REPORT: Half a century of Optimist in Galicia

REPORT BY ROSANA CALVO, HEAD OF COMMUNICATION AT MRCYB

 

· Five decades after having organized a regional Optimist competition for the first time in Galicia, the Monte Real Club de Yates celebrates this February in Baiona a new edition of the Galician Championship of the class

· On board the “Canario” and the “Tortuga” the brothers José and Javier de la Gándara together with Santiago Campos were the winners of that first edition of the competition held in the bay of Baiona on August 22 and 23, 1970

· In the Optimists brought first from France, then from Barcelona and finally built in the Ferramentas and in Lagos for the Sailing Schools of La Foz and the MRCYB, many current sailors learned to sail

· Although the materials have evolved over time, the philosophy with which the Optimist was created remains intact and remains a simple boat that allows the little ones to enjoy the sea and sailing

At the end of this month, the Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona will commemorate the half century of life of the Optimist class in Galicia by holding a new edition of the Galician Championship that the club itself hosted for the first time in 1970.

On board the “Canario” and the “Tortuga”, the brothers José and Javier de la Gándara were the winners (first and second respectively) of that first edition, which was held on August 22 and 23, 1970 under the name of “ I Regional Optimist Regattas – Galician Championship”.

17 young sailors from the Sailing School of La Foz, the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo, the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, the Club Náutico de Panxón and Monte Real itself met during those two summer days in the bay of Baiona to compete several tests in a triangular field of Olympic route.

After the Gándara brothers, third place on the podium of that first Optimist championship went to “Anduriña IV”, manned by Santiago Campos; Pablo Vasconcellos was fourth aboard the “Bayona II”; and “Don Ramón”, by Ramón Alonso, from RCN Vigo, signed the fifth position.
A special prize was then also awarded to the youngest sailor, which went to Pablito Pereiro for “demonstrating -according to the chronicles of the time- great skill handling his mini boat to perfection”.

With the celebration of the first Galician Optimist Championship, the Monte Real Club de Yates gave, at the beginning of the 70s, the great impulse for the consolidation of a class that arrived in Galicia some years before the hand of Pepe Gándara , the father of the historical Javier de la Gándara.

Gándara learned about this new type of boat in the American magazine “Popular Mechanics Magazine” (distributed in Spain under the name “Mecánica Popular”), in which some simple plans were published with which, in principle, anyone with some tools And with a bit of skill, you could make your own Optimist out of wood.

After seeing them already built in Barcelona, Gándara decided to bring them to Galicia. The first Optimist who sailed in Galician waters in the year 68, he called “Don Andrés”, in honor of his young son. In 1969 there were already 15 units of these new sailboats, known as the “Ferramentas”, because they were built by a carpenter from Ladeira known by that name, with sails of nylon manufactured in an awning company in Vigo. They were boats with which, during the first years, they only sailed in the summer months. Barely a year later, with the Optimists already established as a small fleet at the Monte Real Club de Yates, the First Galician Optimist Championship was held.

Press clipping of the First Optimist Championship of Galicia in 1970

The press at that time congratulated the Baionese club for “contributing to creating numerous young skippers who in the future will constitute the crews of the numerous cruise ships that the sports units of the Vigo estuary have”, it said verbatim. So it was. Because those children are today some of the outstanding sailors who sail in the Galician estuaries.

Both the Spanish Sailing Federation and the Galician Sailing Federation of the time, chaired by José Ramón Fontán, helped consolidate the class in Galicia by subsidizing the purchase of numerous units. Some boats that went from the 3,000 pesetas (about 18 euros) of the first “Ferramentas” to the 8,000 pesetas (about 48 euros) that were paid for those of higher quality and the 10,000 pesetas (60 euros) that they cost at the beginning of the 70s

In the autumn of 1971, only one year after the celebration of the first Optimist Galician championship, nearly thirty units participated in the class competitions in Baiona, and it did not take much longer for the optimist to exceed 60. In Galicia there were around 200 optimists (currently there are about 400, of which about 120 participate in official competitions). Among the young sailors of those early years were José, Ángel and Javier de la Gándara, Pablo Vasconcellos, Jaime Varela, Alberto Torné, Rodrigo Andrade, César Casqueiro, Fernando Yáñez, Genoveva Pereiro, Ignacio Retolaza, Alfonso Zulueta and Piluca Presa, among others. Many.

The Spanish Optimists were built in Barcelona (La Industrial Velera Marsal), in Palma de Mallorca (the Copino and Darder shipyards), in Torrejón de Ardoz (Spanish Taylor) and here in Galicia, in the prestigious Lagos de Bouzas Shipyard (Vigo), from which a large part of the units that sailed from the year 70 left. They were Optimist that were made in the image and likeness of the first boats of this type born in Clearwater (Florida).

There, in 1947, a group of children “haggled” through the streets of Clearwater with small boxes of soap and a candle that they made themselves. The mayor of the city decided to ban these races in the streets, so that they would not bother people, but he met with a boat designer, Clark Mills, and asked him to turn the soap boxes into a boat for children as soon as possible. cheap possible.

And that is how the Optimist was born, the first gaff sailing boat and a single crew member that over time became increasingly famous, both nationally and internationally. In 1954 “the puddle jumped” and the first ones in Europe began to be built, specifically in Denmark; in 1962 the Optimist Class Racing Association was born in England; and soon after the European Optimist Association was formed. Finally, in 1995 the Optimist was accepted as an international class.

Although the materials with which they are built have evolved over time, the truth is that both the shape of the Optimist and its philosophy remain intact. It was born as a simple boat that would allow children to enjoy the sea and sailing and, more than half a century later, that purpose has not changed.

Celebrating this idea and the five decades since the first Optimist Championship held in Galicia in 1970 is the aim of the Galician Optimist Championship – Baitra Trophy that will be held at the Monte Real Club de Yates at the end of February.

Monte Real launches 6 summer proposals to learn to sail and enjoy the sea in Baiona

· The Monte Real summer campaign includes six proposals so that children and adults can learn to sail and enjoy the sea in Baiona

· Daytime sailing camps and weekly dinghy sailing courses are the proposals aimed at the smallest of the house between 7 and 16 years old

· For adults, the Baionese club offers the possibility of taking weekly cruise sailing courses and courses to learn to sail in one day.

Sailing activities at sunset or sailing to the Cíes Islands are aimed at a more familiar audience or groups of friends

The Monte Real Club de Yates has just launched its summer sailing campaign, which includes six proposals with which children and adults can learn to sail and enjoy the sea in Baiona during the months of July, August and September.

For the youngest members of the household, aged between 7 and 16, the Baionese club organizes Weekly light sailing courses , in the morning or afternoon, so that children can have a first contact with sailing or improve their technique with different types of boats if they already know how to sail.

There are also Day Sailing Camps for them, somewhat more complete than the weekly courses, since they include more hours of sailing, both in the morning and in the afternoon, and food service. It is a proposal aimed above all at those families who find it somewhat more difficult to reconcile during the summer and want their children to enjoy and learn in a relaxed atmosphere.

For those over 16 years of age, Monte Real offers weekly cruising sailing courses , also with the option to choose a morning or afternoon schedule. Always accompanied by a coach from the club, with these courses the students learn to sail in the calm waters of the bay of Baiona and end up going out to the open sea to perfect their knowledge on board the sailboat.

And for those who want to learn to sail but do not have a week to attend the course, Monte Real also offers Courses to learn to sail in one day . During a day, from morning to afternoon, the participants will be able to learn the basic maneuvers to handle a boat.

Sailing to the Cíes Islands or at sunset are other proposals from the Monte Real Yacht Club for this summer, aimed above all at families or groups of friends who want to enjoy sailing while learning sailing concepts.

In the case of Sailing to the Cíes Islands, it is a one-day activity, from eleven in the morning to seven in the evening, which includes a sailing trip to the archipelago during which you learn to sail and disembark on the island to eat and have a guided visit to the natural park.

Between July and September there is also the possibility of Sunset Sailing , an activity with which to discover the keys to handling a sailing vessel as the day falls. It lasts three hours and will be offered from July to September.

There are six proposals for the summer season with which the Monte Real Yacht Club wants to bring the world of sailing closer to all those who want to learn about this sport, improve their practice or simply enjoy sailing along the Vigo estuary.

To receive more information or reserve a place in any of the activities, you can call 986 385 000 or write an email to secretaria@mrcyb.com .

The Monte Real Club de Yates inaugurates its 2019 cruise season this Easter with the celebration, next Holy Saturday, of the Comunica Trophy, a coastal regatta between Vigo and Baiona that the participating sailboats will compete in starting at two in the afternoon .

It will be at that time that the regatta’s starting horn will be heard in front of the facilities of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, which once again collaborates with Monte Real in organizing the competition.

From Vigo to Baiona, the Comunica Trophy fleet will have to complete a 15-mile route in which, according to forecasts, a favorable wind will remain, some strong enough to allow them to complete the route without incident. The regatta will also be held on a fairly clear day, with pleasant temperatures between 18 and 20 degrees, and little sea.

Among the participating fleet are some of the winners of the previous edition, who will seek to revalidate victory. This is the case of the Portuguese Rui Ramada, who in 2018 won the victory of his class aboard the MBA Atlántico and who this time will participate at the controls of the Yess Too.

The J80 national title in contention

 

· Cantabria, the Balearic Islands, Galicia and the Basque Country will participate in the contest for the national J80 that will be held until May 1 in the waters of Baiona

· The Galicians De la Gándara and Lago, the Cantabrian Piris or the Balearic Chacártegui and Aguado are among the favorites to win the title

· After a day of measurements and revisions, tomorrow, Saturday, the competition begins in the framework of the 41st Spring Regatta of the Monte Real Yacht Club

· In addition to the national J80, the Galician Rías Baixas will host until May 1 the cruiser, Figaros and J70 competitions for the Repsol Trophy

 

Traditionally, the J80 class does not sell its national and international titles cheaply and everything indicates that the XII Spanish J80 Championship, which will be held starting tomorrow Saturday in Baiona as part of the Repsol Trophy of Monte Real, is going to present a tough contest between the boats that will haggle for the scepter.

Cantabria with four J80 monotypes, the Balearic Islands with two, Galicia with nearly a fortnight and the Basque Country with one representative, present credentials for the dispute over the Spanish Championship for the competitive J80 boats.

The intense activity that the Cantabrian, Galician and Basque fleets have developed throughout the autumn and winter, under an intense program of regattas in their respective venues, presumes intense competition. After a day of measurements and reviews, the tests for the national title begin this Saturday at three in the afternoon.

Favorites with impeccable track record

The local Javier de la Gándara and his team aboard the Okofen and the J80 Virazón de Miguel Lago will put their great performance in recent months and their knowledge of the area’s regatta course into play against other rivals who will go all out.

This is the case of the Cantabrian Mercury of Jaime Piris, runner-up in Spain 2017, or the Maui Jim Sunglasses of the Menorcan Javier Aguado who closed the national podium last year. In addition, we must take into account the AD Garatu Basque team skippered by Juan Vázquez, third classified in the prestigious French regatta Spi Ouest 2018.

From the Balearic Islands, Ibo.es de Chacártegui will try to revalidate the national victory it achieved in 2016. The two-time world champion team from Cantabria, Aila, normally skippered by José María Torcida, will present a new skipper in the fight for the national title.

In total, more than twenty J80 monotypes that until Tuesday, May 1, will fight relentlessly to register their name in a national benchmark at a sporting level due to their great competitive level and that is part of the Repsol Trophy of the Monte Real Yacht Club. from Baiona.

Cruisers, figaros and J70 compete for “spring”

Forty-one years in 2018 one of the competitions with the longest run of the Monte Real Yacht Club, the Spring Regatta, which once again becomes the Repsol Trophy thanks to the sponsorship of the energy company, turns forty-one years old.

In this forty-first edition, in addition to the contest for the national J80, we will see some of the most outstanding cruisers in the Galician nautical scene compete, such as the Fend la Bise by Jean Claude Sarrade or the Gaias Clinic by José María Peinó, both champions Galician solitaires and two.

Also competing for the three scheduled coastal cruisers will be the recent winners of the Monte Real Winter Regatta, the Atlantic MBA of the Portuguese Rui Ramada; the Oral Group of the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo skippered by Pedro Pazos; and the Balea Dous by Luis Pérez, wearing the Rodeira nautical pendant.

Among the J70, which will compete at the Cíes Islands anchorage during the weekend, renowned sailors such as Pichu Torcida, Rayco Tabares or Luis Bugallo, in addition to the Pérez Canal brothers. Completing the classes of the trophy are the Figaros, a fleet in which the monotypes of Monte Real will be the protagonists.

The Rías Baixas will witness this Saturday the dispute of the Comunica Trophy

 

· More than 200 sailors aboard the 31 participating sailboats will compete in the first major cruise competition of the Monte Real Yacht Club in 2018
· Among the contenders for the title, the Oral Group of Pedro Pazos (Sanxenxo) and the Balea Dous of Luis Pérez (Rodeira) repeat winners of the previous edition
After leaving Sanxenxo (1:00 p.m.) and Vigo (2:00 p.m.), the fleet is scheduled to start crossing the finish line in the bay of Baiona at five in the afternoon

The Rías Baixas will witness tomorrow, Saturday, the dispute over the Comunica Trophy, one of the most outstanding cruise events in the spring nautical calendar in Galicia, in which more than 200 regattas will participate aboard the 31 sailboats registered so far. This is the first major cruise trophy of the Monte Real Club de Yates in 2018, which also has the collaboration of the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo and the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, hosting the departures of the fleet in front of their facilities.

The double start, from Sanxenxo and from Vigo, is the main novelty of this year’s Comunica Trophy, and it will take place one hour apart. At one in the afternoon the horn will sound in the vicinity of the Juan Carlos I marina, in Sanxenxo; and an hour later, at two o’clock, it will be the start in front of the port of Vigo. Both fleets will end up coming together on a route that will end in the bay of Baiona.

Among the contenders for the title we will see the winner of the previous edition in the cruiser-regatta category, the Oral Group, from the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo, who returns to the competition with Pedro Pazos at the controls and eager to repeat victory. The winner of the previous year in the cruise category will also compete, Luis Pérez’s Balea Dous, who will try to win one of the trophy prizes from the Real Club Náutico de Rodeira.

Among the J80 participants will be some of the monotypes that at the end of the month will compete in the Spanish Championship of the class held in Baiona, such as Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen, Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino or Luis de Mira’s Namasté . And in the Figaro class we will see some of the youngest sailors, since the sailboats will be crewed mainly by students from the Monte Real Club de Yates Sailing School.

If everything goes according to plan, the navigation of the fleet will be more or less agile and the fastest ships could have completed the journey in just over three hours, so that from five in the afternoon they would begin to see the first candles in the vicinity of the Baiones breakwater, where the finish line will be placed.

For all those who wish to follow the competition, the Juan Carlos I marina and the beaches closest to that area will be the points with the best visibility to see the departure of the fleet from Sanxenxo, while the departure from Vigo can be seen from the surroundings of the boat. The Costa de la Vela, the westernmost of the Morrazo peninsula, will be another of the places from which to enjoy sailing the sailboats, as well as the interior of the Bay of Baiona, the end point of the route.

Wizner and Ameneiro take the Baitra Trophy

 

· Martín Wizner from Vigo and Pedro Ameneiro from Pontevedra, current world champions under 17 in the 420 class, add a new success to their meteoric career

· The team made up of Africa Alonso and María Pérez Canal won the prize for the best female crew in the competition organized by Monte Real

· In the SUB 17 category, the winners were Jacobo García and Antoni Ripoll from the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo, who also came third overall.

· The winners received their prizes from the manager of Baitra, Juan Carlos González, a great promoter of grassroots sailing in Galicia

 

Martín Wizner from Vigo and Pedro Ameneiro from Pontevedra have just been proclaimed winners of the Baitra Dinghy Sailing Trophy, held this weekend in Baiona under the organization of the Monte Real Yacht Club and sponsored by the Baitra naval accessories company.

The current world champions under 17 in the 420 class achieved victory after signing two first places and one third in the three races held in the Saturday’s stage , results that were maintained after Sunday’s day, in which it was impossible to play any heat due to lack of wind.

With a highly refined technique and a great competitive spirit, the young sailors, from the 2001 generation, adapted to the Baiona course as the tests progressed. “The first heat was a bit difficult for us and we broke the crow’s feet but in the second, already accustomed to the roles, we picked up the pace and placed first, and in the third we were able to stay without problems” , Ameneiro assured at the end of the trophy.

Wizner and Ameneiro thus add a new success to their meteoric career, a resume that already includes, in addition to the under 17 world championship, the silver of the Athens European Open and the bronze of the 420 junior European Championships, held in Lago di Garda (Italy). Their next challenge, for which they are already preparing, is the Spanish Championship for the class, which will be held next March in Gran Canaria. “We are very excited -says Wizner- and this trophy has served as training to continue improving for the national”.

Therefore, the great trophy of the championship will go to the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, a cast replica of the Crab Battery that the winners received from Juan Carlos González, manager of Baitra and one of the great promoters of basic sailing in Galicia.

Another crew from the nautical ship from Vigo, the winner of the previous edition, formed by Jorge Enríquez and Guillermo Núñez, managed to climb to the second podium drawer; and the tandem Jacobo García-Antoni Ripoll, from the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo, completed the winners’ podium by hanging the bronze medal.

In addition to finishing third overall, García and Ripoll won the prize for the best U-17 crew, beating Africa Alonso and María Pérez Canal, from the Vigo yacht club; and Yago Castro and Jaime Wizner, who were second and third respectively.

The girls took, in addition to the second prize in U-17, the award for the best female crew of the competition.

Present at the awards ceremony for the winners were the president and several directors of the Monte Real Club de Yates, as the organizing club; the manager of Baitra, as sponsor of the event; the mayor of Baiona, Ángel Rodal; the councilor for maritime activities of Baiona, Raúl Costas; and the president of the Galician Sailing Federation, Manuel Villaverde.

The next appointment with the regattas in Baiona will be the Infinitus Rent Trophy, for J80 monotypes, which next weekend celebrates its fourth day, with Miguel Lago’s Virazón at the head of the classification.

Third round of the Infinitus Rent Trophy

 

· The J80s competition organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates crosses its equator tomorrow with the third of the six scheduled days

Miguel Lago’s Virazón commands in the standings just one point away from his immediate pursuer, the Portuguese Miudo

The day will be exciting due to how close the middle part of the classification is, with seven boats less than ten points apart

 

The J80 one-design fleet that has been competing in the Monte Real Club de Yates Winter League since last January will face off tomorrow, Saturday, in the third round of the Infinitus Rent Trophy. The sailboats will cross the equator of a competition that gets more interesting every day, with the leading crews separated by just one point and with a large number of boats closely grouped in the intermediate positions.

The three tasks scheduled for the third day will be played, as usual, starting at three in the afternoon in the Bay of Baiona, on a circuit of windward-leeward type buoys. The sailboats will have to complete a double round trip that will last around 45 minutes and in which the fastest starts and the most effective maneuvers when taking the buoys will once again be key to making jumps in the classification.

So far, with two days played, there are three boats that stand out from the rest. They are the Virazón de Miguel Lago, from the Monte Real Club de Yates, in first place as a rival to beat; the Portuguese Miudo from the We Do Sailing club, skippered by Francisca Barros and just one point behind the first; and the Cansino of the Commodore of Monte Real Fernando Yáñez, who is third.

In the middle part of the classification there are seven very tight boats, with just ten points separating the first and last, which augurs great competition in the races and excitement on the water.
