The Galician J80 return to Baiona this Saturday to play the third round of the J80 Winter League, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates with the sponsorship of Baitra. It is the third day on the program (the second effective after the cancellation of the first due to lack of wind) and everything indicates that the classification will begin to get exciting.

In the three tests held so far, the favorites began to take up positions and the three tests scheduled for this Saturday will serve to further define the classification, creating greater distances between the crews at the top and bottom of the table or further adjusting the head positions.

In addition, if the wind allows the celebration of the entire program (everything points to yes, because the forecast announces north component winds of about 9 knots and peaks of up to 14) and the sixth round is reached, a discard will come into play. , a move that will allow teams to remove their worst result from the standings.

So far, the three sailboats that occupy the positions of honor are separated by just two points from each other. They are Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen (4 points), Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto (6 points) and Manel Cunha’s Marías (8 points). In fourth and fifth position, somewhat further apart, we find Alejandra Suárez’s Cansino (15 points) and Santiago Estévez’s Spaco (17 points).

The Count of Gondomar brings to the stage the great test of the Carrumeiro Chico


The 100-mile round-trip challenge between Baiona and Carrumeiro Chico inaugurates this Friday the forty-sixth edition of the competition

April, Pairo, Magical or Solventis oils are some of the contenders for victory in the star test of the Zelnova Zeltia Banco Sabadell Grand Prix

· The departure will be given at 11 in the morning from the interior of the bay of Baiona and the end is not expected until well into the morning

The forty-sixth edition of the Conde de Gondomar Trophy – Zelnova Zeltia Banco Sabadell Grand Prix, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates, brings to the stage this Friday on its opening day the great test of the Carrumeiro Chico, a regatta close to 100 miles considered as one of the most complex sailing crossings in Galicia.

Created in 1981 from an idea by Fernando García Tobío and in honor of Jesús Valverde, the race celebrates 40 years of life with more validity than ever, since there are many who aspire to achieve the record of the regatta, which has remained intact since 2011. That year, the Cenor & De Dietrich, a Farr 50 from the Real Club de Regatas Galicia led by Martín Bermúdez de la Puente, completed the journey in 11 hours, 56 minutes and 57 seconds, a mark that has not been broken since then.

Regardless of what happens in this edition, what is clear is that the Carrumeiro Chico test is quite a navigation challenge and one of the most exciting tests of the Spanish sailing season. The round trip regatta between Baiona and the lighthouse located in the Corcubión estuary will begin, if the weather permits, at 11 in the morning, with the start honk from inside the Bay of Baiona.

From then on, the sailboats that will dare with the test will head north along a route not marked in advance. The crews will be able to choose to sail closer to the land or more open towards the sea, outside the Cíes and Ons archipelagos.

In the last edition of the competition, the Portuguese skipper Rui Ramada and his crew, aboard the Swan 45 Yess Too, were the first to reach the Carrumeiro, eight hours after leaving Baiona. They were the fastest (they had already achieved it in 2019), but the time compensation gave the stage victory to Magical de Julio Rodríguez, who would also win the final victory of the Conde de Gondomar in 2020.

On this occasion, the Portuguese from Ramada will not go out on the water, but we will see the Magical from Vigo, trying to defend their title. In front of them, some of the most outstanding teams of the current Galician nautical scene, such as the Aceites Abril of the brothers Luis and Jorge Pérez Canal; the Marías of the Portuguese Manel Marías; Alberto Moro’s Solventis, with Manuel “Malalo” Bermúdez de Castro at the wheel; the Sea of Frades Marine Ronautics by Jorge Carneiro; or Corsair by Jorge Durán, from Vilagarcía.

In this edition of the Count we will surely see again the classic hand in hand between Aceites Abril and Pairo – Photo José Ramón Louro

José Luis Freire’s Pairo, the owner and skipper with the highest number of wins at the Conde de Gondomar, will also enter the competition. Add a total of 6: three in the eighties (1983, 1984 and 1988) and another three in the first years of the new millennium (2003, 2007 and 2009). At the controls of his boat, one of his trusted men, the young Luis Bugallo, who has already completed the Carrumeiro stage with very good times on several occasions.

The 46th edition of the Conde de Gondomar Trophy – Zelnova Zeltia Banco Sabadell Grand Prix will last for three days, from Friday to Sunday. The development of the first two stages (Carrumeiro test, on Friday 23; and Ons test, on Saturday 24), can be followed live through the Monte Real Club de Yates website , at the following link:

13 women aspire to the title of Galician Champions of A Dos


· For the first time in the history of the competition, specific prizes are put up for the best female and mixed crews

· The 72 sailors participating in the race will compete this Saturday in a regatta of about 30 round trip miles between Baiona and Ons

· The appointment framed in the MRW Trophy is held for the tenth consecutive year under the organization of the Monte Real Club de Yates


13 women aspire to become, this Saturday, the new Galician A Dos Champions in the regional event that the Monte Real Club de Yates organizes by delegation of the Royal Galician Sailing Federation and is part of the MRW Trophy. For the first time in the history of the competition, in 2021 specific prizes are put up for the best female and mixed crews, and there will be several teams of each type competing in the different classes.

In J80, 4 exclusively female teams will go for the title, made up of: Alejandra Suárez and Pilar Amaro, María Campos and Rita Hernández, Marta Ramada and Dunia Reino; and Carlota Hernández and Carolina Terron. The crew members of this last team, Hernández and Terrón, who will sail aboard the “Gordita”, agreed on the importance of continuing to take steps to increase the number of women sailing.

“Having a prize for women within the general competition is very important since the percentage of men who participate is always higher and, statistically, they have more chances of winning, so these prizes – says Carlota Hernández – they allow women to stand out in some way, and they also serve to promote sports among women” .

For Carolina Terrón, the fact that there are more and more women in the regattas is a very good sign, “but there is still a lot of work to be done” , she says. “These types of initiatives give women much more visibility than they usually have and that is very important to continue attracting more female sailors. I think that a very strong commitment is being made in this sector, more and more, and that it is working, but we have to continue working”

In the class in which they compete, that of J80, there will also be a mixed team, that of the couple formed by Luis de Mira and Susana Baena, but they will have to face the male teams since it has not been possible to form a mixed class due to lack of boats (the committee required the participation of at least 4).

Where there will be a mixed section will be in the ORC class, in which 4 crews made up of men and women have signed up to participate. They are those of Carolina Martínez and Miguel Ángel Fernández (RCN A Coruña), Víctor Carrión and Ana Sardiña (CN Beluso), Elena Raga and Miguel Sterner (MRCYB); and Miguel Barros and Paula Rey (MRCYB).

In total, 36 sailboats (at this time the registration period has not yet closed) manned by only two sailors, will compete this Saturday in the Rías Baixas in a regatta that will begin at eleven in the morning from inside the bay of Baiona. It will be there that the starting horn will be given for a route of about 30 miles that will take the participants, if the wind allows it, to the Ons area, to return again to Baiona.

Faced with a complicated weather forecast, which could make the intensity of the wind drop, the committee has also prepared an alternative that would involve taking the sailboats through the interior of the Vigo estuary towards the Rande bridge, placing various points of possible return in case it were necessary to shorten or even finish the route earlier than planned.

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 MRCYB, José Luis Álvarez, and the Director of the South Galicia Zone of MRW, Santos Almeida, will participate, among others. event sponsor.

The wind leaves the opening day of the Spanish Optimist Championship blank


· The 150 sailors from 10 Spanish communities who were going to dispute the opening day of the Optimist national in Baiona this Wednesday returned to land without being able to inaugurate the scoreboard

· The regatta committee kept the fleet in the water for several hours in the hope of being able to start at least one race, but the wind did not pick up nor was it strong enough to hold the regatta

· The Spanish Optimist Championship – Cenor Trophy organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club continues tomorrow, Thursday, starting at eleven in the morning with the second of the four scheduled days

The wind did its thing this Wednesday in Baiona (Galicia) and left blank the opening day of the Spanish Optimist Championship – Cenor Trophy, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates by delegation of the Royal Galician Sailing Federation.

After several hours in the water, the 150 sailors from 10 autonomous communities who were going to compete in the first tests of this national light sailing race returned to land without being able to open the scoreboard.

The regatta committee, with Cristofol Morales at the helm, maintained until the end the hopes of being able to start at least one test with which to open the classification, but the wind did not pick up nor did it pick up enough intensity to celebrate the regatta. Winds were recorded from all four quadrants and, when it seemed that the situation was going to stabilize, half a regatta field was laid, but the attempt was ultimately frustrated.

The opening of a championship that still has three more days on the program was thus watered down and the sights are already set on the weather forecasts for this Thursday, which are announced to be somewhat better. Quite a bit of cloudiness is expected and there is a high probability of rain, even heavy showers, but the wind will blow more intensely, which will make it easier for the Optimists to navigate. If the forecast holds true, it will blow from the southeast in the morning and from the southwest in the afternoon, with between 5 and 8 knots on average and gusts of up to 16.

The start time of the tests is set for eleven in the morning but the clock will be, as always, subject to what happens with the wind. In the water will be the 150 sailors from Andalusia, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, the Valencian Community, Catalonia, Murcia, the Basque Country, Cantabria, Madrid and also the Galicians, who act as hosts.

In dispute, the titles of national champions of Optimist in the categories SUB 16 and SUB 13, and also the Championship by Autonomies, which will reward the territorial federations that obtain the best results.

The 2021 Optimis Spanish Championship is held this year in Baiona organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates by delegation of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation and thanks to the sponsorship of the Cenor Group.
