· Deporte Galego will support for another year the Adapted Sailing School of the Monte Real Club de Yates for groups at risk of social exclusion
· The General Secretary for Sport of the Xunta de Galicia and the president of the MRCYB signed a collaboration agreement this morning
· In addition to people with functional diversity, the School provides services to the elderly, supervised children and women victims of gender violence
The Adapted Sailing School of the Monte Real Club de Yates has just received a new endorsement from the Xunta de Galicia. A collaboration agreement signed this Monday with Deporte Galego will allow the Baionese club to continue promoting activities with groups at risk of social exclusion.
The General Secretary for Galician Sports, José Ramón Lete Lasa, was in charge of ratifying with his signature the support that the regional administration will provide in 2023 to the School, created more than ten years ago under the motto “Sailing for all”. .
Although at first the objective was to offer people with functional diversity (with physical, sensory, intellectual or mental disabilities), the possibility of sailing and enjoying the sea in equal conditions, in recent years, the school’s activities have been been expanding to other groups at risk of social exclusion.
Currently, the proposals also extend to users of residences for the elderly in Galicia, children with behavioral problems, children under guardianship and women victims of sexist violence. With some of them, in addition to leisure and school activities, inclusions are made in high-level competitions, such as the Prince of Asturias Trophy, in which in recent editions an adapted boat has sailed.
The economic amount that the agreement signed with Deporte Galego will entail will allow the Bayonian club to consolidate one of its flagship projects, through which hundreds of students from different groups and associations in Galicia have passed since its creation in 2012.
Accompanying the General Secretary for Sport of the Xunta de Galicia, José Ramón Lete Lasa; and the president of the Monte Real Club de Yates, José Luis Álvarez; The vice president of the MRCYB, Alejandro Retolaza, was at the club this Monday; and the provincial head of Sports of the Xunta de Galicia, Daniel Benavides.

The National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia was a luxury spectator this May 1st of the last and decisive day of the Repsol Trophy · 45th Spring Regatta, which lived its last three races on Monday at the anchorage of the Cíes Islands.
As had happened in the two previous stages, Aeolus was hard pressed and the fleet had to wait this time for more than an hour and a half for the wind to make an appearance. It took time to appear, but once it appeared, it displayed very good conditions. The tests scheduled in the program were held, three routes in the form of a trapeze (two for the J80 and one for the ORCs) that would be decisive in order to make up the podiums of the different classes.
The champions of this forty-fifth edition were Sailway (CM Canido) in ORC 1-2-3, Deep Blue 2.1 (RCN Vigo) in ORC 4, Cinco Islas Albariño (CN Beluso) in ORC 5, Salaño Dos ( RCN Vigo) in A Two, Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen (MRCYB) in J80 and Tutatis (MRCYB) in Figaro. The latter also took the special prize for the best female crew.
In the ORC 1-2-3 class , with a 2-2-2 partial, Ramón Ojea’s Sailway (CM Canido), with Alejandro Pérez at the helm, managed to take the gold of the competition. His regularity in the three days of competition allowed him to overtake his rivals and climb to the top of the podium. Bon III (CN Punta Lagoa) made up for its disqualification on Sunday for being out of line with a first place this Monday. A new partial victory that, added to Saturday’s, gave him the silver trophy. They finished with 10 points tied with Narval led by José Antonio Portas (CN Vilagarcía), who finished third.
In the ORC 4 class , Vicente Cid’s Deep Blue 2.1 (RCN Vigo) gave his rivals neither a truce nor a chance. It was the best, without a doubt. He was full of victories and won, with 3 points, with a more than deserved first prize. The rest of the podium positions were occupied, with 7 and 8 points, by Luis García Trigo’s Unus (MRCYB) and Juan José Martínez’s La Burla Negra (CN Castrelo de Miño), second and third respectively.
Back on land, the skipper and leader of the Deep Blue 2.1, Vicente Cid, was enthusiastic about the success achieved in the regatta and the good work of his crew. “The soul of Deep Blue 2.1 is its team and without them this victory would not have been possible,” he said. We have been sailing together for many years, the understanding is complete and our goal is to continue adding victories. Last year we took the Count, the Rias and the Prince, and in this 2023 we do not want to achieve less “.
In the ORC 5 class, where the first two races had left very tight results at the top of the table, the regatta was also resolved in a very tight way. It ended with the final victory of Cinco Islas Albariño, led by Iñaki Carbajo (CN Beluso), tied on 8 points with second place, Nahela led by Víctor Manuel Álvarez (CD Alagua), and just half a point away from third place, Squid II by Francisco Lusquiños (CN Portonovo).
In the A2 class, the Salaño Dos of Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure (RCN Vigo), was the only boat together with the Deep Blue that prevailed in each and every one of the races disputed. He finished with three partial gold medals and the laurels of the spring trophy. The silver went to the Aquilón of Roberto Telle and Genoveva Pereiro (MRCYB) and the bronze to the Asante Sana of Juan Carlos Trabazos and Joaquín Dasilva (LM Bouzas).
The J80 class reached the final day led by Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen, tied on points with Javier Aguado’s Alboroto. On the day’s program, like the ORCs, two trapeze-format tests in which no one could fail if they wanted to take the laurels. Finally, a first and a second in the sleeves tipped the balance in favor of Okofen, allowing him to climb to the top of the podium. El Alboroto was weighed down to third position by a ninth place that he signed in one of the tests and Manel Cunha’s Marías passed him, taking silver.
Although they competed within the ORC-4 class, the Figaros del Monte Real also had their own category in the awards ceremony of this forty-fifth edition of the Spring Regatta. The winners of this edition were Paula Rey’s Tutatis, Elena Raga’s Ladeira and Julia Correa’s Erizana. El Tutatis also won the prize for the best female crew in the competition.
The Spanish Sportboat Championship of the North Zone was finally deserted since no crew wanted to compete for the national title that the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation put into play within the framework of the Repsol Trophy.
The next appointment with the regattas of the Monte Real Club de Yates will be on June 10 with the Galician A Dos Championship, which will once again be the MRW Trophy and will include the Rafael Olmedo Memorial, in homage to the historic president of the Baionese club. It is the twelfth consecutive year that the Baiones club organizes this regional event by delegation of the Royal Galician Sailing Federation.

SPECIAL AWARD TO THE BEST FEMALE CREW OF THE TROPHY
· With only one day to go until the end of the competition, the contenders for the title in the different categories of the Repsol Trophy fought tooth and nail for the coastal regatta between Combarro and Baiona held this Sunday
· Delays in the starts due to lack of wind, out of line, disqualifications and some protests marked a penultimate day that anticipates a lot of emotion for the final stage scheduled for this Monday
· The Deep Blue 2.1 in the ORC 4 class and the Salaño Dos in the A2 class were the only boats capable of repeating victory and adding two first places in the two races held
· The regatta program for the May Day holiday includes two trapeze-type events at the Cíes Islands anchorage and the prize-giving ceremony for the winners
With only one day left to go before the competition ends, the 50 boats that are taking part in the 45th Spring Regatta – Repsol Trophy on this May Day weekend fought tooth and nail on the coast between Combarro and Baiona held this Sunday in the Rías Baixas.
After more than two hours of waiting due to lack of wind inside the Pontevedra estuary, and with the fleet impatient because of their desire to haggle, the starts of the different classes (ORCs and J80) were not without controversy.
When the race committee honked for the ORCs, three boats from Vigo with title aspirations, Víctor Carrión’s Bon III, Julio Rodríguez’s Magical and the Pérez Canal brothers’ Aceites Abril, were out of line. The three had to resume the start to be able to continue in competition, but only two of them did. El Bon III, who had been leading the ORC 1-2-3 since the first day, failed to comply and was disqualified.
The J80s didn’t have a smooth start either. With 10 seconds left for the committee to start sailing towards Baiona, a large part of the fleet was already out of line due to a role of wind and the start had to be repeated. The field was readjusted and the black flag was raised, which would imply the disqualification of any boat that crossed the line during the minute before the start. The only boat affected was Antonio Francisco Gómez’s Arriscao, which was left out of the test.
After these incidents with the starts, sailing, with a couple of exceptions, was very tight, a clear sign of the crews’ desire to fight the regatta with all possible means and gain a place in the honorary positions of the classification.
Aceites Abril and Magical were always in the lead, with Yess Too at their stern without losing sight of them. The rest of the fleet sailed in a handkerchief along the Costa de la vela and the inner face of the Cíes archipelago and it was not until they reached Carallones, a mandatory beacon, that some began to mark positions and extend distances inland. the bay of Baiona, where the finish line was placed in front of the Parador Nacional.
In the ORC 1-2-3 class , the out-of-line of Bon III, who had been the leader of the previous day, made him fall to the last position. The stage victory went to Aceites Abril of the Pérez Canal, but Ramón Ojea’s Sailway overtook them in the general classification thanks to the two second places it achieved in the two tests held so far. Those from Canido are first followed by Aceites, Magical and Narval, which are tied on points in second, third and fourth position.
In the ORC 4 class , Vicente Cid’s Deep Blue 2.1 (RCN Vigo), the only one with two consecutive victories, is one of the most solvent boats in the competition. Two first places with which, if he manages to maintain his streak this Monday, he would win the trophy. The Unus of Luis García Trigo (MRCYB), with provisional silver; and La Burla Negra by Juan José Martínez (CN Castrelo de Miño), with bronze; second and third place were exchanged with respect to the previous day.
In the ORC class 5, the Balea Dous (RCN Rodeira) from Cangues, led by Luis Pérez, were the best of the day and having won the stage allowed them to rise to second place overall, in which Victor Manuel’s Nahela Álvarez (CD Alagua) is still in the lead. The Squid II of Francisco Lusquiños (CN Portonovo) is third.
In the A2 class , the Salaño Dos owned by Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure (RCN Vigo) is the other boat that, together with the Deep Blue, was able to repeat the victory on this second day. In this way, he consolidates his privileged position at the top of the provisional podium with the Aquilón by Roberto Telle and Genoveva Pereiro (MRCYB); and the Asante Sana by Juan Carlos Trabazos and Joaquin Dasilva (LM Bouzas) in the second and third drawer respectively.
In the J80 real-time competition, the Okofen was first across the finish line and this stage win allowed him to jump from third to first position. It holds the provisional gold with four points, the same as the Rampage, which remain in the silver position. In third position is Marías by Manel Cunha.
The 45th Spring Regatta – Repsol Trophy, which closed Sunday with a seafood dinner at the Monte Real Club de Yates, will come to an end this Monday, the May 1 holiday, with the last two races of the competition: two routes in the shape of a trapezoid that the entire fleet will compete in the anchorage of the Cíes Islands. In the afternoon, around half past six, the awards ceremony will be held, attended by Repsol’s Head of Marine and Fisheries, Inés González Megido; the mayor of Baiona, Carlos Gómez; the General Secretary for Sport of the Xunta de Galicia, José Ramón Lete Lasa; and the vice president of the MRCYB, Alejandro Retolaza.

· En la clase J80 el regreso del Okofen de Javier de la Gándara tras unos meses en stand by y el sorpasso del Solventis Ribadeo de Manuel Jiménez fueron los aspectos más destacados de la primera etapa disputada este sábado
· La 45º Regata de Primavera supuso el estreno en competición del nuevo combustible 100% renovable, elaborado a base de residuos y con cero emisiones de Repsol, que surtió a las embarcaciones de apoyo de la regata
· The Repsol del Monte Real Trophy has two days ahead of it: the Sunday coastal return from Combarro to Baiona and the trapezes scheduled for Monday’s holiday in the area of the Cíes islands anchorage
The 45th Spring Regatta – Repsol Trophy began to define its classifications this Saturday after the first of the three days of competition that will be held in the Rías Baixas until next Monday under the organization of the Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona.
In this first stage, the route for the 50 participating boats was the little more than 23 miles that separate the Baionesa bay from the interior of the Pontevedra estuary, a route that the fastest boats completed in almost four and a half hours, on a cloudy day, with mist , some occasional showers and a wind not too intense but enough not to stall the fleet.
The largest boats, grouped in the ORC 1-2-3 class , were the fastest to complete the slightly over 23-mile run between Baiona and Combarro. The Magical of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, skippered by Julio Rodríguez, crossed the finish line first after 4 hours and 22 minutes of sailing. The Swan 42 managed to win in real time against Yess Too owned by Rui Ramada (MRCYB) and Aceites Abril owned by the Pérez Canal brothers (RCN Vigo), both Swan 45s.
The three of them remained at the head of the fleet throughout the entire journey, with different strategies and different board choices but with very similar results. Behind them, two smaller boats, Víctor Carrión’s Bon III (CN Punta Lagoa) and Ramón Ojea’s Sailway (CM Canido) stood out for their good work in the regatta. Despite having less length, they did not lose sight of the largest at any time and this benefited them when the race committee compensated the times, allowing them to finish first and second respectively. The third box on the provisional podium is occupied by the Narval of José Antonio Portas (CN Vilagarcía).
In the ORC class 4 , one of the tightest, where a large part of the fleet sailed without achieving large margins over its closest rivals, took victory one of the crews who are regulars on the podiums of the competitions in the Rías Baixas, the Deep Blue of Vicente Cid (RCN Vigo). He achieved victory in the first stage, beating La Burla Negra by Juan José Martínez (CN Castrelo de Miño) and Unus by Luis García Trigo (MRCYB) who, pending what happens in the next two days, hold the silver and the provisional bronze.
The ORC 5 class dispute was resolved with the victory of Nahela, the guard boat skippered by Víctor Manuel Álvarez (CD Alagua). Two crews from the Morrazo area, Iñaki Carbajo’s Cinco Islas Albariño (CN Beluso) and Luis Pérez’s Balea Dous (RCN Rodeira) will fight to snatch the first position from the second and third place they achieved this Saturday.
In the A2 class , the couple formed by Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure, recent winners of the CdeC Trophy in the same category, once again showed their four-handed navigation skills, winning on this first day with Salaño Dos, from Real Vigo Yacht Club. Along with them, only one other boat finished the test, the Aquilón of Roberto Telle and Genoveva Pereiro, from the Monte Real Club de Yates.
In the J80 class , one of the news of the day was the return to competition, after a few months on standby, of Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen. With his usual crew, the skipper from Vigo showed that he had not lost steam, making it very difficult for Javier Aguado’s Alboroto, who started as favourite. Both maintained an intense one-on-one, very close throughout the entire course and at the head of the fleet. But in the last section, already towards the interior of the Pontevedra estuary, Solventis Ribadeo, owned by Manuel Jiménez, gave the surprise of the day. He picked up a great pace and passed them all, taking more and more distance from them. He finished first and took the stage victory ahead of Alboroto and Okofen, who came second and third respectively.
This first day of the Monte Real Spring Regatta, which ended with a snack and a concert in Combarro, marked the debut in competition of Repsol’s new fuel , 100% renewable and with zero emissions. The support boats of the Bayonés club went out into the water with this fuel made from waste, with which the energy company seeks to reduce its carbon footprint. For Monte Real it was the first test of a fuel that the club hopes to be able to use in the J80 World Cup that it is organizing next September.
Before that, it will be used again this Sunday and Monday in the two days that remain for the Repsol Trophy. The Sunday stage will mean the return of the fleet to Baiona from Combarro. The start, if the weather allows it, will be given at twelve noon and the participants will have 23 miles ahead of them with a reverse route to that of the opening day. In the afternoon, once the race is over, the crews will be able to enjoy a seafood dinner in the Monte Real gardens before the final stage on Monday.

The Monte Real Club de Yates successfully launched its 2023 cruise season this Saturday with the celebration of the CdeC – Amura Trophy, which brought together more than fifty sailboats from the main Galician yacht clubs in the Rías Baixas.
The competition took place on a double stage, along the Pontevedra and Vigo estuaries, with departures from the vicinity of the Marina Combarro and the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, which collaborated with the Bayonés club in the sporting event.
The smallest fleet, the one that left Combarro, was also the earliest. Seven boats started five minutes after noon with conditions that coincided with the reports provided by the committee. A south-westerly wind above ten knots that made it easier for them to push towards Baiona.
Two boats, the Narval from the Club Náutico de Vilagarcía, skippered by José Antonio Portas; and the Nahela of the Alagua Sports Club (A Guarda), led by Víctor Manuel Álvarez; they quickly took the lead, leaving the rest of the boats at their stern during the entire course. They kept up a very interesting one-on-one until the end, but the time compensation gave Ronáutica Marinas, led by Jorge Carneiro (CN San Telmo), the final victory. Nahela finished second and the Cinco Islas Albariño of Iñaki Carbajo (CN Beluso) closed the podium in third position.
The fleet that departed from Combarro covered a total of 23 miles and the route for the boats that departed from Vigo, which heard the departure horn just after two in the afternoon with 17 knots from the southeast, was 12 miles.
The fastest to complete that distance was Yess Too, owned by Rui Ramada, from Monte Real, which took just over two hours to cross the finish line. The outstanding Portuguese skipper was the fastest but the time compensation made him fall to third position behind Bon III of Víctor Carrión (CN Punta Lagoa) and Magical of Julio Rodríguez (RCN Vigo), who stayed at the gates to revalidate the victory of the previous edition.
Thus, the ORC 1-2-3 class winners’ podium was configured, one of the five that entered the competition on the Vigo-Baiona route. In ORC 4, the steps of the podium were covered by the Deep Blue 2.1 of Vicente Cid (RCN Vigo), who achieved gold; La Burla Negra by Juan José Martínez (CN Castrelo de Miño), who won the silver; and the bronze remained in Baiona thanks to the good performance of Jean Claude Sarrade’s Fend la Bise.
There was also a category A Two, for teams made up only of a skipper and a crew member, in which Salaño Dos of the couple formed by Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure (RCN Vigo) won, a very well-matched duo that for years has It has very well taken measures for this type of navigation. In second and third position were the Bonaventure of José Luis Ríos and María Jesús Montes (RCN Vigo); and the Aquilón by Roberto Telle and Genoveva Pereiro (MRCYB).
The J80 monotypes, the largest fleet (23 units) and unrelated to time compensation, competed in real time and their dispute ended with Alboroto at the top of the podium. A new victory for one of the boats that is postulated as favorites of the Galician fleet for the J80 world championship.
The crew, led by Juan Carlos Ameneiro, surpassed his clubmate, Fernando Yáñez, aboard the Cansino; and Kotablue Fibra Coruña 14/18 led by Esteban Martínez de la Escalera, from RCN A Coruña.
The other one-design fleet, the Figaros, which competed within the ORC-4 category, also had its own classification, which was configured with Walter Pedro Sequeiros’ Bouvento in first position and Pilar Cid’s Tutatis in second.
The latter, the Tutatis, took the prize for the best female crew, an award that the Monte Real Club de Yates has established in practically all its competitions within the framework of its Women’s Sailing program, with which it intends to increase the presence of women in the regattas that are held in Galicia.
Once the competition was resolved and the final classifications published, the facilities of the Bayonés club hosted the awards ceremony for the winners, an act that was presided over by the General Director of the CdeC Group and sponsor of the event, Carlos Calo; the mayor of Baiona, Carlos Gómez; and the vice president of the MRCYB, Alejandro Retolaza.
After saying goodbye to this first big date with the cruisers, at Monte Real they already have everything ready for their next regatta, which arrives in just a few days. The forty-fifth edition of its classic Spring Regatta, which once again is the Repsol Trophy, will be held next weekend, coinciding with the May Day holiday.

Since its creation in 2012, hundreds of students from groups and associations from different parts of Galicia have passed through it to navigate the bay of Baiona in the club’s adapted boats.

This Friday the most important nautical event to be held in Galicia and one of the most important in Spain throughout this year was presented at the International Tourism Fair (FITUR): the MUNDIAL J80 BAIONA 2023.
Under the organization of the Monte Real Club de Yates, the Galician Rías Baixas will bring together, from September 18 to 24, the best J80 sailors in the world, who will compete in this great international event in 80 sailboats from different countries of the 5 continents .
After passing through Denmark (2021) and the United States (2022), this will be the first time that the world championship of the class will come to Galicia, a community that has been betting on these one-designs for years, with one of the most important fleets of Spain.
In the presentation of the event, the president of the Monte Real Club de Yates, José Luis Álvarez, said he felt a mixture of pride and responsibility after having been chosen to organize “such a prestigious event, which will put the focus of the sailing world in Galicia he said . “We will once again demonstrate our club’s ability to organize major events and Galicia’s potential to host top-level sports competitions, offering visitors a unique environment,” he assured.

The J80 Baiona 2023 World Cup arrives at the Monte Real Club de Yates just one year after hosting the prestigious 52 SUPER SERIES. “Despite the notable differences between one fleet and the other, and one competition and the other, there are several links between the two that we particularly like -says the MRCYB commodore, Ignacio Sánchez Otaegui-, and it is that they are one-designs that compete in real time and with short and intense tracks, in which the tests acquire great emotion and are disputed with great rivalry. The show is guaranteed”.
This morning’s staging at the Galicia FITUR stand included the projection of a promotional video for the event and the announcement of the launch of the specific website for the World Cup:
It was the starting signal for an appointment that will be presented shortly at the Monte Real Club de Yates, in a call in which all the details of this great nautical event will be announced.

· The J80 led by Juan Carlos Ameneiro managed to climb to the top of the Monte Real Club de Yates one-design league podium this Saturday, which has been taking place in Baiona since last October
This victory is the perfect finishing touch for the crew to a spectacular season in which they became Spanish J80 Champions and managed to win the Conde de Gondomar, Repsol and Comunica trophies
· The sights of the crew that under the leadership of Ameneiro complete Javier Aguado, Javier Lago and Juan Lago are already set on the J80 World Championship to be held next year in Baiona
· Bruno Gago’s Solventis Ribadeo and Chisco Catalán’s Bica won the silver and bronze medals of the Gestilar J80 Autumn League with which the MRCYB closes its 2022 sports calendar
Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto won this Saturday the Gestilar J80 Autumn League that had been taking place since last October in Baiona Bay under the organization of the Monte Real Club de Yates.
He did it, moreover, forcefully, achieving two victories in the two tests held and being, once again, the best of the stage, something he had already achieved in four of the five days that included the one-design group, having only escaped the triumph of the third phase at the hands of Solventis Ribadeo.
The team that under the leadership of Ameneiro completes Javier Aguado, Javier Lago and Juan Lago, was undoubtedly the best in the championship. He ended up with partial scores of 1-1-1-8-4-2-2-1-1 and 21 points in the final standings; and received his award from the delegate of Gestilar in Galicia, Alfonso López; and the president of the Monte Real Club de Yates, José Luis Álvarez.
The award was the perfect finishing touch to a spectacular season. El Alboroto began 2022 with the disappointment that the Winter League escaped them at the hands of Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen, but from second position, he made it very clear that this season he was going to wage war in the water. And so he did.
In April they won the Comunica Trophy, in May the Repsol Trophy, and in July the Conde de Gondomar Trophy. They were the appetizers of one of the key calls of the season for the J80 fleet, the Spanish Championship, in which they had all their sights set. They went all out and did not disappoint, becoming national class champions.
Now, with this new victory in the Gestilar J80 Autumn League, the Rampage closes 2022 with a more than positive annual balance. Its leader, Juan Carlos Ameneiro, was very satisfied for having more than met -he said- expectations. “We have been improving month by month and we have also done so within a fleet that is increasingly competitive. The truth is that it has been a very good year and we are very happy with the results”.
El Alboroto says goodbye to the year with the feeling of homework done, but already announces that, after the well-deserved rest from the impasse of the Christmas holidays, he will return with more enthusiasm if possible to the competitions. In their sights they have the great event of the 2023 J80 World Cup, which the Monte Real Club de Yates will organize in September in Baiona. It is the first world championship of the class to be held in Galicia and the Ameneiro crew hopes to achieve a great result.
“We have a very close team -says Ameneiro- with a very firm structure, which we have maintained and will continue to maintain without variations for the World Cup. The hard core is formed and now what interests us is to continue advancing in some aspect in which we can still give more of ourselves, such as sailing in stronger winds”.
Until then, Ameneiro’s men will continue to face off against the large J80 fleet that has been revealed in this latest edition of the Gestilar J80 Autumn League, one of the most competitive in recent years.
After five days and ten events held, and after first place for Alboroto (21 points), the winners’ podium was completed by Solventis Ribadeo led by Bruno Gago, César Conde, Sebastián Hermida and Manuel Javier Álvarez (33 points); and Bica de Chisco Catalán, Laureano and Jaime Wizner and Jesús González-Llanos (48 points). They hung the silver and bronze and received their trophies from the Sports deputy of the Pontevedra Provincial Council, Gorka Gómez; and the Councilor for Sports of Baiona, Andrea Pérez.
Fourth and fifth position went to Nano Yáñez’s Cansino (52 points) and Nicolás Ángel Álvarez’s Pezoas (77 points), the latter being the boat, together with Guillermo Blanco’s I3D Atlántico, in sixth position, the best Results were obtained from those who are not part of the Baiona J80 fleet, since they sail under the pennants of the Redes Maritime Club and the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña respectively.
Among the teams that failed to sneak into the podium or Top 5 positions, the Marías of the Portuguese Manel Cunha deserves special recognition, for which his late entry into the competition (he joined the league months after it started ), weighed him down to ninth position, despite having quasi-perfect partials of 1-1-1-1-2-2 in the tests he played.
Thus, with the closure of the Gestilar J80 Autumn League, the Monte Real Club de Yates also closes its 2022 sports calendar, in which having brought the TP52 SUPER SERIES to Galicia, and celebrated the Championships of España de J80, cruisers and women’s sailing, were some of the most outstanding events, along with the traditional Conde de Gondomar, Príncipe de Asturias (and National Sailing Awards), Comunica and Repsol Trophy, Galician Championship of A Dos and the non-competitive Rías Baixas Route.

· Several unexpected conditions made the third day of the Monte Real one-design championship one of the most exciting so far
· After not having participated in the first two stages, the Marías of the Portuguese Manel Cunha joined the competition this Saturday, beating the rest of the fleet in the two tests held
· An off-line in the second test of the day caused Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto to lose the leadership, which was relegated to second position behind Alberto García’s Solventis Ribadeo
· In addition to the arrival of Marías and the disqualifications for being out of line, the entry into play of a discard further adjusted the table of a league that announces excitement until the end
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.
These are the new figures in the boxes of a competition that is getting more and more exciting. The Gestilar J80 Autumn League returns to the waters of Baiona Bay on December 3 to put into play the fourth and penultimate of the five stages that the competition includes in this 2022. Three new tests on the program and three new opportunities for the crews to demonstrate their aspirations towards the achievement of the autumn title.

· 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.

The Spanish Maritime Sports League has awarded the Baionese club this decoration for its “exemplary professional career”
“Commitment, tenacity, leadership and exemplary work for society” were some of the aspects valued
The president of the club, José Luis Álvarez, was in charge of collecting the cross at a seafood meal held at the Casino Principal in Guadalajara
The Monte Real Club de Yates has just been distinguished with the cross of sports nautical merit awarded annually by the Spanish Maritime Sports League (Spanish Federation of Naval Leagues). “Commitment, tenacity, leadership and exemplary work for society” were some of the aspects valued when granting the Baionese club this distinction, which rewards, according to the opinion, a “exemplary career path”.
This new recognition comes to Monte Real Club de Yates in one of the most prolific years of recent decades, in which it not only hosted the prestigious TP52 SUPER SERIES, but was also responsible for organizing the J80 Spanish Championship, the Spanish Cruise Championship and the Final of the Women’s National Sailing League, in addition to all the regattas included in its usual sports calendar, among which the Prince of Asturias Trophy stands out, with the National Sailing Awards; and the Count of Gondomar Trophy.
Its inclusive and adapted sailing activities (for women victims of sexist violence, people with functional diversity, children in care and children with behavioral problems) and its “Vela en feminine” project that has been seeking to promote women in the world for years of sailing, were other aspects valued when granting the club this recognition.
The president of the MRCYB, José Luis Álvarez, was in charge of collecting the distinction, this weekend, at a seafaring fellowship meal held at the Principal Casino in Guadalajara. The act, led by the President of the FELAN (Spanish Federation of Naval Leagues), José Carlos Tamayo, included the singing of Salve Marinera and a toast to His Majesty King Felipe VI, honorary president of Monte Real.
In addition to the nautical merit cross, José Luis Álvarez also collected diplomas and recognition pins for the rest of the Board of Directors of Monte Real, which includes Alejandro Retolaza (vice president), Ignacio Sánchez Otaegui (commodore), Francisco Pino (vice commodore), César Fernández-Casqueiro (secretary), Fernando Yáñez (treasurer), Miguel Font (member of facilities and projects), Margarita Cameselle (member of sporting events) and Genoveva Pereiro (member of foreign relations).
The decoration received by the club from Baiona is a golden Latin Cross, enameled in white, which bears in the center the circular shield of the Spanish Maritime League on a blue background and on its upper part some oak leaves that link it with a colored ribbon. Crimson red.
