The Okofen of Javier de la Gándara from Vigo was placed at the head of the Baitra J80 Winter League this Saturday after winning two of the three tests with which the competition was inaugurated. The crew came with a thorn in their side after having missed the Autumn League and convincingly demonstrated why they are one of the best teams in the running and one of the clear contenders for the final victory.

Those of De la Gándara haggled with ease and managed to get, in many moments, a significant distance from the rest of the fleet. In fact, in the first heat they crossed the finish line with great comfort separated from the rest.

Somewhat more complicated was the second test, in which they gave prominence to Alboroto, led by the former Spanish champion of the class, Javier Aguado. The sailboat was the fastest to take the buoys and to reach the finish line, winning the heat and leaving Okofen in second place.

But the Gándara crew was not willing to let the long-awaited victory slip away and took advantage of the third and last test of the day to sentence the classification with another first place. And so, with partial 1-2-1, it was how Okofen won the first victory of the Winter League, which the Monte Real Club de Yates organizes until next April thanks to the sponsorship of Baitra Accesorios Navales .

Along with the Okofen and the Alboroto, the other outstanding sailboat of the day was the Marías of the Portuguese Manel Cunha, who always remained very close to the first positions. They finished with results of 2-3-3 and third place in the provisional standings, but if they keep up their good work, they will undoubtedly be one of the crews to take into account in the coming days.

The Marías and the Okofen, which alternated the provisional podiums during the five days that the competition lasted, finished first and second with 8 and 9 points, a minimal separation of just one point that demonstrates the great quality of both crews, who fought until the end to hang the laurels.

The bronze of the championship went to the Cansino, another of the boats that knew how to maintain itself throughout the league in the positions of honor thanks to the balance that involved the good work of the young Alejandra Suárez from Vigo and the boards and experience of Nano Yáñez and Ignacio Sánchez Otaegui.

El Cansino came third in the standings and on the last day consolidated that position with 22 points, 16 points above fourth-placed Luis de Mira’s Namasté (38 points). Fifth place went to Bernardo Macedo’s Mondo, with 41 points.

Marías, Okofen, Cansino, Namasté and Mondo finally made up the TOP 5 of a competition that experienced very complicated days due to the weather, with suspensions, postponements, shortenings, waiting times, route changes, calls to the general classification, protests… there were everything from the beginning and the end was no different.

In the last stage, held this Saturday, only one of the three tests on the program could be held. A second was started, but could not be completed due to a drop in the wind. The winner of the sleeve was Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Fuss.

This Saturday the regattas return to Baiona thanks to the AEDAS Homes J80 Autumn League, which will live its second day starting at three in the afternoon in the waters of the bay. The Galician fleet of 8 meter monodesigns will face, if the weather permits, three new tests that will continue to define the classification of the championship organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates.

With three victories in the three races played on the first day, Javier de la Gándara placed his Okofen, with 3 points, at the top of the provisional classification. With 7 points, he is followed, in second position, by the young Portuguese Manel Cunha’s Marías, another of the prominent names among the J80 fleet and one of those who will give the most trouble, for sure, to achieve the final victory.

Closing the provisional podium in third position, with 12 points, we find El Cansino skippered by Alejandra Suárez, one of the women who is giving the most impetus to the women’s section of the J80 fleet, since just a few days ago she managed, also on board of an 8 meters, the silver medal in the final of the National Women’s Sailing League.

Except for last minute changes, the forecast for the sailing day is quite good. Winds from the southwest of between 9 and 10 knots with peaks of up to 12 are expected, which initially should allow the three scheduled races to be held.

They will be, as usual, windward leeward double lap courses and, if they are completed successfully, the participants will have the option of discarding their worst result, which could leave surprises in the classification.

In the last stage, held this Saturday, De la Gándara and his team, who had been in first position since the second day of testing, managed to maintain their good numbers. They crossed the finish line ahead of the entire fleet in the two regattas of the day, one held inside the Bay of Baiona and the other in the Carallones area, both with a north-westerly wind that moved between 7 and 14 knots.

Okofen finished with 10 points in the general classification, with 6 and 16 points ahead of the second and third classified, demonstrating once again why it is one of the best J80 currently sailing in Galicia.

The silver of the competition went to the Alboroto de Juan Carlos Ameneiro, in which the Spanish J80 champion, Javier Aguado, sailed again this last day. With two second places in the partials of the last day, he did not manage to snatch the victory from Okofen but he did stay in the second place on the podium. It was another favorite and it did not disappoint.

The Marías of the Portuguese Manel María, who came third from the previous day, managed to consolidate the bronze position, leaving few surprises in the top positions of the Baitra J80 Winter League, with a trio of aces that barely gave his competitors a break, occupying practically from the beginning the highest positions in the classification.

Among the rest of the 19 participants, Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino and José Luis Pérez’s Maija were the most outstanding. They slipped into the Top 5 with 26 and 31 points respectively, quite far from the rest of the sailboats.

The Okofen maintains its dominance over the J80

 

Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen reaffirmed this Saturday in Baiona its leadership in the Baitra J80 Winter League organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates

· The sailboat signed a first and a second place in the quarters of the third day and after discarding its worst result it separates from its direct rivals

· El Alboroto and El Marías will arrive in second and third position on the fourth and penultimate day that will be held on May 15

 

Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen maintains its dominance over the J80 that compete in the Baitra Winter League of the Monte Real Club de Yates. The sailboat led by the ocean navigator not only reaffirmed its leadership in the competition this Saturday, but also managed to further separate itself from its rivals in the ranking.

With a first and a second place in the partials of the third day held this Saturday in the bay of Baiona, and after ruling out his worst result, the Okofen is 4 points behind its most direct competitor, the Uproar by Juan Carlos Ameneiro who is second with 12 points. Marías de Manel Marías closes the provisional podium with 17 points.

Okofen achieved this new victory on a complicated day due to the wind, which had a hard time picking up intensity. The first test that was started, with a slightly shorter route than usual so as not to risk too much, had to be canceled because the wind, which had started from the east with little force, fell completely, leaving the measurements to zero .

Turned into an oil pond, the stage was announced as very complicated to hold a race, but the regatta committee did not give up and kept the sailboats in the water for some time hoping to give them at least one more start.

Finally he succeeded with a north wind of about 6 knots on average, with which the fleet was able to play up to two tests, the fifth and sixth so far in the competition. In both, the sailboats made the usual course, a windward leeward double turn; and with the last one, which the committee decided to cut to ensure their final, they were able to eliminate their worst result so far, something that made the classification dance.

There were some notable jumps, both up and down. The Cansino de Fernando Yáñez, a regular on the provisional podium, lost the third position he had brought from the previous day and fell to fourth; and La Galera, by Miguel Fernández, from the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña, signed the most spectacular climb, from tenth to fifth position, something he achieved thanks to his good performance this Saturday, with a first and fourth place in the partial .

Okofen , with 7 points and the usual good work of De la Gándara, has many possibilities to win the gold of the competition, since, in addition, the margin of 6 points that he managed to get from his most direct rivals gives him some peace of mind .

Cansino and Namasté , very regular and with good performances throughout the league, remain tied on 13 points in second and third place respectively, and are the ones with the best chance, together with Okofen , of closing the league by ensuring a trophy.

In the middle part of the classification everything is very open since there are many jacks grouped in a very narrow point band. Carlos Hernández’s Miudo is fourth with 18 points, followed by Bernardo Macedo’s Mondo , Juan Luis Tuero’s Luna Nueva and María Campos’ Pazo de Cea with 20, 21 and 22 points respectively.

With this panorama in the provisional classification tomorrow, Saturday, the last day will be held with a forecast of good wind to celebrate the three final tests. At the end in the water, the awards ceremony on land and a seafood dinner for the participants.
