After the success achieved last year with the participation of more than 200 people and more than 5,000 euros raised for the Adapted Sailing School for people with disabilities, Baiona will once again host a new edition of the Solidarity Vertiathlon , an event organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club and the Baiona Council with the sponsorship of Verti Seguros and the collaboration of the Galician Triathlon Federation .

More than 200 people from different parts of Galicia participated in the last edition of the Solidarity Vertiathlon, which allowed them to raise, with their registration fees, nearly five thousand four hundred euros. The winners were Jacobo Crego, from the Vedra Olympian, in the men’s absolute category; and her clubmate, Aida García, in the women’s category.
