Baiona, October 12, 2017.- The regattas return to Baiona this weekend thanks to the AXA J80 Autumn League, a competition organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates and sponsored by AXA Seguros with which the Baiona club puts the end of its season sailing of 2017.

The trophy, intended exclusively for the J80 monotypes, will be played in a league format over four days, on October 14 and 28 and November 12 and 25. Sailing as a fleet and competing in real time, the participating sailboats will compete in a maximum of three tests per day. They will be windward/leeward courses, with two beats and two sterns, which the jacks must complete in a maximum of 75 minutes, and crossing the finish line within 10 minutes of the entry of the first boat, so as not to be disqualified.

All the regattas will be held inside the bay of Baiona, animating the autumn weekends of the residents and visitors of the Galician fishing village, who will be able to enjoy the sailboat competition from the surrounding promenades, sandbanks and mountains.

Among the participants will be the three boats that managed to get on the podium in the previous edition. We will see Okofen, led and skippered by Javier de la Gándara, who won the victory last year together with Diego Fernández, Hugo Ferreiro and Jaime de la Gándara. Luis de Mira’s Namasté and Francisca Barros’s Miudo, who finished second and third in 2016, will also fight for the title. The fleet will be completed by other J80s from the Monte Real Club de Yates and several more one-designs from Coruña and Vigo.

Once the competition is over with the celebration of the last day on November 25, the Monte Real Club de Yates will host in its facilities the awards ceremony for the winners of the AXA J80 Autumn League, within the framework of a dinner at which will be attended by all the sailors and members of the regatta committee, as well as those responsible for the club and AXA Seguros, the company that sponsors the trophy.

The AXA Seguros boat manned by students from the Monte Real Adapted Sailing School for people with disabilities received a special mention

Baiona, September 3, 2017.- This afternoon the thirty-second edition of the Prince of Asturias Trophy, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates and the Escuela Naval Militar, and held over the last three days, concluded in Baiona.

With more than 80 boats in the running, the competition, one of the most prestigious on the Spanish nautical scene, managed to put on a show in the Rías Baixas despite the lack of wind that was the protagonist of the last two days and forced the suspension of some of the planned tests.

In the competition of the big boats, in which the very tight classification of the previous day announced a very exciting dispute, not even a test could be held. The wind appeared and disappeared, rolled continuously and could not stabilize at any time. Shortly before the deadline set for the end of the starts, the regatta committee decided to raise annulment, so the provisional podiums became definitive.

In the Óptica Studio ORC 1 class , the crew of the Pairo 8 , from the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, led by the Olympian Jordi Xammar, was the winner of the trophy. He took the win beating José Carlos Prista ‘s Xekmatt, from the Lisbon Naval Association; and the April of Jorge and Luis Pérez Canal, of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, who were second and third respectively.

In the Aceites Abril ORC 2 class , the Prince’s grand prize went to Sanxenxo at the hands of Willy Alonso, who placed the Sum Innovation at the top of the classification. Delmar Conde’s Porto de Aveiro , from the Boca de Barra Yacht Club; and the Atlantic MBA of Rui Ramada, from Monte Real, completed the podium.

The Vigo and Baiona clubs took home the prizes for the Gadis ORC 3 class . For the nautical man from Vigo, the first went, in which Luis Suárez’s Maracaná engraved his name; and in Monte Real the second and third were left, by Luis Manuel García’s Unus and Jean Claude Sarrade’s Fend la Bise .

Luckier than ORC’s 1, 2 and 3 was the fleet of the Volvo Autesa ORC 4 and Martin Miller ORC Open classes, because although they took a long time to start, they were able to take advantage of a breeze to compete in a 7-mile coastal course on this last day.

Francisco Javier Rey’s Con Caalma , from the Monte Real Yacht Club; and Ay Carmela of Juan Martínez Pazó, from the Liceo Marítimo de Bouzas, won the Volvo Autesa ORC 4 class.

In the Martin Miller ORC Open class , the Jandrocho Team led by Roberto Reboredo, from San Adrián de Cobres, beat Bombastic led by César Fernández Casqueiro, from Monte Real; and the Villain of the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña, skippered by Luis Bodelón.

The podium of the Storax Clásicos class was made up as follows: Luis Molina’s Blue Moon (RCN Coruña) was the winner, and Carlos Romero’s Pingüino Uno (CM Canido) and José Manuel Cores’s Belisa (AGABACE) were second and third.

In the 6 meters dispute, the results were defined by the test held on Saturday, because although the fleet went out into the water and was able to start a task, the lack of wind forced the regatta to be suspended after the first stern.

In the competition of 6 meters classic the victory was taken by Capriche by Íñigo Echenique, from the Canido Maritime Club; and in the 6 meters he won the Maybe by Luis Martín Cabiedes, from the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo, who also won the trophy of the 6m pool combined classification . El Bribón Movistar del Rey Juan Carlos, in which he sailed accompanied by Pedro Campos, came second.

In the Solventis J80 class , Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen , from Monte Real, started as the favorite and did not disappoint. He was the winner of this thirty-second edition of the Príncipe and also took home the Mary Woodward Special Award for the best J80 boat of the season. Among the rest of the fleet there were two other outstanding ships, the Marina Coruña – Coast by Pablo Martínez (RCN Coruña) and the Miudo de Francisca Barros (MRCYB), who in addition to acting as strong rivals of De la Gándara on the water, won the second and third prizes of the trophy.

King Juan Carlos was in charge of presenting the award to the winning crew of the HELLO! Ladies Cup, the exclusively female competition held within the framework of the Prince of Asturias Trophy and which brings together 36 of the best patron saints in Spain. The boat Hello! , from the BB Douro club, skippered by Marta Ramada climbed to the top of the podium, leaving the second position for the Monte Real Hello Fashion Monthly , skippered by Rosalía Martínez and with a crew of students from the organizing club’s Sailing School .

In the distribution of prizes, which was chaired by the King Emeritus, an honorable mention was also given to the ship AXA Seguros , crewed by students from the Juan María de Nigrán Center for people with intellectual disabilities. They are a group of boys who attend, throughout the year, the Monte Real Adapted Sailing School and who participated, for the third consecutive year, in the Prince of Asturias Trophy. The initiative has the support of the Ministry of Social Policy.

In addition, the Conde de Barcelona Don Juan de Borbón Prize was awarded to the best boat with a Portuguese crew , which was won by the Porto de Aveiro of the Club Náutico Boca de Barra, skippered by Delmar Conde.
