MERRY CHRISTMAS

Dear friends and friends:

Just a few words to send you our most cordial Christmas greetings and our best wishes for the coming year 2021.

I am sure that this year 2020, which ends in a few days, has filled us with uncertainties, doubts and endless sensations that we will hardly forget.

It has also allowed us to verify that, when the commitment and quality of a team is firm, things can be done, albeit with greater difficulties. And this is the commitment that makes Monte Real great.

With the effort of each and every one of the sailors, from the youngest to the most experienced, we have been able to carry out the scheduled regattas and the most emblematic of the Club. Their support has been decisive in assuming that Monte Real should be, once again, leading our sport: sailing.

Our most sincere thanks to the sponsors and institutions that have not hesitated to support, especially this year, our firm challenge so that the sport we practice at sea could continue.

To the media, always willing to convey to society the beauty of a sport such as sailing: thank you very much for it.

And to all those with whom this year has been especially hard, and to their families, our warmest hug.

MERRY CHRISTMAS !

 

Jose Luis Alvarez
President of the Monte Real Yacht Club

The State Lotteries and Betting Trophy has had a magnificent day today to close the 2020 edition of the Spanish Sailing League, with wind and emotion until the last moment to define the final classification.

The eleven teams that have participated this year began the day with a series of clashes to complete the qualifying rounds, thus clearing up the mystery of who would be the six teams that would participate in the Grand Final.

Today the estuary was full to animate these last bars of the competition, with a wind that at times was capricious in intensity and direction before the entrance of a shower, but that in general contributed to the good development of the tests scheduled for this last day.

The crew of the Real Club Náutico de Valencia arrived with a comfortable advantage but without being able to trust, because the rhythm of the regattas and the impetus of the teams to win a place on the podium left no room for error.

Complying with the planned program, adjusted to the orange alert announced for 3:00 p.m. on the Galician coast, once the confrontations of all the teams were finished, the first six classified that would go on to the Grand Final were announced: RCN Valencia, RCN de Arrecife , RCN Torrevieja, RCN de Gran Canaria, MRCY Baiona and CN Altea.

It was the turn of the three final regattas, with double points. So far, all had shown their usual regularity. All but one, the Monte Real Club de Yates team that has been superior from the beginning in its waters and with a one-design that shows they know perfectly. The regattas of the crew led by Manuel María Cunha, together with Jaime de la Gándara, Antonio María Cunha, Vasco Tinoco and Marta Ramada, have been counted by victories throughout the qualifying series, ascending from eighth to fifth position in the provisional upon completion of these.

The moment of truth had arrived. Arrecife won the first of the final regattas, followed by Valencia and Baiona, which did not alter the positions in the table but brought the team from Monte Real a little closer to fourth position. Those from Cunha pressed the accelerator again and a new first in their locker, a third from Gran Canaria and a fifth from Torrevieja put those from Gran Canaria on the third step of the podium, those from Monte Real in fourth position and dropped to those of Torrevieja up to the fifth.

The first two places were decided, the Real Club Náutico de Valencia was the virtual winner of the Loterías y Apuestas del Estado Trophy ahead of the Real Club Náutico de Arrecife, but the third step of the podium was still up in the air and three teams with a margin of two points between them.

The Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona won the last regatta followed by the RCN de Arrecife and the RCN Gran Canaria, thus signing a splendid final and achieving a deserved third place in the general classification.

The team from the Real Club Náutico de Arrecife, led by Gonzalo Morales together with Fátima Diz, Roberto Molina, Tomás Fuentes and Ricardo Terrades, were unable to retain the title, but did secure a convincing second place.

And the Real Club Náutico de Valencia sealed its first participation in the Spanish Sailing League with a victory cultivated from the first bars. Axel Rodger, Pau Chirivella, Antonio Puig, Quicorras Urios and Mª José Algarra received their well-deserved winner’s trophy from the president of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation, Julia Casanueva, and the president of Monte Real, José Luís Álvarez.

The sports delegate of the Pontevedra Provincial Council, Gorka Gómez, accompanied the mayor of Baiona, Carlos Gómez, in the delivery of the trophy to the second-placed Real Club Náutico de Arrecife.

And the head of the Provincial Sports Service of the Xunta de Galicia, Daniel Benavides, together with José Luís Álvarez, handed over the third-placed prize to the Monte Real Yacht Club team.

Julia Casanueva, president of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation, recognized the success of this new edition of the Spanish Sailing League and the achievement of its objectives: “The RFEV had been trying to start this project for several years and thanks to State Lotteries and Bets last year we managed to start it.

It is a great initiative, the proof is in the incorporation of new crews this year. With the complex year we are experiencing, we have 11 teams that have opted for La Liga. In addition, it is noteworthy that there are many very young crew members who are joining older crews and this is very important; we are achieving what we wanted: to connect sailing between the different generations. There is a great projection also at European level because this league will continue in the European League and this greatly encourages all athletes “.

Axel Rodger, skipper of the RCN Valencia team, was proud of the success of his crew and was grateful for the celebration of the State Lottery and Betting Trophy, the Spanish Sailing League, “because it has been a complicated year in which we have sailed very little. We appreciate the courage shown by the RFEV, the CN of Calpe and the MRCY of Baiona, in addition to the support of Loterías y Apuestas del Estado for this event”.

After the storm comes calm and the weather today has shown its other face in the waters of Baiona to start the second phase of the State Lotteries and Bets Trophy, with winds that have not exceeded 7 knots of intensity, unstable in direction and calm sea .

The day was used to the maximum to close the day with four almost complete clashes, after which the Real Club Náutico Valencia team, skippered by Alex Rodger, remains at the top of the table with a good cushion of points over Real Club Nautical Reef Gonzalo Morales.

But it is the Club Náutico Torrevieja, owned by José Manuel Ballester, who now occupies the third step of the podium, unseating the Real Club Náutico Gran Canaria owned by Onán Barreiros.

The classifications tighten up to sixth position, which is reached by the host team, skippered by Manuel María Cunha, who flaunts his good knowledge of the one design by adding today the best partials with three first places, which is enough to move up two places in the table and enter that compact group that tomorrow will give everything to get on the podium.

The satisfaction and drive of the Monte Real Club de Yates team are clear in the words of Jaime de la Gándara, crew member of the team led by Cunha: “The truth is that we have done three tests and fought three victories, we have fought until the end. In Calpe we did not know the boat or the conditions, but here it is different. Today we have all made mistakes: the field is difficult and we have all had problems, but we have been able to solve them quickly”.

Regarding the options for the final day, the Galician crew member shows caution: “The level is very high and it is quite difficult to stay in the top positions because there is a lot of fighting. For tomorrow the part is complicated, everything is going to be more difficult due to the wind, the sea and the cold. We want to be in the final, whatever happens, and put the name of Baiona as high as possible”.

The Sailing Instructions indicate 11:00 a.m. tomorrow, Monday, as the start time for the first tests, with a weather forecast that announces more wind, and a program that foresees the holding of more qualifying tests until 12:30 p.m. to proceed then to the finals, with three regattas that score double and to which the top six finishers will access.

And after an exciting final, Samuel Beneyto has been proclaimed the individual winner of the Loterías y Apuestas del Estado Trophy, the Spanish Sailing League in its eSailing version, beating Miguel Cruz, second classified, and Joan Ravie, third.

The Dora storm has forced the start of the tests of the second and final phase of the State Lotteries and Betting Trophy to be postponed until tomorrow, which will be held until next Monday 7 in the waters of the Vigo estuary, based on Mount Royal Yacht Club.

The poor state of the sea advised the authorities to declare an orange alert throughout the Galician coast, thereby preventing the holding of sports competitions. But sheltered by the estuary, the eleven teams participating in this second edition of the Spanish Sailing League have held a free practice session, thus familiarizing themselves with the Figaro monotypes with which the tests will be held starting tomorrow.

During the first phase of the 2020 edition of the State Lotteries and Bets Trophy, held at the Real Club Náutico Calpe, the matches were held in Tom28 units, very different from the Figaros, as Axel Rodger, patron of the Real Club team, told us. Náutico Valencia, current leader of the general classification: “It is one more cruise ship, it is heavier, it has more displacement, it is larger, which requires more physical strength. We are a light crew, so with skill we will have to make up for our lack of strength and weight.”.

The Real Club Náutico Valencia team is seven points ahead of its closest rival, Gonzalo Morales’ Real Club Náutico de Arrecife, and thirteen over Onán Barreiros’ Real Club Náutico de Gran Canaria, a superiority that, however, doesn’t allow Rodger’s team to relax: “We are happy to start as leaders, but there are many tests ahead of us and for us this is a new championship. It is a boat in which we have never sailed, the sea is very different from the Mediterranean and there are very good competitors, so we have to face it as if it were starting over, with an advantage, obviously, that we value”.

After having made good use of this opportunity to get to know their mounts, the teams are ready to begin the clashes, having in many cases reinforced their crews with a view to this final battle to win the Loterías y Apuestas del Estado Trophy, the Spanish Sailing League, and be one of those designated to represent Spain in the European League.

As planned, the regattas for tomorrow, Sunday, will begin at 11:00 a.m. and, as the regatta director, Luky Serrano, comments, “The intention is to do as many regattas as possible to recover today’s, although with the “tight” schedule it is very complicated. On Monday we will start soon with qualifying regattas and, starting at 12:30 p.m., the finals, with three regattas that score double and to which the top six finishers have access”.

The Monte Real Club de Yates has hosted this noon the presentation of the second phase of the State Lotteries and Betting Trophy that will begin this Saturday, December 5.

The event, which was attended by José Luís Álvarez, president of the Monte Real Yacht Club, Alejandro Retolaza, vice president of the MRCY, José Ramón Lete Lasa, general secretary for sports of the Xunta de Galicia, Gorka Gómez, deputy for sports from the Pontevedra Provincial Council, Óscar Martínez, deputy mayor of Baiona, and Marta Fernández-Tapias, territorial delegate of the Xunta de Galicia in Vigo.

The president of the host club was in charge of opening the presentation, the last test of the sports calendar of the Monte Real Club de Yates, emphasizing the rigor with which the entity applies the required security protocols and affirming that it “It will be, without a doubt, a great competition that we encourage you to enjoy from land, since the regattas can be seen from many points around the bay”.

After the intervention of the rest of the authorities, José Ramón Lete Lasa, General Secretary for Sport of the Xunta de Galicia, closed the act highlighting that “The commitment of Loterías y Apuestas del Estado to sport and to this Spanish Sailing League, in its second edition, is one more example of the entity’s commitment to sport, with which it has always been very committed, promoting so many and so many competitions” .

11 teams meet in the waters of Baiona –Pontevedra– to fight for the final victory in the State Lotteries and Bets Trophy, La Liga de Vela. If the first of the two events that make up this league –the one held in the waters of the Valencian Community (Real Club Náutico Calpe)– made it clear that the competition was going to be tighter than in the previous edition, Galicia –Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona– will write the name of the winning team.

Unlike in the first edition of this League (2019), the town of Pontevedra will be in charge of organizing the grand final – in 2019 it hosted the opening act.

The teams will have a handicap in this final and that is that the boats selected to compete in the final will not be the same as in the first round. On this occasion the Tom28 will be replaced by the Figaro that the Galician club has, so the experts in the first boats will have to make an effort to get the most out of these monotypes.

The Real Club Náutico de Valencia team, with Axel Rodger as leader, has already made its potential clear in Mediterranean waters, finishing with a margin of more than six points over the winner of the first edition of the State Lotteries and Bets Trophy, the RCN of Arrecife skippered by Gonzalo Morales.

Everything is in a fist between the second and fifth classified and it is that between the RCN of Arrecife, the RCN Gran Canaria -with Onan Barreiros as skipper-, the RCN Torrevieja, with Jose Manuel Ballester as skipper, and the Club Náutico Altea there is hardly nine points.

If the weather conditions allow it, the Regatta Committee of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation will try to finish all the scheduled rounds –in two groups of 6 boats– after the first 15 tests completed in fleet Round-Robin format.

Sharing dates with the outcome of the State Lotteries and Gambling Trophy in its natural environment, the waters of Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona, the eSailing version of the event will also experience its individual final phase, which will be held on Saturday, December 5 from 9:00 p.m.

 

DECLARATIONS OF THE OFFICIAL PRESENTATION IN BAIONA

“By complying with all the security protocols required by COVID19, this year we were able to celebrate events as important as the Conde de Gondomar Trophy or the Príncipe de Asturias, and we are going to close the sports calendar with another event of great relevance in the national nautical scene: the Spanish Sailing League. The Royal Spanish Sailing Federation has chosen us again as the organizer of the tests, and from Monte Real we can only thank the trust placed, once again, in our club. It will be, without a doubt, a great competition that we encourage you to enjoy from land, since the regattas can be seen from many points around the bay” – José Luis Álvarez President of the Monte Real Yacht Club
