The Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona will experience a great sports season in 2022, with competition, fun and entertainment as the main ingredients.
The most outstanding event on its calendar is, without a doubt, the celebration, next May, of the prestigious 52 SUPER SERIES , one of the most important nautical events in the world, considered the “Formula 1 of the sea” . From May 23 to 28, between 10 and 12 teams of more than 8 nationalities with sailors from 5 continents will compete in the Rías Baixas aboard unique boats with the most cutting-edge technology.
Another of the events that will focus the attention of sailing lovers in Galicia will be the Spanish Championship of the J80 class , which will be held in Baiona from September 15 to 18. The most important event of the 8 meters at a national level returns to Baiona four years after having been organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates, which owns the most important fleet of these monotypes in the northwest of the peninsula.
The club chaired by José Luis Álvarez also repeats, in this case for the eleventh consecutive year, in the organization of the Galician A Two Championship , which on June 11 will bring together some of the most intrepid sailors in the community to prove their worth with crews reduced to the maximum.
In 2022, the club’s four great classics will also return: the Prince of Asturias Trophy , which will once again include the delivery of the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards ; the Conde de Gondomar Trophy , with the legendary climb of almost 100 miles to Carrumeiro Chico; the Repsol Trophy , during the first weekend of May; and the Comunica Trophy , at the end of April.
There will also be 11 exclusive competition days for the J80, which will be divided into two leagues: the Baitra Winter League , from January to April; and the Fall League , from October to December.
After the successful participation of the previous edition, Monte Real will repeat the Route through the Rías Baixas , a non-competitive journey destined to travel the Camino de Santiago by sea and win the Jubilee. And this year, as a novelty, Monte Real will also organize a Laser class qualifier.
It will clearly be an intense year for the club from Baiona, in which, in addition to competition, fun and spectacle, there will also be a place for solidarity and social responsibility actions, most of them promoted through its School Sailing Adapted .
Monte Real will reaffirm, once again, its social commitment to people with disabilities, offering, throughout the year, courses and activities aimed at promoting their inclusion and allowing them to navigate under equal conditions. Since it was launched a decade ago, this section of the club has only grown, and what was initially limited to people with different disabilities (physical, sensory, intellectual or mental) has been extended to people elderly, children in care, children with behavior problems and women victims of gender violence.
The commitment to women will be another of the axes of the 2022 season of Monte Real, with various proposals to promote their participation in competitions and events. In addition, the club will once again organize the Final of the National Women’s Sailing League , which will be held next fall.
Light sailing and cruising courses within the framework of the MRCYB Sailing School , coaching and team building activities for groups and companies, and talks and clinics for sailors are other proposals offered by the Monte Real Yacht Club in what will be its first year as a member of the International Council of Yacht Clubs (ICOYC) , of which it has been a member since last December along with the 44 most prestigious clubs in the world.
