wind and sea conditions, with peaks of up to twenty knots and waves of more than three metres, filled the three regattas held in Baiona with emotion

· The competition organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates for the J80 class continues next February with two new days on the 13th and 27th

Exciting second stage of the Vitaldent Trophy organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club. The wind conditions, with peaks of up to 20 knots, and the sea, with waves exceeding three metres, filled the regattas held this afternoon in the bay of Baiona with emotion.

Rui Ramada’s Miudo, skippered on this occasion by his daughter Francisca Barros, won the day after achieving three second places in the three races held. The crew led by the Portuguese sailor managed to prevail over her two toughest rivals on the water, Virazón, skippered by Gerardo Alonso, and Willy Caamaño’s Alumisel. Both did a great job in the water and placed second and third respectively, separated by just one point.

Ferralemes, with Enrique Porto at the helm, came out ready to fight back and beat the bronze achieved on the first day, but finally fell off the provisional podium and had to settle for a meritorious fourth place.

The Luna Nueva of Juan Luis Tuero, skippered today by José Gándara; Namasté by Luis de Mira and Pazo de Cea by Rita Hernández are placed in fifth, sixth and seventh position. The Cormorant Nautical School closes the classification, which did not compete today.

The next appointment with the Vitaldent Trophy, organized exclusively for the J80 class, will be on Saturday, February 13. The date will coincide with the 420 Galician Championship, which is also organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club.

Monte Real returns in 2016 to international regattas with the Baiona Angra Atlantic Race

· The Baiona club returns with the Baiona Angra Atlantic Race to a type of competition for which it became world famous in the 1970s

· The test will depart on July 3 from the bay of Baiona and will have as its first destination the Angra Iate Clube, in Angra do Heroismo, on the Terceira Island of the Azores archipelago

· The Monte Real regatta calendar is completed with another 10 national events, among which is the historic Prince of Asturias Trophy

The Monte Real Club de Yates returns in 2016 to international regattas with the Baiona Angra Atlantic Race , a test that will start on July 3 from the Galician fishing village and that will have as its first destination the Angra Iate Clube, in Angra do Heroismo, on the Terceira Island of the Portuguese archipelago. The Baionese club thus takes up a type of nautical competition for which it became world famous in the 1970s.

La Baiona – Angra is one of the 11 regattas that are part of the Monte Real competition calendar for this coming year, an extensive sports program that opens this month of January with the J80 Class Winter League . It is a championship dedicated exclusively to this type of boat that gives continuity to the SabadellGallego J80 Class League, held in recent months in the Bay of Baiona. The J80 Winter League includes six test days, on January 16 and 30, February 13 and 27, and March 12 and 13.

In February, Monte Real will also be in charge of organizing the Baitra Trophy – 420 Galician Championship , which will be held on the 13th, 14th and 20th. It is an appointment that will bring together the 30 boats that make up the fleet of 420 from Galicia, and in which the club from Baiona will participate with 5 crews.

In April, two of the great competitions of Monte Real will arrive, the Winter Regatta and the Spring Regatta. The first, which this year will be held under the name of the AXA Trophy by its sponsor, will be on April 9 and 16, and the Real Club Náutico de Vigo will once again collaborate with it, as has been the tradition. The Spring Trophy, better known as the Repsol Trophy , also because of its sponsor, will take place on April 23 and 30 and the May Day holiday. It is a test in which the crews fine-tune their boats to face the strong area of the regatta season.

One more year, the Monte Real Club de Yates is once again firmly committed to grassroots sports, with the organization of a Baitra Children’s Sailing Championship on May 21 and 22, open to the participation of Optimist and Cadet sailors.

In June comes the traditional Galician Solo and Two Championship , a medium-distance regatta in which the main handicap is that the skippers of the boats have to handle them alone or with the help of a single crew member. It will be held on Saturday June 18, coinciding with the Social League final tests, a competition that is held throughout the year by the students of the Monte Real Yacht Club Sailing School.

A weekend later, on June 24, 25 and 26, the Iberian Championship Class 2.4mR will be held, an adapted sailing regatta. There will be three days of competition in which sailors from different parts of Spain, with and without disabilities, will compete under equal conditions in the bay of Baiona.

July will be one of the key months in the Monte Real regatta calendar, because in addition to the Baiona Angra Atlantic Race , it will include the forty-first edition of the Conde de Gondomar Trophy , one of the most attractive races for cruising sailing in Spain. It will include, as tradition dictates, the Baiona-Fisterra-Baiona route, more than 100 miles long, turning around the mythical Carrumeiro Chico lighthouse. The Conde de Gondomar Trophy will be held this year from July 22 to 25.

After being the stopping point in August for the Pornic – Baiona regatta, the great sailing event of the Monte Real Club de Yates will arrive on the first weekend of September, and one of the most important nautical competitions in Spain, the Prince of Asturias Trophy. On days 2, 3 and 4, various sports events of the highest level and numerous leisure activities for the participants will fill the town of Baiona with life.

Within the framework of the Principe de Asturias Trophy, one more year, the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards will be presented, awards that recognize the work of people and institutions in favor of the world of sailing, as well as their human values and sports.

The J80 Class Autumn League will be in charge of closing the Monte Real sports calendar for this year 2016. There will be four days of tests organized exclusively for these monotypes on October 15 and 29 and November 12 and 26.

For more information on the different competitions of the Baiona club, sailors can contact the club by email, writing an email to secretaria@mrcyb.com , or by calling 986 385 000. The media that need additional information can contact the club’s communication department at press@mrcyb.com
