High tension in the Gestilar J80 Autumn League, with a very close table of results after the celebration, this Saturday in the Rías Baixas, of the penultimate round. Several unexpected conditions made the third of the five stages of the one-design championship organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates one of the most exciting to date.

One of the surprises of the day was given by the Marías of the Portuguese Manel Cunha, who after not having participated in the first two days, made a stellar entry into the competition, winning the two tests held this Saturday. The Portuguese crew was full of victories, but with its scarcity of races disputed it will be difficult to access the podium positions from the 18th position it currently occupies.

Less surprising was the climb to the top of the standings for Solventis Ribadeo, who after his great performance on the previous day with Malalo Bermúdez at the helm, this Saturday, with Alberto García leading the team, managed to maintain his good work and his streak in the results. He signed two second places that allow him to hang, temporarily, the gold of the competition.

Worse luck was experienced by one of the favorites to win the Gestilar J80 Autumn League, Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto. The current champion of Spain in the class made an out of line and lost the lead he had had since the first day, being relegated to second position behind Solventis.

After first place for Solventis with 13 points and second for Alboroto with 15 points, Bica de Chisco Catalán appears in third position with 17 points, which once again changed its crew, this time with Laureano. and Jaime Wizner on board, who were also joined by Jesús González-Llanos.

Fernando Yáñez’s El Cansino, in fourth position, is the boat that has the best chance of fighting for one of the honorary positions in the two days remaining before the end of the league. With two third places in the tests held this Saturday and after eliminating his worst result thanks to discarding, he is left with 22 points, quite close to the first three classified and far from the rest.

Below, a margin of just 5 points, between 32 and 36 points, are grouped by Andrés Gómez’s Waikiki; the Pezoas by Nicolás Ángel Álvarez; the I3D Atlántico by Guillermo Blanco and the Mondo by Bernardo Macedo.

The J80 face a decisive day in the Gestilar Autumn League this Saturday

 

· The one-design competition organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates crosses the equator with the celebration of the third of the five planned stages

· Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto and Francisco “Chisco” Catalán’s Bica lead the standings separated by just two points

· If the weather allows two of the three tests scheduled for this Saturday to be played, the crews will be able to eliminate their worst result from the table

The J80 that this autumn will be played in the Rías Baixas in the Gestilar League of the Monte Real Club de Yates will live this Saturday a decisive day at the equator crossing of the competition, which will put into play, starting at three in the afternoon, the third of the five stages that make up the one-design championship.

Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto and Francisco “Chisco” Catalán’s Bica lead the standings separated by just two points (they have 11 and 13 respectively). A little further down, in a range of seven points, are grouped together by Malalo Bermúdez’s Solventis Ribadeo (19 points), Real Club Náutico de A Coruña’s I3D Atlántico, led by Guillermo Blanco (24 points) and Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino ( 26 points).

Four crews from Baiona and one from A Coruña make up the Top 5 of a league in which 23 boats are playing for the title, most of them belonging to the J80 fleet of the Monte Real Club de Yates, and others from such diverse origins such as the Grupo Bazán Club (Ferrol), the We Do Sailing Club (Porto), the RCN A Coruña, the CN Portonovo or the Liceo Marítimo de Bouzas.

After holding three races on the first day and one on the second, the race committee, headed by Carlos Villar, is confident that they will be able to start three new rounds this Saturday, which would be the fifth, sixth and seventh of the competition. From the sixth, the long-awaited discard will come into play, which allows the crews to eliminate their worst result from the table.

If this happens, the teams that will benefit the most from the discard will be those that remained more or less constant in their positions, making very few mistakes. The clearest case is that of the first two classified: Alboroto and Bica, who finished all the previous tests in first and second position except on one occasion.

Those of Ameneiro arrive at this third stage with almost perfect partials of 1-1-1-8; and the Chisco Catalán crew has 2-2-7-2 on their markers. Both share a very weak result from which they will be able to get rid of in the discard and thus separate themselves from their most direct rivals, who did not manage to be so constant in their positions.

Another of the movements that usually occurs when a discard comes into play is the grouping, in the center of the table, of a good number of boats that are close in scores, offering greater excitement to the competition.

In principle, the weather forecasts for this Saturday are quite propitious, with a southerly component wind that will blow with sufficient intensity to allow the planned events to be held.

New assault of the Gestilar J80 Autumn League this Saturday in Baiona. The Monte Real Club de Yates autumn one-design championship celebrates its second day with Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto leading the table.

The current Spanish champion of the class is leading the competition with perfect partials of 1-1-1, after having won with a full victories in the three races held on the opening day.

For this second stage, the program has scheduled the dispute of another three regattas, and if the conditions allow its celebration, the more than twenty crews of the J80 group will have the opportunity to make their first discard.

This possibility of eliminating the worst result of the table will surely adjust the classification even more, and will force the fleet to try to avoid any error, no matter how small, in the following days. In a 5-stage circuit, with 15 tasks and only 2 discards, any failure can be very expensive for the teams.

Waiting to see what will happen this Saturday, in which the weather announces good conditions for navigation (winds from the south with an average of 7 knots and peaks of up to 12), the three boats that are in the lead are the Alboroto de Juan Carlos Ameneiro (MRCYB), Bica de Chisco Catalán (MRCYB) and Guillermo Blanco’s I3D Atlántico (RCN A CORUÑA).

Two other boats from the organizing club, Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino and Andrés Álvarez’s Solventis Ribadeo, will try to storm the provisional podium from fourth and fifth position.

The boat manned by Javier Aguado, Javier Lago and Antoni Xabier del Río, who replaced the usual team member Juan Lago in this inaugural stage, completed three very good races, succeeding in tactics, securing the edges, the first passing through the buoy with maneuvers clean and widening the distance with their rivals as soon as they found an opportunity.

It did not make it easy for him, yes, the rest of the fleet that is competing for the championship, some crews that have been adding quality throughout the year thanks to the large number of competitions that have been held in Galicia, including the recent Championship of Spain disputed in Baiona.

Ships such as Francisco “Chisco” Catalán’s Bica, Guillermo Blanco’s I3D Atlántico, Fernando “Nano” Yáñez’s Cansino, Andrés Álvarez’s Solventis Ribadeo or Bernardo Macedo’s Mondo sailed very close to each other at all times , and showed their nails and teeth in the three contested races, moving up and down positions at the slightest success or error of their rivals.

Finally, the Bica de Chisco Catalán, accompanied on board by Gerardo Prego, Ramón Ojea and Álvaro García, was the one that managed to take second place; leaving third place for I3D Atlántico from Coruña led by Guillermo Blanco, Agustín Rubio and Manuel Vargas.

Cansino and Solventis Ribadeo completed the Top 5 of the classification after the celebration of this first day of the Gestilar J80 Autumn League, in which another of the outstanding boats was the Waikiki, led by Andrés Gómez and crewed by sailors from the Magical Vigués.

With a new boat and this being the first time they had seen each other face to face with the regulars of the J80 races in Baiona, Gómez’s men completed three very good races and managed to place themselves in seventh position in the table behind Mondo, which was sixth.

Decisive day for the J80 Autumn League

 

· This Saturday the last three tests of the autumnal one-design championship that have been held in Baiona since last October will be held

· Located at the head of the classification, Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen is the sailboat that has the most ballots to win the final victory of the league

· After the celebration of the last regattas, the Monte Real Club de Yates will award the prizes to the winners of the competition

 

This Saturday will be a decisive day for the J80 Autumn League, the one-design competition that has been held in Baiona since last October under the organization of the Monte Real Yacht Club.

The bay of Baiona will host the last three regattas of the championship, which will end up defining a winners’ podium that, except for last-minute surprises, has a clear favourite, Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen.

The J80, led by the skipper from Vigo, has won 5 victories in the 6 races held so far and is at the top of the standings with 5 points, with a fairly comfortable margin compared to its most direct rivals.

Those rivals, aspiring to one of the podium positions, are Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino and Santiago Estévez’s Spaco, located in second and third position with 15 and 24 points respectively. And not much farther from them, they are followed by Juan Luis Tuero’s Luna Nueva, with 25 points, and Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto, with 29.

It will, therefore, be very close, that center of the list where anything can happen depending on the ability of the crews in the last rounds of the championship, which will once again be double courses between buoys of the windward-leeward type.

The forecast for this Saturday announces a fairly autumnal day, with overcast skies, some possibility of rain, and southerly winds above 7 knots, which may reach up to fourteen at the moment.

Once the last tests in the water have been completed, the Monte Real Club de Yates will award the prizes to the winners of the competition, complying with the security protocols established by COVID19.

Marías manages to beat Okofen, which continues to lead

 

Manuel María Cunha’s Marías gives the surprise of the day by becoming the first J80 to beat Okofen so far in the championship

· Despite not winning one of the races, sailor Javier de la Gándara from Vigo consolidated Okofen’s leadership in the J80 Autumn League

The ocean sailor and his crew have won 5 victories in the 6 races held so far in the Monte Real Club de Yates league

 

The sailor from Vigo Javier de la Gándara once again showed his worth one more day in the waters of the Bay of Baiona by leading a new triumphant day for Okofen in the J80 Autumn League. The ocean sailor and his crew have 5 victories in the 6 races held so far in the league organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates.

The full number of first places achieved so far by Okofen was marred only by a second position signed this afternoon in one of the tests. A result that, with the entry into play of a discard, they were able to eliminate from the scoreboard, thus consolidating their leadership and moving further and further away from their rivals.

With 5 points, Gándara’s men are at the top of the standings, followed by Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino, who once again slipped into the top positions, but without managing to climb to first position. He finished third and second in the regattas this Saturday in Baiona and placed second in the provisional general standings with 15 points.

Spaco de Santiago Estévez also climbed one position and slipped into the provisional podium, greatly favored by the application of the discard. They will reach the final with 24 points, with Juan Luis Tuero’s Luna Nueva hot on their heels from fourth position with 25 points. Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Fuss closes the Top 5 of the J80 Autumn League, with 29 points.

The surprise of this third day, in which the wind blew with intensity and added emotion to the tests, was given by Manuel María Cunha’s Marías. The Portuguese, recently arrived from Calpe from competing in the Spanish Sailing League representing the Monte Real Club de Yates, managed to beat Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen in the first test of the day, something that no other sailboat had achieved so far. With that first place and the third achieved in the second test, in which they were affected by a broken spinnaker, he managed to climb quite a few positions in the general classification, but his absences in the first days keep him away from the positions of honor.

The J80 League continues to be played in compliance with all the security protocols established due to the coronavirus pandemic, with a large number of control measures to avoid any risk situation.

The fourth and last day of the competition will be held at the end of this month, on Saturday, November 28, on a day in which, in addition to the final tests in the water, the Monte Real Club de Yates will award the prizes to the winners.
