The Prince of Asturias Trophy shines in Baiona with the presence of King Juan Carlos I

· The competition was attended this Saturday by the monarch emeritus aboard the Gallant who managed to get on the provisional podium of the Storax 6m class

· The Aceites Abril, the Movistar and the Bunda lead the classification of the big boats that the scarce wind only allowed them to compete in a single race

The Prince of Asturias Trophy that is being held these days in Baiona under the organization of the Monte Real Yacht Club and the Naval Military School of Marín today featured a luxury sailor among the fleet, King Juan Carlos. The monarch emeritus sailed in the Storax 6m class and managed to get on the provisional podium after the two races held in the bay of Baiona.

On board the Gallant, and accompanied by Pedro Campos, the king achieved third place overall, behind the Royal Thames Yacht Club’s Alibaba II, skippered by Miguel Lago, who won both races held in what was the first day of regattas for the 6m. In second place was the Erica of the Royal Yacht Squadron, skippered by Violeta Álvarez.

The 6m competition took place inside the bay, with good conditions considering the forecast, which announced a day with very little wind. The big boats, of the Optica Studio ORC 1, Aceites Abril ORC 2, and Gadis ORC 3 classes, haggled outside, with somewhat more complicated sailing conditions. The start was delayed several hours compared to the scheduled time and the northwest wind, of low intensity, shifty and with some bald spots, only allowed the holding of one test.

In the baton disputed by the ORC 1, with three upwind and three stern, the Fifty by Storax of the Monte Real Club de Yates won, skippered by Rui Ramada, but the Aceites Abril of the brothers Luis and Jorge Pérez Canal, of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, continues to lead the general classification. The Marnatura Pairo, with Luis Bugallo leading the crew, entered the provisional podium today with a third position in the absence of tomorrow’s tests.

In ORC 2, Willy Alonso’s Movistar, from the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo, remains at the forefront of the Príncipe de Asturias Trophy after another victory today. Yes, there were changes in second and third place, which were exchanged between Solventis, from Monte Real, skippered by Malalo Bermúdez, who came third on the first day and rose to second place overall; and Julio Rodríguez’s Starfighter, also from Monte Real, which holds the provisional bronze.

In the Gadis ORC 3 class, the Bunda, from the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña, signed a new victory this afternoon in Baiona, which distances it even further from its competitors. Tied on points in second and third position are Luis Manuel García Trigo’s Unus and Jean Claude Sarrade’s Fend la Bise, both with a Monte Real pendant.

Mariano Dios’s Aeris won the Coca Cola ORC 4 class, leaving provisional silver and bronze to Margem do Azul, owned by Frederico Lópes, from Monte Real Club de Yates; and to the crew of the Alabarellos, from Portonovo, skippered by Fernando Rey.

The ORC 4 completed a 16-mile journey from the interior of the bay to the Cíes Islands, passing through Carallones, La Negra, Bondaña, Salgueirón and Subrido, ending at the islet of Viños. Identical layout for Bel and Bel Open class, in which Vicente Cid’s Deep Blue, from Náutico de Vigo, won. In second and third position are the Pitoucho by José Carlos Ruiz from the Liceo Marítimo de Bouzas and the villain by Luis Bodelón from the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña.

Coastal regatta also for the classics on its first day of competition, which began with little wind at first but increased in intensity as the test progressed. The Penguin Uno of Carlos Romero, the Belisa of José Manuel Cores and the Arosa of Oscar Ortega were the boats that managed to sneak into the provisional podium.

In the Solventis J80 class, the wind was more favorable than in other race courses and allowed the fleet to contest four races inside the bay. Pablo Martínez’s Marina Coruña, winner of the previous edition of the Prince of Asturias Trophy in this category, managed to take first place today. He leads the provisional classification ahead of Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen, from the Monte Real Club de Yates, and Guillermo Blanco’s Meltemi, from the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña.
