Despite the fact that the wind was harsh in the first few minutes, forcing a postponement that delayed the scheduled departure time by up to forty minutes, once the fleet left the Bay of Baiona heading for Camouco, everything unfolded with great agility. The ascent to Ons was very fast and the descent back, except for a momentary drop in the wind, was a true street runner.

Salseiro by Manuel Blanco (RCN A Coruña), Deep Blue by Vicente Cid (RCN Vigo), Burla Negra by Juan José Martínez (CN Castrelo), Fend la Bise by Jean Claude Sarrade (MRCYB) and Unus by Luis García Trigo (MRCYB) were the fastest throughout the race, always in the lead and well ahead of the rest of the fleet.

They were the fastest to complete the distance but they did not achieve the first position in the classification affected by the compensation of times, which favored the Dufour 34 Deep Blue and Burla Negra, both from the nautical company from Vigo, first and second in the provisional classification.

In third position is the Fend la Bise of Jean Claude Sarrade, of the Monte Real Club de Yates, another of the sailboats that will reach the final day with the possibility of making a podium if it manages to embroider the barlosotas, which everything indicates that they will be very close.

After the conclusion of this second day of the coastal route, only the last two tests of the competition remain to be held, which will be much more technical, with windward-leeward routes between buoys.

The skipper of the Magical, Julio Rodríguez, predicts a very disputed and exciting final, as he assures that the crossing to the Corcubión rock was. “We disputed a very tough regatta with very strong rivals, with a lot of wind and a lot of waves. It was the first one we did with the Magical, and it has proven to be a very fast boat that can defend well the high rating it has”, assured the leader of the Swan 42, who also explained that they were about to pass the Yess Too, but that a spy break when they were arriving in Cíes prevented them from overtaking the Portuguese.

Once the competition is over on Sunday morning, the Monte Real Club de Yates, organizer of the competition, will host the awards ceremony for the winners at its facilities. It will be attended by the president and commodore of the club, José Luis Álvarez and Ignacio Sánchez Otaegui; and various representatives of Banco Sabadell, sponsor of the event.
