France and Portugal know the MRCYB Adapted Sailing School

A group of representatives from the Finistère Handisport Départemental Committee (France) and the Alto Minho Intermunicipal Community (Portugal) visited the Monte Real Yacht Club today to see first-hand our Adapted Sailing School for people with disabilities.

Their objective was to see how the school was born, what its objectives are and how we work, since, as they told us, we are a reference for them when it comes to bringing sailing closer to people with all kinds of disabilities.

During the meeting we had with them and the visit to the club, we told them how these 5 years of intense work have been to turn the school into what it is today, and we showed them what our facilities are like, deserving of recognition for the elimination of architectural barriers.

Baiona, October 27, 2017.- Baiona hosts this Saturday the second day of the AXA J80 Autumn League, a competition organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates with the sponsorship of AXA Seguros and which takes place in a league format during the months of October and November.

After a blank first stage, in which the sailboats were unable to race due to lack of wind, the one-design fleet returns to the water this weekend with the intention of opening the championship and starting to design the winners’ podium.

The Regatta Committee, with Fernando Giraldo at the helm, will prepare a windward/leeward course for the fleet, with two tacks and two sterns, which the J80s must complete up to three times if the weather permits.

As of today, the forecasts indicate that the wind will blow with sufficient intensity to dispute the scheduled tests, so that the public will be able to enjoy sailing the sailboats again from three in the afternoon in the bay of Baiona.

The Okofen by Javier de la Gándara, the Namasté by Luis de Mira, the Luna Nueva by Juan Luis Tuero, the Miudo by Storax by Afonso Leite, the Pazo de Cea by María Campos or the Cansino by Fernando Yáñez will be some of the boats that We’ll see on the water.

The appointment will coincide with another of the events organized by Monte Real this weekend, the European nautical tourism congress Galicia Atlantic Destination , which brings together twenty nautical clubs and associations from all over Europe to discuss the current and future challenges of the sector.

Nautical tourism, under discussion at the Galicia Atlantic Destination

· Representatives of nautical clubs and associations from all over Europe debated this Friday in Baiona on the situation and future challenges of the sector

· The participants agreed to point out the great potential of Galicia to attract visitors from the old continent and pointed out possible improvement actions

· The congress travels to the Arousa estuary tomorrow, Saturday, to take a tour of the estuary before returning to Baiona for its closing ceremony

Baiona, October 27, 2017.- The Parador Nacional de Baiona hosted this Friday the first day of the European nautical tourism congress Galicia, Atlantic Destination , in which representatives of twenty nautical clubs and associations from the old continent discuss the situation and future challenges of the sector.

In the inaugural session, which included several presentations, round tables and workshops, the attendees highlighted the improvements registered in the ports and marinas of Galicia over the last few years, and agreed to point out the great potential that the community has to attract visitors from all over Europe.

But not everything was praise, since some problems were also put on the table, mainly related to the language and air connections. The difficulties in reaching Galicia on direct flights from many of the countries of origin of possible transits and the fact that in some marinas the staff barely speak English were noted.

Other improvement actions that were presented at the congress have an impact on the need to implement complementary infrastructures and services for ports and marinas; and carry out a better dissemination of tourist proposals in order to reach the greatest number of people possible.

Europe in the spotlight

If the authorities in charge of opening the Galicia agreed on something, Atlantic Destination was the need to promote the great potential of Galicia’s nautical tourism throughout Europe, with the aim of turning it into a place of reference for sailors.

The director of Tourism of Galicia, Nava Castro, in charge of inaugurating the Galicia, Atlantic Destination , pointed to the old continent as one of the main markets with which Galicia has to work, since, as he assured, 8 out of 10 boats that navigate the Galician estuaries come from different European countries.

The president of Portos de Galicia, José Juan Durán, also influenced this idea, speaking of the loyalty of the traffic they receive from Europe as one of the objectives of his department. “Galicia – he said- has achieved that the nautical facilities receive a greater number of visitors each year, and the effort must now focus on more qualitative than quantitative aspects”.

On behalf of the Monte Real Yacht Club, which organizes the event in collaboration with Turismo de Galicia, Portos de Galicia and the Baiona city council, its president, José Luis Álvarez, intervened. In his speech he invited all the attendees to get to know the attractions of our coast, among which he highlighted the fact of having “navigable estuaries throughout the year, a strategic position for transits, and unparalleled people, culture and gastronomy”.

Mini-cruises through the estuaries and strategies for regional nautical development

The representatives of the twenty nautical clubs and associations from all over Europe that attend the Galicia, Atlantic Destination were able to learn first-hand about two of the proposals that seek to promote nautical tourism in Galicia: the mini-cruises through the estuaries and the European Ecodestin project.

The president of the Galician Association of Nautical Activities (Agan +), Manuel Soliño, was in charge of explaining the mini-cruises through the estuaries. They are a series of navigation itineraries that link various routes with sectors of tourist attraction such as culture, heritage or oenology. The offer includes six routes through the Galician estuaries by ferry-catamaran or sailboat, with tours of areas such as the Arousa estuary, the Atlantic Islands or the fishing villages of the Vigo estuary, among others.

The Ecodestín project, presented by the manager of Estratexia Plus, Antonio Monteagudo, follows the example of development of the fjords in Norway and seeks to make the territory more attractive by promoting and developing the cultural heritage linked to the estuaries, rivers and coast of the Galicia Euroregion – North of Portugal. With European funds, the ports will be able to increase their transit docking capacity, make them more accessible and reinforce them with technology.

The congress moves tomorrow to the Arousa estuary

After the opening day held this Friday at the Parador Nacional de Baiona, the Galicia, Atlantic Destination will travel to the Arousa area tomorrow for a tour of the estuary.

The visitors, from Germany, Belgium, Denmark, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Portugal and the United Kingdom, will embark at the port of Cabo de Cruz, in Boiro, to sail to the island of Sálvora, included in the Maritime-Terrestrial Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia.

The islands of Noro and Rúa, the archipelago of Guidoiro, and the islands of Areoso and Arousa will be some of the other points that will be visited on the second and last day of the congress. A tourist train route through Vilanova de Arousa and a visit to the Valle Inclán House Museum will put an end to the meeting of European nautical clubs and associations.

Baiona, 25 de octubre de 2017 .- Representantes de más de 20 clubes y asociaciones náuticas europeas participarán a partir de este viernes y hasta el domingo en Baiona en el Galicia, Atlantic Destination, un congreso que pretende dar a conocer el potencial de la comunidad gallega para atraer a este tipo de visitantes.

Organizado por Turismo de Galicia, Portos de Galicia y el Monte Real Club de Yates con la colaboración del ayuntamiento de Baiona, el evento incluirá conferencias, charlas, mesas redondas y workshops en el Parador Nacional de Baiona, y un recorrido turístico por distintos puntos de ría de Arousa.

El Galicia, Atlantic Destination es el primer congreso de turismo náutico europeo que se celebra en el país y en él se abordará la situación actual de un sector que ha registrado un importante crecimiento en los últimos años y que en este 2017 ya ha generado en Galicia un volumen de negocio de unos 2 millones de euros.

Así lo destacó esta mañana en la presentación del evento el presidente de Portos de Galicia, José Juan Durán, al poner sobre la mesa unos datos que revelan la importancia que este tipo de turismo tiene para Galicia. “En los últimos 5 años –dijo Durán- hemos pasado de 7.000 embarcaciones en tránsito en 2013, a las cerca de 9.000 que se han registrado ya en este 2017”.

El aumento, próximo al 30%, adquiere una mayor importancia al conocerse el volumen de negocio que genera, no sólo para los puertos de destino, sino también para el sector náutico auxiliar, hostelería, restauración y servicios. Las cifras, presentadas por el máximo responsable de los puertos gallegos, revelan que el gasto medio por pernocta se mueve entre los 200 y 500 euros. “Tenemos ante nosotros un potencial de mercado extraordinario que no queremos ni podemos dejar escapar”, concluyó Durán.

En esa misma idea incidió el presidente del Monte Real Club de Yates, José Luis Álvarez. Dijo que “impulsar el turismo náutico es un reto de futuro que hay que asumir para seguir avanzando en la generación de riqueza, empleo y bienestar”, y que ese fue el principal motivo por el que propusieron la idea del Galicia, Atlantic Destination.  Destacó, además, el hecho de que el congreso se celebre en Baiona, líder en la recepción de tránsitos en Galicia.

La directora de Turismo de Galicia, Nava Castro, cualificó el evento como “una gran oportunidad para posicionar la comunidad gallega como referente europeo en turismo náutico”. En este sentido recordó la apuesta por alcanzar la excelencia por parte de los profesionales del sector náutico en Galicia, como así lo atestigua el hecho de que, de cada 10 instalaciones náutico-deportivas con la Q de Calidad que existen en España, 6 estén en Galicia.

En la presentación oficial del evento, celebrada esta mañana en el Monte Real Club de Yates, también participaron el alcalde y la concejala de turismo de Baiona, Ángel Rodal y Beatriz González; y el vicepresidente del Monte Real Club de Yates, Alejandro Retolaza.

El Galicia, Atlantic Destination dará comienzo el próximo viernes a las 10 de la mañana en el Parador Nacional de Baiona con la inauguración oficial del congreso por parte de las autoridades. Media hora más tarde se celebrará la primera mesa redonda, titulada “Galicia y el turismo náutico”; y a partir del mediodía se hablará de “Proyectos de desarrollo del turismo náutico”. Por la tarde será el turno de los workshops y sesiones de trabajo en grupo; y el sábado la actividad se desplazará hasta la ría de Arousa, donde está programado un recorrido turístico.

Alemania, Bélgica, Dinamarca, Francia, Irlanda, Países Bajos, Portugal y Reino Unido son algunos de los países de origen de los 22 clubes y asociaciones que participarán en el evento.
