The Aceites Abril of the brothers Luis and Jorge Pérez Canal managed to revalidate this Tuesday its title of champion of the Count of Gondomar, a trophy that the ship of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo had already won in two previous editions, in 2013 and 2016.

Ourenses were among the favorites to win the championship organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club with the sponsorship of Banco Sabadell, and they did not disappoint on the water. They were the fastest to complete the Carrumeiro Chico stage, the longest in the competition, and managed to cross the finish line always among the first in the rest of the tests held since last Saturday in the Rías Baixas.

Those of the April Oils took the gold of the competition leaving the silver to their teammates, the crew of the Pairo 8, who sailed in this edition led by two very young skippers of just 22 years old, Alberto Basadre and Luis Bugallo. Alternating to the cane in the different stages, both were the ones who put the boat armed by José Luis Freire on the podium of honor.

The bronze in the competition went to another of the boats that stood out the most in the regattas, Alberto Moro’s new Solventis, who sailed wearing a pendant from the Monte Real Club de Yates and with Malalo Bermúdez at the wheel.

The scheme of the definitive general classification, of Aceites Abril – Pairo – Solventis, was the one that also resulted in the Storax ORC 0-1 class, which this afternoon the last two races of the trophy were held at the Cíes Islands anchorage. There were two windward-leeward voyages, about 6 miles apart, that the entire fleet sailed with a northwesterly wind averaging 14 knots with gusts of 18.

Luis García Trigo’s Unus, from Monte Real, was the boat that won the PSA Retail ORC 2-3 class. He did so by improving his results in each of the tests that were held since last Saturday. The second prize in the class went to the Sada Marina in the hands of Cándido Losada’s Inosa; and the third was taken by Fend la Bise, by Jean Claude Sarrade, who ran for the organizing club.

In the Coca Cola ORC 4 class, the podium was made up as follows: the Balea Dous of the Real Club Náutico de Rodeira rose to the top. With Luis María Pérez at the controls, the crew posted the best results in its category, with three first places in the four races held. The following steps of winners were covered by two boats from Monte Real, the Margem do Azul III of Santiago Gómez and Frederico Lopes; and Abal Abogados/Lagar de Pintos/Fanautic de Mariano Dios.

In the forty-second edition of the Conde de Gondomar Trophy there was also a place for monotypes, both J80 and Fígaros. In the J80 Rías Baixas class, Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen started as the favorite and, despite not being able to achieve full victories, was the undisputed winner. Manuel María Cunha’s Marías and Guillermo Caamaño’s Virazón were second and third respectively.

In the Martin Miller Figaro class competition, it was the one in which the classification varied the most throughout the different regattas, producing continuous changes in the first positions. Finally, Tutatis de Brais Acevedo got on the podium; the Erizana by Rosalía Martínez and the Silleiro by Santiago Meygide.

At the awards ceremony for the Count of Gondomar, which was attended by the Deputy General Manager of Banco Sabadell, Pablo Junceda, as the main sponsor, the plaque was also presented to the winner of the Spanish PSA Retail Zona Galicia Heights Championship, which was won by the Siradella of the Nautical Club of Portosín, skippered by Francisco Gude.

Ten-year-old sailor Pablo Marquina received an honorable mention for the youngest participant in the Conde, in which he competed as a crew member on the J80 Virazón.

The next appointment in the regatta calendar of the Monte Real Yacht Club is the Principe de Asturias Trophy, which will be held on September 1, 2 and 3.
