Sailing weekend in Baiona with the Banco Sabadell Class J80 Trophy

· The one-design competition organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club celebrates its second day of tests this Saturday in the bay of Baiona

· The sailor from Vigo Javier de la Gándara will try to maintain the leadership of the competition after his victory on the opening day aboard the Okofen

Baiona will be the scene this Saturday of a new day of sailing at the hands of the Banco Sabadell Trophy, a competition organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates exclusively for the J80 monotypes, one of the fastest growing boats in Spanish territory in the last years.

The tests, which will give continuity to those that opened the championship a fortnight ago, will be held from three in the afternoon in the waters of the interior of the bay, where the sun is expected to shine and temperatures that are more than pleasant for this time of year.

The participating boats will compete, competing in real time, on several windward-leeward routes in a maximum of three tests that can be followed from the sandbanks that surround the bay, as well as from the Monte Boi promenade, in the Parador Nacional area.

Skippered by Javier de la Gándara from Vigo, Okofen will try to maintain the leadership of the competition after its victory on the opening day, where the crew led by the historic ocean sailor achieved two first places and one second, and placed at the top of the general classification.

Just two points away from the team from Vigo are the Portuguese from Miudo, with Pedro Paula Pinto in the lead. Despite having completed the regattas of the first stage with very good performance, they were not the ones to win the provisional gold, for which they will fight again this Saturday.

A little further down the ranking, although separated by more than 5 points from Okofen and Miudo, are Pazo de Cea, skippered by Javier Rey; and the Namaste by Luis de Mira.

The Banco Sabadell Class J80 Trophy will put the sporting note on the All Saints Bridge in Baiona, where the good weather forecasts herald a weekend with a large influx of tourists and visitors.
