Baiona, June 13, 2015.- Spectacular duel in the water, from the beginning of the race, between two of the contenders for the podium of the Galician Solitary and Two-handed Championship, which will be held this weekend in the Rías Baixas, organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club of Bayonne.

The U47 of José María Peinó and José Manuel Pérez, and the Pairo 8 of Luis Bugallo and Gerardo Prego, are fighting for first place in the A Two category. In the solo category, Jesús Pintos, who started as the favourite, is living up to expectations and remains the leader in real time aboard the Victoria. In J80, the good work of Laureano Wizner and Alfonso Crespo placed Mi Moneda as the favorite to win the class.

The Galician Solitaire and Two-Handed Championship – I Rafael Olmedo Memorial began promptly at 11 in the morning in the bay of Baiona, where a route of more than 52 miles was started. Once the clearance was overcome, the boats hoisted spinnakers and sailed with a tailwind at quite a speed through the interior of the Parque Natural de las Atlánticas to the Ter, on the Island of Arousa, where the first ones turned around after two in the afternoon. At this time the boats continue towards the Cíes, where the finish line is set.

The final classification will be known, predictably, this morning, and tomorrow, Sunday, at one in the afternoon, the awards ceremony will be held at the facilities of the Monte Real Yacht Club.
