· The Fend la Bise made a triplet by also winning the cup of the III Rafael Olmedo Memorial and the gold of the class A Two-1 of the Inserimos Trophy

· In class A Two-2 the winner was Ay Carmela de Martínez y Almeida, and in the J80 dispute Cansino de Yáñez y Martín prevailed.

Aboard the Fend la Bise, Jean Claude Sarrade and André Amorín became the new Galician Two-handed Champions this weekend after winning the competition organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club by delegation of the Galician Sailing Federation.

Sarrade, who came to the regatta with aspirations to revalidate his title as Galician Solitary Champion, was forced at the last minute to look for a crew member to be able to compete in A Two, since the Solitary prize was not disputed due to lack of boats . The experienced skipper put Amorín on his Fend la Bise and together, wearing the organizing club’s pendant, they achieved victory in the competition sponsored by Inserimos Energía.

They also took the cup of the III Rafael Olmedo Memorial and they also won the gold of class A Two-1, leaving the silver to another regular on the sailing podiums in Galicia, the Bosch Service Solutions of the Maritime Club of Canido. With Ramón Ojea at the wheel and Pablo Franco completing the crew, the Bosch was in second position throughout the regatta, only surpassed by the Gaiás Clinic, which was unbeatable in real time.

The Náutico de Portosín boat, manned by José María Peinó and Fernando Míguez, was the leader from the start and was the fastest to complete the 35.8-mile round trip between the bay of Baiona and the island of Ons. It took him a little over five and a half hours to cross the finish line and he won in real time, but the time compensation made him fall to eighth position. Third place in class A Two-1 went to Enrique Porto’s Ferralemes and Damián Puebla, a J80 from the Monte Real Club de Yates.

In class A Two-2, the podium was shared between Vigo and Baiona. The gold went to the Ay Carmela of the Liceo Marítimo de Bouzas, in which Juan Martínez and Rafael Martínez-Almeida sailed hand in hand. The silver went to Vicente Cid and Javier Miguez aboard the Deep Blue of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, and Mariano Dios and Luis Rodríguez, who sailed on the Abal Abogados-Lagar de Pintos-Fanautic, inscribed their name on the bronze with a pendant of Mount Royal.

In the real-time competition of the J80 monotypes, the fastest boat, with 6 hours of navigation, was the Cansino of Fernándo Yáñez and Flavio Martín. Javier Rey and Juan Lago’s Virazón crossed the finish line three minutes after Cansino and finished second, and third position went to Enrique Porto and Damián Puebla’s Ferralemes, who entered thirteen minutes after the first.

The Galician Solo and Two-handed Championship, which the Monte Real Yacht Club organized for the sixth consecutive year by delegation of the Galician Sailing Federation, was held in the Rías Baixas with very good sailing conditions. The fleet traveled the almost 36 round trip miles that separate the Bay of Baiona and the Camouco lighthouse with a wind between 12 and 24 knots
