The athletes from the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, Jorge Enríquez and Guillermo Núñez, 16 years old, finally won the Baitra Children’s Sailing Trophy, played this weekend in Baiona.

The competition, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates with the sponsorship of Baitra Accesorios Navales, had its second and last day of tests scheduled for this Sunday, but the absence of wind in the bay of Baiona forced the regatta committee to suspend the sleeves planned.

After more than two hours of waiting in the water, the sailboats returned to land and the scores of the two regattas held on the opening day of Saturday served to design the final general classification of the championship.

In the 420 class, the Real Club Náutico de Vigo placed two of its crews at the top of the podium. In sub-19, Carlota Hernández and Ana Carrasco took the gold; and Jorge Enríquez and Guillermo Núñez, in addition to winning in the sub-17 category, were winners of the general classification of the class. With very fast departures and taking certain risks in navigation tactics, these two 15-year-old athletes continue to advance steadily in the 420 class, in which they have not been sailing for even a year.

The second and third places were shared by athletes from the Vigo yacht club and the Baiona yacht club. In sub-17 silver and bronze went, respectively, to the teams formed by Alejandro Pérez Canal and Enrique Lagos, from the Real Club Nautico de Vigo; and Rosalía Martínez and Sandra Trigo, from Monte Real. In sub-19, Elena Molares and Enma Arana occupied the second and third position; and Yago González and Jorge González, all wearing the organizing club’s pendant.

In the Optimist competition, Adriana Pérez Canal, from the Club Marítimo de Canido, was the real star of the trophy. This little great sailor, the daughter of an old acquaintance of sailing in Galicia such as Luis Pérez Canal, owner and skipper of the Aceites Abril, stood on the podium up to three times. She received gold in her category (Optimist A), the award for the best female Optimist sailor and the award for overall winner of the class.

The Real Club Náutico de Vigo, the Monte Real Club de Yates and the Portuguese club We Do Sailing, from Vila Nova de Gaia shared the rest of the distinctions. In Optimist A, in addition to Adriana Pérez Canal, the winners were Paula da Rocha and Diogo Lima; in Optimist B, the podium was made up of Liang Jane García, Rita Pinto and Helena Pérez Canal; and in Optimist C, Tiago Vecino, Pablo Marquina and Inés Ameneiro took gold, silver and bronze respectively.

With this new edition of the Baitra Trophy, the Monte Real Club de Yates and Baitra Accesorios Navales reaffirmed their commitment to children’s sailing, which they have been supporting jointly for several years now. The next event on the sports calendar of the Baion club is the Galician Solitaire and Two-Handed Championship – III Rafael Olmedo Memorial, which will be held on June 3.
