Everything is ready in Baiona for the celebration of a new edition of the Prince of Asturias Trophy, one of the most prestigious regattas on the Spanish nautical scene, which celebrates its 29th anniversary this year.

The regatta will take place on September 5, 6 and 7 in the waters of the Bay of Baiona and the Vigo estuary, organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club and the Naval Military School of Marin , with the collaboration of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation and the Galician Sailing Federation .

The Trophy will include, on the different days of competition, various sporting events depending on the class of boats. On Friday the 5th , starting at 3:55 p.m., the ORCs, J80s and Ladies will compete in various windward/leeward (routes between buoys), while the Specials and Classics rest.

On Saturday the 6th , all the boats will go to sea. Starting at 11:55, the ORCs, J80s and Ladies will compete, and at 12:25, the Classics and Specials. While the former fight for the podium in windward / leeward, the latter must complete a coastal course.

On Sunday the 7th , the scheme of the previous day is repeated in terms of the design of the tests (windward/leeward for ORC, J80 and Ladies Cup; and coastal route for Specials and Classics), but with a change in the schedules. Everyone will hear the starting honk at the same time, at 11:55.

In addition to the traditional sporting events, the program for the XXIX Prince of Asturias Trophy includes many other activities, such as breakfasts, meetings, talks, recordings of programs, tastings, parties and fireworks.

In short, it will be three days of meetings for the best crews in Spain and Portugal, which will become a reality thanks to the work of nearly 100 people and the sponsorship of Bodegas Terras Gauda, Turismo Rías Baixas, Plymouth, Storax, Lunic, Solventis, Coca Cola, Watching Man, Estrella Galicia and Gadis , along with many other collaborating companies.

Within the framework of the XXIX Prince of Asturias Trophy, the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards will also be presented at a gala to be held on Saturday the 6th starting at 8:00 p.m. at the Monte Real Yacht Club.

These prestigious awards, which recognize the work of people and institutions in favor of the sailing world, will go this year to the Solventis and Movistar boats, the MAPFRE Challenge , the production company A Contracorriente Films and the ocean sailor Alex Pella .
