25 boats compete this Saturday for the Comunica Trophy

Sanxenxo, Portonovo, Beluso, Bouzas, Vigo or Baiona are some of the clubs that will be represented at the Comunica Trophy that is held this Saturday in the Vigo estuary under the organization of the Monte Real Yacht Club and with the collaboration of the Real Club Náutico of Vigo and the Galician Sailing Federation.

In the absence of the registration deadline, which will remain open until one hour before the test begins, there are already 25 boats that make up the list of participants. Crews made up of some 130 sailors who will compete for the trophy aboard cruisers, one-design J80s and Figaros.

Everyone will hear the starting signal at two in the afternoon in front of the transatlantic dock in Vigo. After passing an unmarking buoy, they will start a route that will force them to pass through two other beacons, the Black one, to the north of the Serralleiras Islands; and Carallones, to the south, at the entrance to the bay of Baiona. Depending on the route chosen, it will be between 12 and 14 and a half miles before crossing the finish line.

An attractive route for a day in which the weather forecasts announce good conditions for sailing, especially in the Vigo estuary, with sun, a pleasant temperature and winds from the west-northwest that will blow with an intensity of between 8 and 12 knots. In the Bay of Baiona, just at the end of the route, the situation will get a bit more complicated, with more irregular and weaker winds.

If everything goes according to plan, navigation will be agile and the fleet will reach Baiona comfortably in just a few hours. Once the competition is over, the awards ceremony will be held for the winners. It will be at seven in the afternoon at the Monte Real Club de Yates facilities, with the assistance of representatives of the club’s board of directors and Comunica, the sponsoring company.

>> The registration period will remain open until tomorrow Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
