From Quality Coast to Quality Coast with the Baiona Angra Atlantic Race

· The regatta organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates and the Angra Iate Clube will unite two destinations that have the prestigious Quality Coast international distinction

· The fishing village of Baiona and the Azores archipelago have held this certification for years, which rewards the sustainability of tourist destinations

· Participants in the Baiona Angra Atlantic Race will be able to get to know and enjoy leisure activities in the most outstanding places of both destinations

Baiona, February 16, 2016.- The Baiona Angra Atlantic Race ocean regatta, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates and the Angra Iate Clube, will unite two destinations that have the prestigious Quality Coast international distinction. It is a recognition that distinguishes the environmental quality of destinations throughout Europe for sustainable tourism. Since 2007, the year of its creation, the program managed by the Coastal & Marine Union – EUCC, based in the Netherlands, has already awarded 140 tourist destinations from 23 different countries.

In the case of Baiona, the Galician fishing village has held this distinction, in its “Gold” category, since 2013, when it was selected from more than 1,000 candidates. It was fourth in the list of the 100 best coastal destinations worldwide, and second nationally, behind only Fuerteventura.

When evaluating the different destinations, Quality Coast does so based on five criteria: nature, environment, identity and culture, tourism and business; and hospitality and security. If the candidate sites obtain a result of “excellence” in any of these categories, they are awarded the “Bronze” distinction. If they achieve it in at least two of them, they are distinguished with the “Silver” Quality Coast, and if they have three or four sections with excellent results, they get the “Gold” distinction. There is also a “Platinum” category, which is awarded only to those destinations that obtain an excellent rating in all the criteria analyzed.

It is precisely this “Platinum” distinction that the Azores Islands hold, which in 2015 became the first Quality Coast Platinum destination in the world. The Portuguese archipelago thus achieved something that no other place had achieved since the creation of the program for these awards for sustainable tourism.

Baiona and Azores, two destinations united by the same distinction, will strengthen their ties even more in 2016 thanks to the Baiona Angra Atlantic Race, an ocean regatta that will start on July 3 from the Galician fishing village heading to Angra do Heroismo, a town of about 35,000 inhabitants located on the Terceira Island of the Portuguese archipelago.

The competition, for which the registration period is now open , will allow participating sailors to see first-hand the reasons why both places received this recognition. They will do so thanks to a program of social events and tourist visits organized on the occasion of the regatta.

Baiona, February 16, 2016 – The Baiona Angra Atlantic Race , organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club and the Angra Yacht Club, will unite two destinations that hold the prestigious Quality Coast international distinction. It is a recognition that distinguishes the environmental quality of destinations throughout Europe for sustainable tourism. Since 2007, the year of its creation, the program directed by the Coastal & Marine Union – EUCC, based in the Netherlands, has awarded 140 tourist destinations in 23 different countries.

In the case of Baiona, the Galician coastal city has held this distinction, in its “Ouro” category, since 2013, when it was selected from more than 1,000 candidates. It is in fourth place, in our list of the 100 best coastal destinations worldwide, and in second place nationally, ranking just behind Forteventura.

At the time of evaluating these different destinations, Quality Coast does so based on five criteria: nature, environment, identity and culture, tourism and business, and hospitality and safety. If the candidate places obtain a result of “excellence” in all of these categories, they are attributed to the “Bronze” distinction. If this result is achieved for hair less than two of them, they are distinguished with the Quality Coast “Prata”, and three or four categories are obtained with excellent results, obtaining the “Ouro” distinction. There is also a “Platinum” category, which is attributed only to destinations that obtain a rating of excellent in all the criteria analyzed.

And it is precisely this “Platina” distinction that the islands of the Azores hold, once in 2014/2015 they were not the first Quality Coast Platinum destination in the world. The archipelago of the Açores also achieved something that no other place had achieved before since the creation of the award program for these awards for sustainable tourism.

Baiona and Açores, two destinations united by the same distinction, will continue to do more of their links in 2016 thanks to Baiona Angra Atlantic Race, an ocean regatta that will start on July 3 from the Galician coastal city to Angra do Heroísmo, a city with about 35,000 inhabitants located on the Terceira Island in the Açores archipelago.

The competition, in addition to being open or the registration deadline , will allow the participating sailors to know firsthand the reasons why both places obtain this award. It is thanks to a program of reception, accompaniment and accompaniment in various events and tourist visits organized during the regatta.

The first of the starts will take place next Saturday, around half past two in the afternoon, after a preparatory meeting of coaches and committees. If everything goes according to plan and the weather conditions allow it, three regattas of about 40 – 45 minutes each will be held.

Something earlier will be the second day of the trophy, on Sunday the 14th, which will begin at half past eleven in the morning, with an identical program to that of the first day.
