The winter one-design competition organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club celebrates this Saturday the third of the six scheduled days
Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen is at the top of the classification followed by Alboroto and Marías who are second and third
· The tests for the 18 contenders for the title of winner will begin at three in the afternoon and the forecasts announce good wind for navigation
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 regatera day for the 18 contenders for the one-design winter title will begin at three in the afternoon in the waters of the Bay of Baiona.
· The winter league for 8-meter monotypes is the first event in the Monte Real Club de Yates regatta calendar, which this year includes 12 competitions distributed between January and December

The Monte Real Club de Yates inaugurates its 2022 sports calendar this Saturday with the celebration of the first day of the Baitra J80 Winter League. The 8-meter monotypes are once again the protagonists of a championship that will be held in six stages until next April.
With three races per day, the nearly twenty participating sailboats will compete in a total of 18 regattas, which may be of the windward-leeward type, with two upwind and two stern; or coastal, with routes to be determined each day of competition. In what all the days will coincide will be at the start time, at three in the afternoon; and in the location of the outlet, inside the Bay of Baiona.

Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen and Manel Cunha’s Marías, both from the MRCYB, will go out on the water ready to revalidate their champion titles from the previous editions of the Winter League and the Autumn League, respectively. They will be seen with other crews that usually end up either on the podium or just touching it, such as Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto, Alejandra Suárez’s Cansino, Castor Alonso’s Maija, Santiago Estévez’s Spaco, Bernardo Macedo’s Mondo or the Namaste by Luis de Mira.
In addition to the regattas, and with the sights set on the Spanish Championship of the class to be held in September in Baiona and the World Championship that Monte Real will organize in 2023, the regattas will include group training sessions, preparation of boats and strategy briefings before and after the competition. The goal is for the Galician fleet to arrive at the national and world events as prepared as possible.

· 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.

· Aboard Okofen, the skipper from Vigo has the best results in the Baitra J80 Winter League, which celebrates its last day in Baiona this Saturday
· De la Gándara and his crew reach the final stage in first position with 8 points followed by Alboroto with 12 points and Marías with 17 points
· The last three tests of the competition will be played from three in the afternoon and at half past eight the prizes will be awarded to the winners
The sailor from Vigo Javier de la Gándara and his crew from Okofen caress the final victory of the Baitra J80 Winter League, as they reach the last day of the competition, which is held this Saturday in Baiona, as leaders.
De la Gándara, his sons Jaime and Javier, and Okofen regular Diego Fernández lead the provisional standings with 8 points and, except for big mistakes or unexpected surprises that prevent them from maintaining the good track record up to now, they have many ballots to take the final victory.
Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Albotoro, who was joined on several days by the Spanish J80 champion, Javier Aguado, could avoid his victory. It is another of the J80s that has managed to chain very good results in the six tests held so far and could storm the first position of the league, since it occupies second place just 4 points behind Okofen.
Somewhat more difficult to finish as leader will be for the Portuguese crew of the Marías, led by Manel María, who is third with 17 points, 9 behind the leader and 5 behind the second. It will be difficult for him to win the laurels but he will almost certainly be among the top finishers.
Closing the Top 5 of the Baitra J80 Winter League and with aspirations to be able to sneak into a podium position are Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino, with 22 points; and La Galera by Miguel Fernández, with 24 points.
After the suspension of the penultimate day due to bad weather conditions, the Baitra J80 Winter League will celebrate its final stage this Saturday from three in the afternoon. The regatta committee hopes to be able to start the three tests planned in the program, and the sailboats will be left without being able to apply a new discard (of their worst result) because the six tests necessary to do so will not be held.
Once the competition in the water is over, the facilities of the Monte Real Club de Yates will host the awards ceremony for the winners, starting at half past seven. It will be attended by the general director of Baitra Accesorios Navales, Juan Carlos González, as sponsor of the event.
