· The club has requested a grant from the Consellería do Mar de la Xunta de Galicia through the FEMP and the GALP7 to be able to carry out a series of improvement works to provide a better service to pilgrims
· Among the actions planned is the construction of an access ramp for people with disabilities and the reformulation of various facilities to minimize energy consumption
· Other measures that are intended to be implemented involve the application of discounts to pilgrims who stop at the club within the framework of the Xacobean Nautical Crossing and a special discount for women
One of the objectives that the Monte Real Yacht Club has set for this 2018 is to improve its facilities in order to provide a better service to pilgrims who want to do the Camino de Santiago by sea within the framework of the “Xacobean Nautical Journey ” . This is a new proposal, promoted by the Xunta de Galicia and the Association of Galician Nautical Clubs (ASNAUGA), which offers sailing lovers the possibility of sailing the pilgrimage route to Compostela.
To complete it, there are two possibilities: a north route, which starts in Ribadeo; and a southern one, which begins in Baiona, at the historic Monte Real Yacht Club, chosen as the starting point for the Xacobean Nautical Crossing due to its long and prolific history in the Galician nautical scene, and because it also has the Q of Tourist Quality, an essential certification to be part of the initiative.
Despite being within the group of 13 Galician nautical clubs distinguished with the Q for Tourist Quality, the Monte Real Club de Yates seeks to improve the attention it pays to its pilgrim transits and for this reason has requested a subsidy from the Consellería do Mar de la Xunta de Galicia through the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (FEMP) and the Local Action Groups of the Fisheries Sector (GALP) to execute the actions.
With the planned works, the Monte Real Yacht Club intends to improve its facilities to welcome the flow of visitors with quality guarantees, while renewing certain services to achieve greater energy savings and responsible use of energy.
Among the actions scheduled are the construction of a 100% accessible ramp that guarantees access to the terrace for people with functional diversity and the renovation of the sanitary facilities, adapting them to responsible consumption and energy saving protocols.
Other measures that are intended to be implemented involve the application of a 15 percent discount on club fees to pilgrims who stop at Monte Real within the framework of the Xacobean Crossing, increasing that discount to 25 percent in the event that the patron of the boat is a woman and the inclusion of a visit to the Baiona fish market in the price of the mooring, with the aim of making all those pilgrims who wish to know this important economic activity of the fishing village.
The intention of the Baionese club is to take advantage of the launch of the proposal of the “Xacobea Nautical Crossing” by the Xunta de Galicia to renew its facilities and promote this new tourist product, attracting a new profile of visitors to Baiona and mitigating the tourist seasonality in which the summer and winter periods continue to be very different.
Likewise, Monte Real will favor the economic revitalization of the municipality, since it undertakes to carry out all the planned actions with local suppliers in the area, provided that the business fabric allows it.
