This Saturday the fourth and final round of the AXA J80 Autumn League will be held in Baiona, which has been held since last October in the waters of the Bay of Baiona under the organization of the Monte Real Club de Yates and sponsored by AXA Insurance.

At the decisive assault, the Maija crew, led by José Luis Pérez, is the one that arrives with the most ballots in hand to win the final victory. It has been, without a doubt, the most regular J80 in the entire fleet, and its good results have allowed it to finish as leader in two of the three days held so far.

At a distance of 5 points from its most direct rival and with the more than possible entry into play of a discard if the three scheduled tests are held, Maija should not have it very difficult to achieve championship gold.

El Cansino , skippered by Fernando Yáñez, is the J80 that has the best chance of stopping him. It is one of the J80 that has done the best throughout the Monte Real league and another contender for the title.

In the triad of possible winners, we must also fit the Luna Nueva of the Asturian Juan Luis Tuero, who has managed to sign, so far this championship, several victories in the different tests. It is, without a doubt, another of the boats to take into account for the final day.

A little further down the ranking are Luis de Mira’s Namasté and Santiago Estévez’s Spaco . Both have managed to stay in the “Top 5” for several days and their aspiration in these last races will be to sign the best possible results to sneak into the winners’ podium.

The final of the AXA J80 Autumn League will begin, as usual, at three in the afternoon inside the Bay of Baiona. The forecast is to dispute three regattas and, once the competition is over on the water, continue the closing of the league on land, with the celebration of a dinner and the delivery of prizes to the winners.
