· The Monte Real Club de Yates adds this year a new race starting in the Pontevedra estuary to the trophy with which it inaugurates the cruise season
· The participating sailboats will be able to choose the starting point from Combarro or Vigo and will converge in Baiona as the end point of the route
· The one-day regatta will be held on Saturday from noon and the awards ceremony will be held in the afternoon at Monte Real
The Monte Real Club de Yates inaugurates its 2022 cruise season this Saturday with the Comunica Trophy, which this year is split to include two different regattas, one from the Pontevedra estuary and the other from the Vigo estuary.
The participating boats will be able to choose between Combarro and Vigo as the starting point, but both options will converge at an intermediate point of the route and will coincide in the arrival, which will be located in the same place for the entire fleet.
The earliest test will be Combarro – Baiona, with departure scheduled for twelve noon near the Marina Combarro, which collaborates with Monte Real in organizing the event. From the coast of the picturesque town of Pontevedra, the sailboats will have a route of about 22 nautical miles ahead of them.
The sailboats that choose Vigo as a starting point will do less travel, for which it is estimated that it will be approximately 15 miles of journey. This test design, scheduled to leave at two in the afternoon from the vicinity of the port of Vigo, is the one that has traditionally been disputed thanks to the collaboration of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo.
If the regatta committee’s calculations are met, there will come a point where the sailboats coming through the Pontevedra estuary and those sailing through the Vigo estuary will group together, predictably around the Cíes Islands area. From there, the fleet will head to the same finish, near Baiona, and it will be at the Monte Real Club de Yates where the awards ceremony will be held starting at seven in the afternoon.
Cruisers, Open class sailboats, and J80 and Figaros monotypes may participate in the regatta. If there are enough registered (there must be a minimum of 6 to form a class), an A2 category will also be created for those teams formed only by a skipper and a crew member.
In the last edition, in which more than 40 boats from Spain and Portugal participated, the winners were Rui Ramada’s Yess Racing (ORC 1-2), Vicente Cid’s Deep Blue (ORC 3-4), Víctor’s Nahela Manuel Álvarez (ORC Open) and the Bon III of Víctor Carrión and Horacio Pequeno (A2). In monotypes, the victory of the Fígaros went to Serralleiras de Paula Rey and in J80 it was won by Maija de José Luis Pérez.

· The club from Baiona is preparing to launch a sports season with competition, fun and entertainment as the main ingredients
· The arrival next May in Baiona of the prestigious 52 SUPER SERIES will undoubtedly be the nautical event of the year in Galicia
· Monte Real will also organize the J80 Spanish Championship and the Galician Two-Handed Championship in 2022
· The club’s four classics also return: the Príncipe de Asturias Trophy, the Conde de Gondomar Trophy, the Repsol Trophy and the Comunica Trophy
The Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona is finalizing the details to start, in just a few days, its 2022 sports season, in which competition, fun and entertainment will be the main ingredients.
The most outstanding event on its calendar is, without a doubt, the celebration, next May, of the prestigious 52 SUPER SERIES , one of the most important nautical events in the world, considered the “Formula 1 of the sea” . From May 23 to 28, between 10 and 12 teams of more than 8 nationalities with sailors from 5 continents will compete in the Rías Baixas aboard unique boats with the most cutting-edge technology.
Another of the events that will focus the attention of sailing lovers in Galicia will be the Spanish Championship of the J80 class , which will be held in Baiona from September 15 to 18. The most important event of the 8 meters at a national level returns to Baiona four years after having been organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates, which owns the most important fleet of these monotypes in the northwest of the peninsula.
The club chaired by José Luis Álvarez also repeats, in this case for the eleventh consecutive year, in the organization of the Galician A Two Championship , which on June 11 will bring together some of the most intrepid sailors in the community to prove their worth with crews reduced to the maximum.
In 2022, the club’s four great classics will also return: the Prince of Asturias Trophy , which will once again include the delivery of the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards ; the Conde de Gondomar Trophy , with the legendary climb of almost 100 miles to Carrumeiro Chico; the Repsol Trophy , during the first weekend of May; and the Comunica Trophy , at the end of April.
There will also be 11 exclusive competition days for the J80, which will be divided into two leagues: the Baitra Winter League , from January to April; and the Fall League , from October to December.
After the successful participation of the previous edition, Monte Real will repeat the Route through the Rías Baixas , a non-competitive journey destined to travel the Camino de Santiago by sea and win the Jubilee. And this year, as a novelty, Monte Real will also organize a Laser class qualifier.
It will clearly be an intense year for the club from Baiona, in which, in addition to competition, fun and spectacle, there will also be a place for solidarity and social responsibility actions, most of them promoted through its School Sailing Adapted .
Monte Real will reaffirm, once again, its social commitment to people with disabilities, offering, throughout the year, courses and activities aimed at promoting their inclusion and allowing them to navigate under equal conditions. Since it was launched a decade ago, this section of the club has only grown, and what was initially limited to people with different disabilities (physical, sensory, intellectual or mental) has been extended to people elderly, children in care, children with behavior problems and women victims of gender violence.
The commitment to women will be another of the axes of the 2022 season of Monte Real, with various proposals to promote their participation in competitions and events. In addition, the club will once again organize the Final of the National Women’s Sailing League , which will be held next fall.
Light sailing and cruising courses within the framework of the MRCYB Sailing School , coaching and team building activities for groups and companies, and talks and clinics for sailors are other proposals offered by the Monte Real Yacht Club in what will be its first year as a member of the International Council of Yacht Clubs (ICOYC) , of which it has been a member since last December along with the 44 most prestigious clubs in the world.

40 boats will compete this Saturday in a new edition of the Comunica Trophy, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates with the collaboration of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo and the sponsorship of the visual communication company Comunica.
Among the crews that aspire to take the laurels of the ORC class we will see the Yess Too of the Portuguese Rui Ramada, the Aceites Abril of the Ourenses Luis and Jorge Pérez Canal, the Pairo Marnatura skippered by Luis Bugallo, the Magical of Julio Rodríguez or Al Balea Dous by Luis Pérez.
This year, as a novelty, there is also a trophy for the ORC A2 category, for sailboats with a skipper and a single crew member, in which some nautical couples have registered, such as those made up of Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure aboard the Salaño Dos ; or Javier Rey and Jorge Justo, in the Q Talent Consultants.
The Luxoconf by Jean Claude Sarrade, the SND Cormorán by Francisco Martínez, the Ifaclinic by Joao Allen, La Galera by Miguel Fernandez and the Pazo de Cea by Iago Carballo are some of the J80s that will compete for victory in this class of one-designs, which it will not be the only one, as there will also be a category for the Figaro Beneteau.
The latter will be sailed by the crews led by Teresa Valladares, aboard the Ladeira; or Javier Bernardez in the Bouvento.
In the absence of the deadline for registration, which will remain open until one hour before the start of the competition, there are already nearly 200 sailors who will leave Vigo this Saturday at two in the afternoon for Baiona for the final victory .
They will have a route of about 15 miles ahead of them with several steps through beacons for which the weather forecast announces winds from the south southwest with an average of 8 knots and peaks of up to 18, which could be even more intense given the probability that record showers at times.
Once the competition is over, the Monte Real Club de Yates will host the awards ceremony for the winners, in which the president of the Baiona club, José Luis Álvarez; the executive director of Comunica, Roberto Lira; the mayor of Baiona, Carlos Gómez; and the deputy for sports from the Pontevedra Provincial Council, Gorka Gómez.
· After launching the J80 League and celebrating the Spanish Optimist Championship, the heavy sailing regattas arrive at the Monte Real Club de Yates
· The sailboats that participate in the Comunica Trophy scheduled for next Saturday in the Rías Baixas will sail the distance that separates Vigo from Baiona
· The regatta will start at two in the afternoon from the vicinity of the Náutico de Vigo that collaborates with the race and the awards ceremony will be in the afternoon in Baiona
After launching the J80 Winter League and celebrating the Spanish Optimist Championship, the Monte Real Club de Yates inaugurates this Saturday the heavy sailing season with the Comunica Trophy, the first of the six regattas for cruisers that the club from Baiona has scheduled for this 2021.
A coastal route between Vigo and Baiona will be the route that the participating sailboats (which will be able to compete in ORC, ORC Open, ORC Double Handed, J80 or Fígaro) must complete to win the final victory, which will be resolved in a single day.
Although it will be the weather that dictates the final route, the intention of the regatta committee is to make the fastest boats pass by a mark while the rest sail directly, with the aim that everyone can reach the finish more or less at the same time.
The arrival point will be located in the vicinity of the Baiona dock and once the race is over, it will be the Monte Real Yacht Club itself that will host the award ceremony for the winners, at seven in the afternoon.
As a novelty this year, one of the categories in contention will be the ORC Double Handed, in which the sailboats will be manned by only two people. This is a change accepted by the organizing club after receiving requests from some owners who want to be able to participate in more regattas within this modality to prepare for the Galician A2 Championship to be held in June.
One of the sailboats that will participate in this category will be the Salaño Dos of Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure, which will face, among others, the Q Talento Consultores of Javier Rey and Jorge Justo; to Lacazán by Mariano Benavente and Genoveva Pereiro; or the Alalunga by Rodrigo Rodríguez and Carlos Cárdenas.
In ORC there will be three of the regulars of the great regattas in Galicia: the Yess Racing of the Portuguese Rui Ramada, the Aceites Abril of the Pérez Canal brothers and the Pairo skippered by Luis Bugallo. And for the J80 competition, Jean Claude Sarrade’s Luxoconf, Francisco Martínez’s SND Cormorán, Joao Allen’s Ifaclinic, Miguel Fernandez’s La Galera, Juan Luis Tuero’s Luna Nueva and the Pazo de Cea by Iago Carballo.
In the last edition of the competition, held in 2019 (in 2020 there was no due to COVID19 restrictions), the Nahela of Club Deportivo Alagua, skippered by Victor Manuel Álvarez, won. He won the general classification and also took the victory in the ORC 1 class. In ORC 2 the winner was the Abal Abogados of Mariano Dios (Ro Yacht Club), and in monotypes the Cansino of Fernando Yáñez and the Ladeira of Genoveva Pereiro prevailed. The fastest boat to complete the course (11.9 miles in just 2 hours and 7 minutes) was the Swan 45 Yess Too of the Portuguese Rui Ramada.
This new edition of the Comunica Trophy is once again sponsored, for yet another year, and there are now five (four cruise editions and one monotype exclusive), by Comunica Comunicación Visual, a firm that offers printing services, labels, industrial design and articles acrylics to all of Galicia from the municipality of A Guarda, where its main headquarters are located. For months now, under the signature of AEProtec, they have also been manufacturing masks, screens and other products related to protection against COVID19.

The Monte Real Club de Yates inaugurates its 2019 cruise season this Easter with the celebration, next Holy Saturday, of the Comunica Trophy, a coastal regatta between Vigo and Baiona that the participating sailboats will compete in starting at two in the afternoon .
It will be at that time that the regatta’s starting horn will be heard in front of the facilities of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, which once again collaborates with Monte Real in organizing the competition.
From Vigo to Baiona, the Comunica Trophy fleet will have to complete a 15-mile route in which, according to forecasts, a favorable wind will remain, some strong enough to allow them to complete the route without incident. The regatta will also be held on a fairly clear day, with pleasant temperatures between 18 and 20 degrees, and little sea.
Among the participating fleet are some of the winners of the previous edition, who will seek to revalidate victory. This is the case of the Portuguese Rui Ramada, who in 2018 won the victory of his class aboard the MBA Atlántico and who this time will participate at the controls of the Yess Too.
Another of the 2018 winners will also be among the participants, the Balea Dous of the Real Club Náutico de Rodeira, with the usual good work of Luis Pérez at the controls.
Another company that has also announced its participation in the competition is Ramón Ojea’s Bosch Service Solutions, from the Club Marítimo de Canido, who will return for the gold that escaped him the previous year, in which he had to make do with third place bronze. Among the J80, the winner of the last edition also repeats, which was Juan Luis Tuero’s Luna Nueva.
The registration period to participate in the Comunica Trophy is still open and anyone who wishes to compete can register until the day of the regatta itself. Registration is free and participating boats will also have a 50 percent discount on registration for the Repsol Trophy, which Monte Real organizes once again to coincide with the May 1 long weekend.

Several of its managers and area managers will participate in the awards ceremony for the winners, which will be held on the same Saturday as the competition starting at seven in the afternoon at the Monte Real Club de Yates facilities.
· More than 200 sailors aboard the 31 participating sailboats will compete in the first major cruise competition of the Monte Real Yacht Club in 2018 · Among the contenders for the title, the Oral Group of Pedro Pazos (Sanxenxo) and the Balea Dous of Luis Pérez (Rodeira) repeat winners of the previous edition After leaving Sanxenxo (1:00 p.m.) and Vigo (2:00 p.m.), the fleet is scheduled to start crossing the finish line in the bay of Baiona at five in the afternoon
The Rías Baixas will witness tomorrow, Saturday, the dispute over the Comunica Trophy, one of the most outstanding cruise events in the spring nautical calendar in Galicia, in which more than 200 regattas will participate aboard the 31 sailboats registered so far. This is the first major cruise trophy of the Monte Real Club de Yates in 2018, which also has the collaboration of the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo and the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, hosting the departures of the fleet in front of their facilities.
The double start, from Sanxenxo and from Vigo, is the main novelty of this year’s Comunica Trophy, and it will take place one hour apart. At one in the afternoon the horn will sound in the vicinity of the Juan Carlos I marina, in Sanxenxo; and an hour later, at two o’clock, it will be the start in front of the port of Vigo. Both fleets will end up coming together on a route that will end in the bay of Baiona.
Among the contenders for the title we will see the winner of the previous edition in the cruiser-regatta category, the Oral Group, from the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo, who returns to the competition with Pedro Pazos at the controls and eager to repeat victory. The winner of the previous year in the cruise category will also compete, Luis Pérez’s Balea Dous, who will try to win one of the trophy prizes from the Real Club Náutico de Rodeira.
Among the J80 participants will be some of the monotypes that at the end of the month will compete in the Spanish Championship of the class held in Baiona, such as Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen, Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino or Luis de Mira’s Namasté . And in the Figaro class we will see some of the youngest sailors, since the sailboats will be crewed mainly by students from the Monte Real Club de Yates Sailing School.
If everything goes according to plan, the navigation of the fleet will be more or less agile and the fastest ships could have completed the journey in just over three hours, so that from five in the afternoon they would begin to see the first candles in the vicinity of the Baiones breakwater, where the finish line will be placed.
For all those who wish to follow the competition, the Juan Carlos I marina and the beaches closest to that area will be the points with the best visibility to see the departure of the fleet from Sanxenxo, while the departure from Vigo can be seen from the surroundings of the boat. The Costa de la Vela, the westernmost of the Morrazo peninsula, will be another of the places from which to enjoy sailing the sailboats, as well as the interior of the Bay of Baiona, the end point of the route.
