ABANCA and the MRCYB renew their commitment to grassroots sailing in Galicia

· ABANCA officials signed an agreement this morning in Baiona to promote grassroots sailing in collaboration with the Monte Real Yacht Club

· Thousands of children have been able to start practicing nautical sports thanks to the support that the entity has provided for years to the club’s Sailing School

· The promotion of sailing among the youngest is one of the fundamental axes of the sponsorship strategy of the bank based in Galicia

ABANCA renewed this morning in Baiona its commitment to basic sailing in Galicia by signing an agreement that will allow hundreds of children to start practicing this nautical sport through the Monte Real Yacht Club Sailing School.

The Galicia-based bank once again bets on the Baionese club, giving it a boost that Monte Real considers essential to continue consolidating its training project, which includes dinghy sailing and cruising classes, and a special section for Sailing adapted for people with disabilities.

The commercial director of ABANCA, Gabriel González Eiroa, was in charge of signing this morning with the president of the Monte Real Yacht Club, José Luis Álvarez, the agreement thanks to which the club will be able to maintain the activities it carries out throughout the year, in which hundreds of children participate.

ABANCA was distinguished in 2016 with the Terras Gauda National Sailing Award for the best sponsor for its commitment to grassroots sailing through the support it provides to numerous sailing schools, clubs, organizations and companies related to nautical activity.

As its original entities did for decades, ABANCA maintains a close relationship with sailing in all its aspects, due to its educational, sporting and economic values. In addition to supporting basic and competition sailing, it supports different business projects related to the nautical sector.
