Cascais Naval Club – MRCYB. Correspondence agreement between clubs

The Monte Real Club de Yates and the Clube Naval de Cascais sign a correspondence agreement between clubs. Among other objectives are to promote international tourism and the organization of sports competitions.

The Commodore of the Monte Real Yacht Club of Bayonne, Miguel Lago, and the President of the Cascais Naval Club, Gonçalo Esteves, were in charge of ratifying the correspondence agreement established between both clubs with the aim of strengthening relations.

In addition to a moderate use of the facilities by both groups, the agreement will promote joint actions related to international nautical tourism between Portugal and Spain and the organization of sports competitions. It will also seek to coordinate actions between the sailing schools of both clubs, such as joint training or exchanges.

The Clube Naval de Cascais is one of the most traditional yacht clubs in the neighboring country. Since its birth in 1938, it has assumed a relevant role in the development of nautical sports in Portugal, especially sailing. Its school, from which great figures in Portuguese nautical life have emerged, has been in operation since 1950, offering all kinds of activities for both children and adults.

The club also organized historic sporting events such as the 2007 Sailing World Championship, the Cascais Sailing in 2010, the inaugural event of the 2011 Copa America de Vela, the Dragon Winter Series or the Audi Med Cup. Important competitions such as the 1970 Finn Gold Cup, the Star Class European Championship in 1995, or the Laser Class Championship in 1997 are also written on the honor roll of the Portuguese club.
