El Salaño Dos is proclaimed winner of the Galician Championship of A Dos

  • The people from Vigo won the regional title and the Rías Baixas A Dos Circuit
  • In the j80 class, the winner was the Cansino of Nano Yáñez and David Uscola, who achieved a comfortable advantage of two minutes and 41 seconds over the second classified
  • Framed in the Prima Vinia Trophy, the event paid tribute for the fifth year to Don Rafael Olmedo, president of Monte Real for more than four decades

The wind was once again the protagonist in the second call of the year for the Galician Solitary and Two-handed Championship, which was held today, Saturday, October 5, as part of the Prima Vinia Trophy and organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates y the Royal Galician Sailing Federation. Although it was difficult for Eolo to enter, finally the Regatta Committee was able to give the start for a single coastal race as planned, in which Salaño Dos of the Vigo team formed by Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure was the winner.

Yesterday, Friday, after the confirmation of registrations and safety checks at the Baion club, the organization and skippers agreed to delay the start of the regatta by one hour due to the forecast of very light winds until noon today. The conditions, in any case, did not prevent the fleet from fighting this time for one of the most anticipated titles of the season.

Thus, after several hours of waiting in the water, it was not until after 3:15 p.m. today that the fleet was able to hear the warning signal for a departure located in front of the Cíes Islands and with very light wind conditions, although little by little they increased until the seven or eight knots of intensity in the final stretch of the regatta.

The route, finally about seven and a half miles, took the fleet from the start to the Tofiño mark to then set course for Subrido, where the Committee opted to shorten the route and place the finish line before the wind started to fall again.

The first to complete the test was Salaño Dos with a reversed time of two hours and six seconds, also achieving a more than enough advantage to also win in compensated time and thus become the new Galician champion of A Dos. From behind, the J80 ¡Ay Carmela! –which scored both for the one-design general classification and for the A Dos- took second place and third place was occupied by the Bon III of Víctor Carrión and Ana Sardiña.

In addition to the regional title, the Baionesa event also closed the 2019 Rías Baixas A Dos Circuit. After holding the Vuelta a Cíes, Vuelta a Barbanza, Faro de Corrubedo Gran Trofeo and the Paco Alvariñas Memorial events, the Prima Vinia Trophy has put an end to one of the most demanding circuits of the season, in which victory it has also been for Salaño Dos. From behind, second place in the circuit was definitely occupied by ¡Ay Carmela! and third was the Bon III.

In the real-time competition of the J80 monotypes, the fastest was the Cansino of Nano Yáñez and David Uscola, who crossed the finish line with an advantage of almost three minutes over the second classified, the ¡Ay Carmela! by Juan Martinez and Alfonso Rodriguez. The third position, meanwhile, was occupied by the Ferralemes of Jaime García and Oswaldo Álvarez.

After finishing the regatta, the awards ceremony is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. at the Monte Real Club de Yates and will be attended by Milton Fernández, manager of Prima Vinia; José Luis Álvarez, president of the MRCYB; Manuel Villaverde, president of the Royal Galician Sailing Federation; Santos Héctor on behalf of the Pontevedra Provincial Council, and Daniel Benavides, Sports Delegate of the Xunta in Vigo.

Monte Real summons again the fleet of Solitaires and A Dos for the Galician Championship

  • After being deserted in June due to lack of wind, tomorrow, Saturday, the fleet will return to the water in Baiona to compete in the regional championship, which is held as part of the Prima Vinia Trophy
  • The event, which will pay tribute to the president of the Monte Real Yacht Club for more than 40 years, Mr. Rafael Olmedo, will also put an end to the Rías Baixas A Dos Circuit
  • Depending on the conditions, the Regatta Committee has to start for a single coastal race of about 26 miles in total

 

Last June, the lack of wind prevented the fleet from completing the route that would define the Galician champions of the Solitaires and A Dos divisions in 2019 on time. Now, almost four months later, the Monte Real Club de Yates reconvenes these two classes to put the regional title back into play within the framework of the Prima Vinia Trophy. The appointment, in addition, will also end the Rías Baixas A Dos Circuit and will pay tribute to Don Rafael Olmedo, who was president of the Baion club for more than 40 years.

With the start scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday at 11:00 am, a large part of the teams are already in Baiona to confirm their participation in this second call for one of the most anticipated tests of the season. It is the eighth consecutive year in which the Royal Galician Sailing Federation delegates the organization of this regatta to Monte Real and the truth is that, after having lost the title in June, the club has chosen to repeat the championship before the end seasonal.

The classes that will opt for the award will be the same ones that already participated in the first call. There will be a Solitaire division, in which ships with only one crew member compete; class A Two, for those in which two people sail on board, and the J80 monotypes will also compete.

Among those registered are names such as Víctor Carrión and Ana Sardiña with the Bon III, winners of the Rías Baixas Circuit last year; El Cansino by Nano Yáñez and Ignacio Sánchez; the local Ferralemes by Jaime García, or the Fend la Bise by Jean Claude Sarrade and André Lopes. A large part of the J80 fleet that usually competes in Baiona will not be missing either, so there is no doubt that victory will be more than disputed.

Although everything will depend on the weather conditions that occur tomorrow, the Regatta Committee initially plans to give a single start in the bay of Baiona that will take the fleet to complete a route of some 26.2 miles through the Vigo estuary and near the Cíes Islands, before heading back to the bay. The time it takes for the fleet to complete the regatta will depend on the wind, and for the moment everything indicates that Eolo will blow with a soft intensity.

In addition to the Galician title, the Baiona event will also be the last of the season scoring for the Rías Baixas Dos Circuit. After the Vuelta a Cíes, Vuelta a Barbanza, Faro de Corrubedo Grand Trophy and the Paco Alvariñas Memorial events, the winners of the prestigious circuit will be announced tomorrow, Saturday, at the Galician Championship for the class.

Once the test is over, the awards ceremony will be held at 8:00 p.m. at the Monte Real Club de Yates.

Nearly a hundred elderly and disabled people navigate thanks to the Amaromar initiative

  • The fourth edition of the Amar o mar program has brought together, between yesterday and today, almost a hundred participants from nursing homes and public centers for people with disabilities in Redondela, Ourense and Lugo.
  • It is an initiative that the Baionese club is launching again in collaboration with the Department of Social Policy
  • José Ignacio Martínez, Head of the Xunta’s Dependency and Personal Autonomy Service; Concepción Vara, councilor for Social Services, Mobility and Accessibility of the Baiona City Council, and Óscar Martínez, deputy mayor of Baiona, today accompanied the participants in the program during their visit to the MRCYB
  • With this initiative, the Monte Real Yacht Club reaffirms its commitment to bring the sea closer to all those people for whom it can lead to an improvement in their quality of life

Nearly a hundred participants in the Amar o mar program gathered yesterday, Wednesday, and this morning in Baiona to enjoy an initiative with which the Ministry of Social Policy and the Monte Real Yacht Club try to bring the sea closer to people elderly and disabled.

In this fourth edition of Amar o mar there were a total of 96 participants, including users and monitors from the centres, who were able to enjoy a fun and recreational day. The group that has participated in these two days of the program has been made up of older people from the Nosa Señora dos Milagres de Barbadás residences, in Ourense, and As Gándaras, in Lugo, and from the Redondela Center for Disabled Persons (CAPD ), which is also part of the annual program of the MRCYB Adapted Sailing School. The truth is that some of the CAPD students who participated in this initiative had previously taken sailing courses at the Baionese club.

The activity, which was born in 2016 with the aim of helping users of public residences in the interior of Galicia to maintain an adequate level of social and personal well-being, has once again been very well received this year and today it has had the support and the presence of José Ignacio Martínez, Head of the Xunta’s Dependency and Personal Autonomy Service; Concepción Vara, councilor for Social Services, Mobility and Accessibility of the Baiona City Council, and Óscar Martínez, deputy mayor of Baiona. The three have been accompanied by the president and vice president of the club, José Luis Álvarez and Alejandro Retolaza.

After the visit to the facilities of the Baionese club, around 12:30 p.m. the participants of Amar o mar went to the pontoons to embark and sail through the bay to the vicinity of the Cíes Islands, thus approaching the nautical world in direct contact with the sea. The program also included a meal on board before returning to land.

With this initiative, Monte Real reaffirms its commitment to the fight for social integration. For years the club has collaborated with the administration in programs such as the one carried out today and also has its own program of courses at the Adapted Sailing School, aimed at offering the possibility of enjoying sailing to people with functional diversity from different associations in Galicia.
