· The boat skippered by Javier de la Gándara won once again in all the tests held this Saturday in the bay of Baiona
· The Miudo by Storax and the Virazón complete, together with the Okofen, the provisional podium of the competition organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates
Two new boats joined the J80 fleet of the J80 Class Winter League in Baiona on this third day, the Marías and the Náutico Cormorán
A great regatera day this Saturday in Baiona with the celebration of the third stage of the J80 Class Winter League, in which Okofen continues to command forcefully.
The sailboat skippered by Javier de la Gándara consolidated its leadership in the competition organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates after winning the three races held this afternoon, moving it even further away from its rivals.
Neither the shifty wind, which made navigation difficult and forced a change of route, nor the good work of some crews, who managed to overcome it at times, prevented Okofen from winning another day.
Miudo by Storax, skippered on this occasion by Rui Ramada, and Manuel María Cunha’s Marías, who joined the Baiona J80 competition this Saturday, were their most direct competitors. They managed to get ahead in certain sections of the regatta, but De la Gándara’s mastery in the last miles of each race allowed him to leave them behind him to always cross the finish line first.
Three new heats for the classification of the J80 Class Winter League and three new victories for Okofen, which consolidates its leadership, already separated by 18 points from the rest of the boats. Following in the classification are Miudo by Storax and Virazón de Miguel Lago, skippered this Saturday by Javier Rey. They are second and third on the provisional podium, with 21 and 28 points respectively, and would get the silver and bronze of the trophy if they maintain their good results.
Further down in the classification, the same positions with which they arrived from the previous day were Enrique Porto’s Ferralemes, Fernándo Yáñez’s Cansino and Bernardo Macedo’s Mondo, fourth, fifth and sixth respectively.
In the rest of the positions there were changes. Luis de Mira’s Namasté rose from ninth to seventh place, from which Juan Luis Tuero’s Luna Nueva fell. The girls from Pazo de Cea, led by María Campos, remain in eighth, and close the classification is Manuel María Cunha’s Marías, who haggled for the first time today in the Winter League; Willy Caamaño’s Alumisel, which did not go out into the water today; and the Náutico Cormorán of Francisco Javier Martínez, who disputed his first regatta in the J80 trophy this Saturday.
After the celebration of this third stage, the competition organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates has only three days left to finish and see who will win this new edition of the J80 Class Winter League. The next regattas will be held within fifteen days, on Saturday, February 25; and the two final days on Saturday 11 and 25 March.
