Among the most important events, it is worth highlighting the Spanish Championship of the J80 class , which the Baionese club will organize by delegation of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation at the end of April.

Another novelty of the Baiona club for this new year is the return of the Baiona Angra Atlantic Race , the oceanic regatta that Monte Real promoted by the hand of the Angra Iate Clube in 2016 and that in July 2018 will experience its second edition. The competition scheme will be the same, with more than 1,700 miles of route divided into two tests, one going between Baiona and Angra do Heroismo (Ilha Terceira – Açores) and a second and last one back to Baiona.
