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.

With the Spanish Championship – Gestilar Trophy, the Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona has already kicked off the J80 class World Championship that the club will organize in September 2023

The J80 fleet already has new Spanish champions of the class. This Sunday, the Monte Real Club de Yates put an end to the J80 Spanish Championship – Gestilar Trophy, which the club had been celebrating since last Friday, with almost 40 sailboats in contention and as a prelude to the World Cup that the Rías Baixas will host next year.

After three intense days of regatta and seven races completed, the Juan Carlos Ameneiro Rampage sentenced a national title for which they fought tooth and nail from the first race, against a fleet it was not easy at all and with several teams that were about to take the lead.

With his usual crew, made up of the world class champion Javier Aguado, Javier Lago and Juan José Lago, Ameneiro started the championship strongly, adding two seconds and one first with which he was at the top of the table. On Saturday they withstood the pressure of their rivals and on Sunday, after winning a protest in the last test for an off-line that they managed to appeal, they were definitively proclaimed champions of Spain in J80.

“We are very happy to have won this championship in front of so many good crews. We wanted to make a worthy participation in the national but we did not expect to be so high. In the end we have had a magnificent championship and at the last minute, with a claim for an off-line that we did not have, far from it, the committee decided it was convenient to make a repair and we have won it very tight with Okofen, which is a very worthy opponent and he has done a very good regatta too”Ameneiro said.

Behind Alboroto, just four points away, Okofen, also from Monte Real Club de Yates, took the silver trophy and the runner-up position in Spain. The team made up of Javier de La Gándara, Diego Fernández, Pablo Franco and Jaime de La Gándara signed a very good national, going from less to more from the first day. He started from fifth position and even came close to winning, which finally eluded him, leaving him a more than worthy second position.

The Cantabrian Solintal de Ignacio Camino (Real Club Marítimo de Santander) completed the podium in third position, not without having fought until the last minute for the title and after a weekend in which he never got off the podium . Armando Gutiérrez, Cristobal Piris and Abelardo Quevedo also haggled on the boat.

The event organized by Monte Real also decided the new champions of Spain with a mixed crew, a title that went to another local boat, the Luis de Mira Namasté. With Susana Baena, Amparo Molla, Luis Gutiérrez and Hilda Martín among their ranks, Namasté finished with partials of 3-13-3-13-8-23-7, in eighth place overall and as the first mixed team. A brilliant result that leaves Baiona with the second title up for grabs.

In addition to the national championship prizes, the Gestilar Trophy also gave awards to the best women’s and youth crews in the championship. The Decoexsa of the Real Club Náutico de San Sebastián, skippered by Olatz Muñoz and with a crew made up of Marta Lizarraga, Eva González, Patricia Alza, Gabriela Cruz and Carlota Gala, was the best boat manned exclusively by women.

The special mention for the best youth crew went to another Basque team, Fhimasa del Real Club Marítimo del Abra-Real Sporting Club with a crew made up of Nicolás Viar Laorden, Perico Basterra, Manuel Rey-Baltar, Alba Ortega and Tomás Trueba. They also achieved a meritorious fifteenth position.

With these results ends a very tight Spanish Championship in which the competitiveness between the crews led the fleet to fight every length, every start and every section of the route. A perfect rehearsal for next year’s World Cup, which will be held again in these waters and under the organization of the Baionese club.

“With any World Cup that is held in Spain we are delighted and that it is held in Baiona is a great place. Monte Real is a club that is dedicated to sailing and to organizing this type of championship, so it is a luxury to be here”, affirmed the president of the J80 class in Spain, Armando Gutiérrez.

The delivery of trophies, final point and prelude to the 2023 World Cup

With the regatta now over, Monte Real hosted the final trophy ceremony in the afternoon, a ceremony in which the winners of the Gestilar Trophy and the new J80 Spanish champions were crowned. The event was attended by José Luis Álvarez, president of the Monte Real Yacht Club; Javier García Valcárcel, president of Gestilar; Raúl Guerrero, CEO of Gestilar; Carlos Gómez, mayor of Baiona; and Daniel Benavides, provincial head of sports of the Xunta de Galicia.

For the president of the Monte Real Club de Yates, José Luis Álvarez, this J80 Spanish Championship is very important because “It is the starting point for the world championship that we will celebrate in Baiona next year, and because the Spanish crews have already been able to compete in Galician waters and test our regatta fields”. At the World Cup event, scheduled for September 2023, the manager of the Baiona club is confident of having a significant international presence and “that the Galician and Monte Real sailors end up in a good position “.

During the ceremony, Alboroto was also presented with the Trophy of the J80 Spain class. The person in charge of presenting the award was the president of the class, Armando Gutiérrez.

It also had the support of the Xunta de Galicia, the Pontevedra Provincial Council and the Pontevedra City Council; and from brands and companies such as Volvo Autesa, Martin Miller’s Gin or Terras Gauda, among others.

Galicia remains at the forefront in the final stretch of the Spanish J80 Championship

 

Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen team from Vigo had a great day this Saturday, adding two victories and placing second, just four points behind the leader

· The Rampage of Juan Carlos Ameneiro remains first in the general classification and will seek to win the hotly contested J80 national title on Sunday

· After Alboroto and Okofen, the third place on the podium is occupied by Solintal from Cantabria, who keeps his options open for the final day

· After the dispute of the last tests this Sunday the Monte Real Club de Yates will hold the awards ceremony at five in the afternoon

Very long day for the fleet that disputed the Spanish J80 Championship in the waters of the Vigo estuary, on a second day that kept the crews in the water for almost ten hours. The stage began with a delay of more than three hours and was resolved with new changes in an increasingly tight general.

The Galician Alboroto de Juan Carlos Ameneiro (MRCYB) managed to maintain his position as leader in the regatta field ahead of Okofen de Javier de La Gándara (MRCYB), one of the most outstanding of the day, after signing two firsts in the three races completed and climb to second place overall.

First thing in the morning, the Committee announced a postponement at the regatta course located in the Cíes area, waiting for conditions to improve before giving the first honk. The fleet, which was already in the area around twelve noon, had to wait until after three in the afternoon for the wind to pick up with about seven knots from the northwest, finally allowing the almost forty participating teams to add three new tests in their lockers.

“We had rather more complicated conditions, especially at the beginning,” said Aleix Ballester, the championship’s main official, after returning to land. There was very little wind, so we looked for the pressure further north of the race course and there we managed to start with about six or seven knots that reached twelve in the last race”.

The first test of the day began with practically all the teams in a fist, disputing the partial victory. At the head of the fleet, Santander’s Solintal and Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen were in a tough one-on-one match for almost the first half of the race, but the Gándara men did not give up and managed to sign their first partial victory after having released on Friday in fifth position overall.

Behind, Ignacio Camino’s Solintal failed to maintain their position and crossed the finish line in fifth position, while second and third place in the race went to two other representatives of the Real Club Marítimo de Santander, Palibex of Guillermo González and Etnia Barcelona with Peru Múgica at the controls.

In the second test, however, the tables were turned and it was three other teams that shared the first three positions, leaving an increasingly tight general after the entry into play of the discard, which allowed the crews to eliminate from the table your worst result.

The Avator Mercury of the renowned Cantabrian sailor Jaime Piris was the winner of the heat ahead of Solintal, also representing the Real Club Marítimo de Santander, who on this occasion did keep their options until the end and added a second place in their locker. Third position went to Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto (Monte Real Club de Yates), who returned to the top positions after finishing eleventh in the previous one.

After the second test and with a wind that was already reaching twelve knots, the Regatta Committee honked for a final race in which only Javier de La Gándara’s men repeated on the podium, adding their second victory of the day ahead of Cleansailing by Chisco Catalán and Ferralemes by Rosario García, both from Monte Real, occupying the second and third position respectively.

With these results, Okofen climbs up to second place on the podium and is only four points behind the leader, who continues to be Ameneiro’s Uproar. Although the final result will depend on what happens on Sunday, everything is open for both crews.

“It was a very complicated day but we did three good partials with which we placed ourselves close to the first. Where we are now is already a good result, so if we manage to improve it tomorrow it would be great and if we stay in second position it would also be perfect.”, stated Jaime de La Gándara, crew member of the Okofen, as soon as they reached the pontoons.

Behind, third place is now occupied by Solintal, who finished the day with a ninth in the last test and also has options for the final victory.

Tomorrow, Sunday, the Committee will try to complete the program again with the first start at twelve noon. The reports once again predict a day with little wind, so we will have to wait to see how the conditions present themselves on the regatta field. In the words of the main official, “the report is still complicated for tomorrow and we have the time limit at half past three, but we hope to be able to get one or two heats”.

Once the competition is over, the trophy ceremony will be held at five in the afternoon in the gardens of Monte Real, where the new champion of Spain in the J80 class and winner of the Gestilar Trophy will be crowned.

Galician dominance at the premiere of the J80 Spanish Championship with an unstoppable rampage

 

· The Rampage of Juan Carlos Ameneiro of the Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona seals an almost perfect opening day, positioning itself as the first leader

· Nine and thirteen points behind him are Ignacio Camino’s Solintal (Santander) and Rafael Díaz’s Dorsia Covirán (Castellón), second and third

Great start of the J80 Spanish Championship in the Galician Rías Baixas. The appointment organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona with the sponsorship of Gestilar gave the starting honk this Friday for the first tests in the waters of the Vigo estuary, and it did so with one of the local teams, the Alboroto de Juan Carlos Ameneiro, comfortably dominating among a fleet of almost forty teams fighting for the national title.

The day began punctually in the regatta field located in the Cíes anchorage and it did so with very good conditions for navigation. The wind, from the northeast component and with a stable intensity of seven or eight knots, allowed the fleet to open markers with the dispute of the first three tests of the program.

The first victory of the day was played by two teams practically from the start. Ignacio Camino’s Solintal from Cantabria was the fastest and managed to score a comfortable victory ahead of local Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto, who was second. Behind, at a considerable distance, the third position was awarded to another team from Monte Real, Luis de Mira’s Namasté with a brilliant performance in the opening test.

Already in the second, with a little less wind, it was Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen that took the cat to the water, while Alboroto repeated with a second place and Rafael Díaz’s Dorsia Covirán burst among the top teams scoring the third position.

It was in the last test of the day when the crew led by Ameneiro managed to complete a great day of regattas, taking their first partial victory ahead of two other teams sailing under the banner of Monte Real: Spaco de Santiago Estévez and again the Namasté, second and third respectively.

With these results, El Alboroto, which also counts among its ranks the former Spanish J80 champion Javier Aguado, Javier Lago and Juan José Lago, becomes the first leader of the Spanish Championship – Gestilar Trophy, and does so with an advantage of nine points over the second, Solintal -which added a seventh and a sixth in the second and third tests-, and thirteen over Dorsia Covirán, which is provisionally placed third.

Once on land, Ameneiro stated that “we have seen ourselves very well, but the truth is that we did not think we would be so high, because this is a very competitive fleet with teams that have been very high in World and European Championships” . The Galician shipowner also highlighted the role played this Friday by both the ship and the crew, who have been key to being at the head of the fleet: “The boat has behaved very well, we have followed a good tactic and we have achieved some good positions defending ourselves very well so far. Now it’s time to continue there, since in such long championships you have to be regular and try to defend “. A great start, without a doubt, for Alboroto, which already this year had one of its best seasons in the J80 del Monte Real league.

If the wind allows it, the competition will resume on Saturday for the J80 fleet starting at twelve noon. Ahead, another two more days in which everything is still to be decided and in which the teams promise to fight until the end.

“In the three-day championships, as is the case here, what it is about is not puncturing and not doing an off-line, because it is something that already conditions the entire championship” affirmed the skipper of the Solintal, the former world champion of the Ignacio Camino class, who defends the banner of the Real Club Marítimo de Santander in second position. “We always aspire to everything, we try to do the best we can and as far as we go, if we can be at the top it will be great”.

Baiona hosts the Spanish J80 Championship

 

· The Royal Spanish Sailing Federation chose this year the Monte Real Club de Yates to organize the national event of these 8-meter monotypes

· 38 of the best crews in the country will compete in this competition of 9 tests in the waters of the Rías Baixas from this Friday to Sunday

· Galicia, Cantabria and the Basque Country are the communities that aspire to the title with the largest number of sailboats in this event sponsored by Gestilar

The fishing village of Baiona hosts, from this Friday to Sunday , the J80 Spanish Championship, an event that will measure the best crews of these 8-meter monotypes in the Rías Baixas. The Royal Spanish Sailing Federation delegated the organization of the event to the Monte Real Yacht Club and the club from Baiona, sponsored by Gestilar, will be in charge of putting the 9 races into contention which, if the wind allows it, will include the competition.

After a skippers meeting convened for twelve noon on Friday, in which the rules will be recalled and the guidelines for the different regattas will be given, the fleet will compete in the first rounds starting at two in the afternoon. The 38 participating boats will compete as a fleet and in real time . They must complete a course of the windward leeward type between buoys. It will be a double loop layout, with two upwind and two stern, which will be placed at the exit of the Bay of Baiona.

Although the J80 competitions organized by Monte Real are usually held inside the bay of Baiona, in a very specific area, the club decided on this occasion to move the regatta course a little further outside, to the place where in 2023 the World Class will be played. This will make it easier for the fleet, especially those that arrive from other communities and have fewer options to sail in Galicia, to get used to Galician waters and thus prepare for the World Cup.

Behind the Galician fleet, which covers more than half of the inscriptions (24), with a great weight of ships from Monte Real (17); the communities with the highest number of applicants for the title are Cantabria (7) and the Basque Country (4), with the presence, albeit a minority, of teams from other regions such as Valencia.

Among the participants, some of the big names in sailing in Spain, like the former J80 world champion, Ignacio Camino, aboard the Cantabrian Solintal; Spanish runner-up José Azqueta leading the biobizz (RCM of Abra RSC); or the recent Copa del Rey champion at the helm of the Teatro Soho Caixabank, Dany Cuevas, with the kuko.

Also entering the fray will be Peru Múgica’s Etnia Barcelona or Jaime Piris’s Avator Mercury , among others; all-female crews such as the Decoexa , led by Olatz Muñoz (RCN San Sebastián) and mixed such as the Dorsia Covirán of Nuria Sánchez (Marina Burriananova).

among the locals, the names that sound the most for their good results in the J80 leagues held in Baiona are the Okofen by Javier de la Gandara; Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Rampage, which will carry Spanish class champion Javier Aguado on board; or the Cleansiling of Chisco Catalán, in which Willy Alonso will also sail. Alberto Moro and Malalo Bermúdez’s Solventis Ribadeo are also expected to put up quite a fight on the water; the Cansino by Nano Yáñez and the Spaco by Santiago Estévez.

In the three days of competition (Friday from two in the afternoon, and Saturday and Sunday from twelve noon), the regatta committee hopes to be able to start the nine tests that are on the program, being mandatory that only two be held to give for valid the championship, and giving the crews the possibility of discarding their worst result in the classification from the fifth round.

Three categories will compete: the absolute, the mixed (in which at least 40 per cent of the crew must be of different gender) and the juvenile (in which none of the crew may have been born after 1998); and the awards ceremony for the winners will be held on Sunday at five in the afternoon in the gardens of the Monte Real Club de Yates.

Officially presented this Thursday in Baiona, the Spanish J80 Championship arrives in Galicia in 2022 after having been held in 2021 in Andalusia by the Real Club Náutico de la Línea de la Concepción. The victory then went to the Princesa Yaiza of five-time world champion Rayco Tabares, with world champion Pablo Santurde finishing second on board the M&G Tressis and Per Román’s GP Bullhound closing the podium.

“The J80s have been, for a long time, -said the president of Monte Real, José Luis Álvarez, at the presentation of the event- a very powerful fleet in Spain. They have been proving it for years, with the increase in units and competitions, and also with the achievement of international titles. Some of the best sailors in the class are Spanish and this club is proud to have supported them for ten years”.

The MRCYB brought the first J80s to Baiona in 2012. It facilitated the purchase of boats and moorings, created specific competitions for them and included them in its most important trophies. In 2018 he was chosen to organize the Spanish Championship, an event with which he repeats this year; and in 2023 it will host the World Cup. It is our objective to continue writing the history of the J80 in Spain, and that is where we are” , concluded the president of the Baionese club.

The J80 Spanish Championship is organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates with the sponsorship of Gestilar and Homes by Gestilar and the collaboration of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation and the Royal Galician Sailing Federation. It also has the support of the Xunta de Galicia, the Pontevedra Provincial Council and the Pontevedra City Council; and from brands and companies such as Volvo Autesa, Martin Miller’s Gin or Terras Gauda, among others.

OFFICIAL PRESENTATION DECLARATIONS

Monte Real Yacht Club September 15, 2022

“The J80 have been, for a long time, a very powerful fleet in Spain. They have been proving it for years, with the increase in units and competitions, and also with the achievement of international titles. Some of the best sailors in the class are Spanish and this club is proud to have supported them for ten years. It is our goal to continue writing the history of the J80 in Spain, and that is where we are”

José Luis Álvarez, president of the Monte Real Yacht Club

“For Gestilar, supporting this Spanish J80 Championship is very important because Galicia is much more than a place to develop our activity. It is a place to which we have a very special affection, and in my case also personal, for which we bet in a very clear way and where we have put part of the best that we have as a company with many important projects underway”

Javier García-Valcárcel, president of Gestilar, sponsor of the event

“For us it is an honor to be here presenting this event that, moreover, is the prelude to a World Cup in 2023, which will place Baiona on the international map. I think that all of us men and women from Baiona boast about Monte Real because without it, Baiona would not be the same. From the council we welcome all the crews and athletes, and we hope they enjoy Baiona these days”

Carlos Gómez, Mayor of Bayonne

“This has been a spectacular regatta season at Monte Real. There is no doubt that this club has the J80 fleet in its DNA, and this year we are going to repeat the success of the 2018 championship. Let’s hope, with the permission of all the crews, that it will also be a local victory. I wish all the participants the best of luck and that they enjoy our community in such an important year for El Camino de Santiago and el Xacobeo”

Marta Fernández-Tapias, territorial delegate of the Xunta de Galicia in Vigo

“I have to congratulate Monte Real for all their work to carry out this type of competitions that put Galicia in the national spotlight, because they entail a lot of effort and tenacity, and that is something that forms part of the essence of this club. I think this is a very important event, since it is the prelude to the World Cup that we will have in Baiona next year. It is key that we continue betting on sport and that we do so with relevant events, which consolidate us as a sports benchmark and attract people to Galicia and Baiona”

Gorka Gómez, sports deputy of the Pontevedra Provincial Council

“During these days, 38 boats will compete in real time in our fabulous estuary. 24 of them are from Galicia and 17 from Monte Real, and there is a large presence of boats from Cantabria and the Basque Country, as well as crews from other communities. Our wish as a club is that this championship will serve as training for next year’s World Cup, from which we are sure a Spanish winner will emerge. That is why we have chosen almost the same dates and the same regatta field, in the Cíes area, to serve as contact and preparation for the World Cup event”

Ignacio Sánchez Otaegui, Commodore of the Monte Real Yacht Club

The lack of wind prevented the Galician J80 fleet from debuting this Saturday in the Baitra J80 Winter League, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates with the sponsorship of Baitra Accesorios Navales.

Although the regatta committee managed to start the first of the three tests scheduled to open the competition, the sailboats were only able to complete one of the two laps that included the task.

In the middle of the first lap the difficulties for the crews with roles and drops of wind in the offset area already began. Despite everything, most of the boats managed to go up to the next beacon area, but when they were about to start the second round, the situation became untenable and the committee decided to cancel the test.

The regatta was then put on standby waiting for the wind to enter with the direction and intensity necessary to resume the competition, but it was not possible and the fleet was forced to return to land without having been able to open markers.

The next appointment with the Baitra J80 Winter League is on February 5 with the second of the six days that will be in contention.

The Baitra J80 Winter League that the Monte Real Club de Yates has organized in Baiona since last January enters its final stretch this Saturday with the dispute of the penultimate day of tests.

Starting at three in the afternoon, the 18 sailboats that aspire to the title of the one-design league will meet in the bay of Baiona to compete in three new regattas with which to continue defining positions for the end of the competition, scheduled for May 29.

This Saturday there will be three new tests between buoys, of the windward-leeward type with a double loop, in which Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen has proven to be the best so far. With partials of 4-3-1-1-2-1, the crew of the sailor from Vigo has been at the top of the classification for several days but without being able to relax too much, since there are several candidates to steal the lead.

From second place, Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Rampage is another of the firm contenders for the title. In the last stage, being able to rule out his worst result (12 points), which had been penalizing him a lot in the table, allowed him to rise to the silver position, just 4 points behind the leader.

A little further down, in third position, with provisional bronze, is the Portuguese crew of the Marías, led by Manel Marías. They are separated by 9 points from Okofen, but the team is one of those that usually surprises, so a possible Portuguese victory cannot be ruled out yet.

Somewhat more unstable with the previous scores was Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino who, with very different partials, is in fourth position, closely followed, just 2 points apart, by La Galera from A Coruña, with Miguel Fernández Vasco in front.

Baiona will host the J80 class sailing World Championship in 2023

· The Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona has been chosen to organize a world championship that will be held for the first time in Galicia

· The J80 are one of the most numerous and successful classes in Spanish sailing with 190 units, of which 130 compete in different parts of the country.

· Spain also has some of the best J80 sailors in the world, such as the five-time world champion Rayco Tabares

· That of 2023 will be the fourth World Cup that lands in Spain after the events held in Santander (2009), Sotogrande (2016) and Getxo (2019)

The Galician fishing village of Baiona will host the J80 class sailing World Championship in 2023. This was announced this morning at a press conference by the president of the Monte Real Yacht Club, José Luis Álvarez, who was very proud that the club had been chosen to organize such a prestigious sporting event.

This will be the first time that the J80 world championship is held in Galicia, a community that has been betting on this class for years with the holding of numerous competitions and the progressive increase in the number of this type of 8-meter boats, which are 29 at present and they have their main fleets in Baiona and A Coruña.

With the year already set on the agenda but with the exact date of the event still to be determined, at the Monte Real Club de Yates they are already beginning to pave the way to guarantee the success of the world championship. Over the next two years, the club’s board of directors plan to launch a full test drive to further push the J80 forward and encourage more owners to join the class.

To its usual J80 Autumn and Winter Leagues, in which the Galician fleet mainly participates; Other regattas of national importance will be added, such as the Spanish Cup or the Spanish Championship, which Monte Real hopes to organize before 2023.

In short, it is about focusing our gaze on the ultimate goal of achieving a world championship with the greatest possible participation of boats from different countries in the world, following in the footsteps of the other J80 world championships previously held in Spain, in Santander (2009 ), Sotogrande (2016) and Getxo (2019).

The official presentation of the event was attended this morning in Baiona by the president and commodore of the Monte Real Yacht Club, José Luis Álvarez and Ignacio Sánchez Otaegui; the mayor of Baiona, Carlos Gómez; the deputy for sports from the Pontevedra Provincial Council, Gorka Gómez; Guillermo Blanco representing the J80 Spain Class; and the president of the Royal Galician Sailing Federation, Manuel Villaverde. The General Secretary for Sport of the Xunta de Galicia, José Ramón Lete Lasa, transmitted to the club his congratulations by telephone and his commitment to support the World Cup as he was unable to attend the presentation because he was preparing the protocols for returning to activity for a large part of the sports sector of the Galician community.

A great step to strengthen the “Spanish Navy”

This new world championship awarded to Spain will undoubtedly be a unique opportunity to consolidate a class that is currently one of the largest in the country, with some 190 units (of which 130 compete in different parts of Spain). and very active fleets in Galicia, Cantabria, the Basque Country, Andalusia, the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands.

Spain also has some of the best J80 sailors in the world, such as the five-time world champion, Rayco Tabares from the Canary Islands; the Cantabrian Pablo Santurde, who currently holds the title after winning last year’s world championship in Getxo at the controls of the M&G Tressis; or the world runner-up in 2018, the Basque Iker Almandoz.

MRCYB’s commitment to the J80 class

The concession of the 2023 World Cup is an important accolade to the hard work of the Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona to promote the J80 class in Galicia, for which it has been betting since 2012.

At that time, the club offered very advantageous conditions to the shipowners for the acquisition and mooring of the boats. It also created two specific leagues exclusively for the competition of these monotypes and included specific regattas for them in the club’s major competitions, such as the Conde de Gondomar Trophy or the Príncipe de Asturias Trophy.

Six years after the appearance of the first J80 in Baiona, the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation granted the club the organization of the 2018 Spanish Championship. And just two years later, this new and great leap arrives, towards the 2023 World Cup. Prior to Baiona, the World Cup event will stop in Denmark (2021) and Newport – United States (2022).

They were the first fruits of a great effort that gave us the impetus to continue working and that today allows us to be here announcing that in 2023 we will host the most important competition in the class”

Miudo and Okofen fight for the Infinitus Rent Trophy

 

· The sailboats owned by Portuguese Afonso Leite and Javier de la Gándara from Vigo were placed leaders of the competition today tied on points, making Virazón de Miguel Lago, who was in the lead, fall to third position

· With several false starts and a general call on the water, the nervousness of a fleet that sees how the competition is approaching its end and tries to give everything to sneak into the positions of honor was felt this afternoon

· The entry into play of a discard allowed the sailboats to eliminate their worst result to date and left the intermediate positions of the classification very tight for the last two days to be played in March

 

Afonso Leite’s Miudo and Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen were placed leaders of the Infinitus Rent Trophy today after the celebration of the fourth round of the J80 competition that the Monte Real Club de Yates has been holding since the beginning of the year. Tied on 13 points at the top of the standings, Miudo and Okofen dropped Miguel Lago’s Virazón to third position, which was in the lead and remains, despite losing the lead, one of the clearest competitors for the trophy gold.

With several false starts and a general call, the nervousness of a fleet that sees how the competition is approaching its end, and tries to give everything to sneak into the positions of honor was palpable on the water this afternoon. Today’s was also an important day due to the entry into play of a discard, which allowed each sailboat to eliminate its worst result so far, changing the ranking quite a bit.

Although the forecasts announced a difficult day, with little wind for navigation, it finally remained quite stable, and with an average of 8 knots it allowed the fleet to dispute the three scheduled tasks. In the first, Guillermo Blanco’s Meltemi, from the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña, won; in the second, the Ferralemes, by Enrique Porto, from Monte Real; and in the third the Portuguese Miudo, from the We Do Sailing club.

With these results and with the discard coming into play, the classification, which Virazón had been leading, changed a lot and practically all the crews changed position. The provisional podium is currently occupied by Miudo, Okofen and Virazón, who are first, second and third respectively.

Fourth place is occupied, with 28 points, by Cansino, by Fernando Yáñez; and in fifth and sixth position are Guillermo Blanco’s Meltemi, with 31 points, and Luis de Mira’s Namasté, with 34. In the intermediate boxes, the short distance that separates a large part of the fleet predicts an exciting end to a trophy to which two new J80s were added today, Javier Martínez Valente’s Cunichán; and the Boi de Canto of the vice-commodore of Monte Real, Genoveva Pereiro.

Once the halfway point of the competition has been passed, the Infinitus Rent Trophy has only two days left to define the winners’ podium. The next one will be held in fifteen days, on March 10, and the 24th will be the final day. For this last stage, a fellowship dinner is also scheduled at the facilities of the Monte Real Yacht Club and the awards ceremony for the winners.

Portuguese victory at the premiere of the Infinitus Rent Trophy

 

 

· The Portuguese crew of the Miudo of the We Do Sailing club won the first day of the Infinitus Rent Trophy that was held in Baiona

· El Cansino by Fernándo Yáñez del Monte Real and La Galera by Rosario García from the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña were placed in second and third position

· The Monte Real Yacht Club Winter League lived up to its name and offered a typical winter day with leaden skies, cold and rain

 

The Miudo of the We Do Sailing club, skippered by the Portuguese Afonso Leite, scored the first podium of the Infinitus Trophy this Saturday in Baiona after winning on the opening day of the championship organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club.

The Winter League of the Baiona club lived up to its name and presented itself to the J80 fleet with a typical winter day, with leaden skies, cold and rain. Despite the unfavorable conditions, the sailors came out wanting to make their debut in the first regatta of the year, and the committee forced, with considerable difficulty, the celebration of two tasks, in which a very shifty and low-intensity wind prevailed.

With the two courses shortened in the second passage through the windward buoy, the fleet achieved very different results. The first heat was won by Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino, skippered today by the former two-time Galician vaurien champion, Castor Alonso. In the second baton the crew lost some steam and finished fourth, finally falling to second place overall.

The victory of the second round was signed by the Portuguese Miudo, with a victory that, added to the fourth place achieved in the first round, gave them the provisional gold of the championship. The bronze went to the J80 La Galera, skippered by Rosario García, from the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña.

Miguel Lago’s Virazón, who returned to the J80 competitions in Baiona after several months racing in the 6m class, is in fourth place and very close to him, just one point away, is Juan Luis Tuero’s Luna Nueva .

Completing the Monte Real Winter League classification are the Meltemi by Guillermo Blanco, the Pazo de Cea by María Campos, the Namasté by Luis de Mira and the Marina Real by Joaquin Cobelo. Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen, who had finished the tests in second position, fell to tenth place after the resolution of a protest against him.

Below him, Yago González-Robatto’s Cormorant II, Francisco J. Martínez’s SND Cormorant, Bernardo Macedo’s Mondo, Enrique Porto’s Ferralemes and Manuel Maria Cunha’s Marías.

The Infinitus Rent Trophy returns to Baiona at the end of the month, with the second day of tests on Saturday, January 25.
