Fifty children between the ages of 7 and 18 will haggle this weekend in the Baitra Social League Final, a competition organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates that will include several regattas in the bay of Baiona.

The tests, in which young sailors from the Optimist and 420 classes will compete, will be held on Saturday from one in the afternoon and on Sunday from half past eleven in the morning. They will be routes between buoys, placed in the shape of a trapezoid, in a regatta field that can be seen both from the peninsula of the Parador Nacional de Baiona and from the closest sandbanks.

To the Optimist and 420, used to training and competitions, will be added, on this occasion, a group of Omegas in which children who are just starting out in the world of sailing will sail. It is an initiative with which those responsible for the Monte Real Sailing School seek to offer the smallest the opportunity to live the experience of a regatta from within.

After finishing the last tests in the water, on Sunday at noon, the competition will move to the mainland to celebrate the award ceremony for the winners, in which the manager of Baitra, Juan Carlos González, will participate as sponsor of the event; and several representatives of the Baiona city council and the board of directors of Monte Real.

The Final of the Social League marks the closing of the 2016-2017 season of the MRCYB Sailing School and marks the beginning of the club’s summer program, which includes multiple activities for all types of audiences, both sports and leisure.

For the little ones, Monte Real also has light sailing courses scheduled during the months of July and August, in the morning or afternoon. And for the older ones, cruising sailing courses. The club also organizes getaways to the Cíes Islands from Baiona, with which to spend a whole day sailing; and sunsets on a sailboat, with which to enjoy the sunset aboard one of the club’s boats.
