Tomorrow, Saturday, the last round of the J80 Winter League will be held, which the Monte Real Club de Yates has been organizing for the one-design fleet since January.

Starting at three in the afternoon, the Bay of Baiona will be the scene of a new dispute between the J80 fleet for a place on the winners’ podium. There will be three new tests that will close the scoreboard and define the final classification.

The Okofen of Javier de la Gándara, the Cansino of Fernando Yáñez and the Namasté of Luis de Mira are the sailboats with the most options to sneak into the final podium, since they currently occupy the three positions of honor.

Okofen , with 7 points and the usual good work of De la Gándara, has many possibilities to win the gold of the competition, since, in addition, the margin of 6 points that he managed to get from his most direct rivals gives him some peace of mind .

Cansino and Namasté , very regular and with good performances throughout the league, remain tied on 13 points in second and third place respectively, and are the ones with the best chance, together with Okofen , of closing the league by ensuring a trophy.

In the middle part of the classification everything is very open since there are many jacks grouped in a very narrow point band. Carlos Hernández’s Miudo is fourth with 18 points, followed by Bernardo Macedo’s Mondo , Juan Luis Tuero’s Luna Nueva and María Campos’ Pazo de Cea with 20, 21 and 22 points respectively.

With this panorama in the provisional classification tomorrow, Saturday, the last day will be held with a forecast of good wind to celebrate the three final tests. At the end in the water, the awards ceremony on land and a seafood dinner for the participants.
