The emeritus monarch, who arrived accompanied by Pedro Campos, was received by the president of the Monte Real Yacht Club, José Luis Álvarez, and the commanding director of the Naval Military School, José María Núñez Torrente.

 

 

The 32nd Prince of Asturias Trophy concludes in Baiona

· King Juan Carlos presided this afternoon at the Monte Real Club de Yates at the awards ceremony for the winners after the last day of tests

· In the ORC competition, Pairo 8, Sum Innovation, Maracaná, Con Caalma and Jandrocho Team prevailed, and Blue Moon won in classics

· The Okofen and the Hello! placed on top of the Solventis J80 class podium and HELLO! Ladies Cup, and the Capriche won gold in the 6m classic class

The AXA Seguros boat manned by students from the Monte Real Adapted Sailing School for people with disabilities received a special mention

Baiona, September 3, 2017.- This afternoon the thirty-second edition of the Prince of Asturias Trophy, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates and the Escuela Naval Militar, and held over the last three days, concluded in Baiona.

With more than 80 boats in the running, the competition, one of the most prestigious on the Spanish nautical scene, managed to put on a show in the Rías Baixas despite the lack of wind that was the protagonist of the last two days and forced the suspension of some of the planned tests.

In the competition of the big boats, in which the very tight classification of the previous day announced a very exciting dispute, not even a test could be held. The wind appeared and disappeared, rolled continuously and could not stabilize at any time. Shortly before the deadline set for the end of the starts, the regatta committee decided to raise annulment, so the provisional podiums became definitive.

In the Óptica Studio ORC 1 class , the crew of the Pairo 8 , from the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, led by the Olympian Jordi Xammar, was the winner of the trophy. He took the win beating José Carlos Prista ‘s Xekmatt, from the Lisbon Naval Association; and the April of Jorge and Luis Pérez Canal, of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, who were second and third respectively.

In the Aceites Abril ORC 2 class , the Prince’s grand prize went to Sanxenxo at the hands of Willy Alonso, who placed the Sum Innovation at the top of the classification. Delmar Conde’s Porto de Aveiro , from the Boca de Barra Yacht Club; and the Atlantic MBA of Rui Ramada, from Monte Real, completed the podium.

The Vigo and Baiona clubs took home the prizes for the Gadis ORC 3 class . For the nautical man from Vigo, the first went, in which Luis Suárez’s Maracaná engraved his name; and in Monte Real the second and third were left, by Luis Manuel García’s Unus and Jean Claude Sarrade’s Fend la Bise .

Luckier than ORC’s 1, 2 and 3 was the fleet of the Volvo Autesa ORC 4 and Martin Miller ORC Open classes, because although they took a long time to start, they were able to take advantage of a breeze to compete in a 7-mile coastal course on this last day.

Francisco Javier Rey’s Con Caalma , from the Monte Real Yacht Club; and Ay Carmela of Juan Martínez Pazó, from the Liceo Marítimo de Bouzas, won the Volvo Autesa ORC 4 class.

In the Martin Miller ORC Open class , the Jandrocho Team led by Roberto Reboredo, from San Adrián de Cobres, beat Bombastic led by César Fernández Casqueiro, from Monte Real; and the Villain of the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña, skippered by Luis Bodelón.

The podium of the Storax Clásicos class was made up as follows: Luis Molina’s Blue Moon (RCN Coruña) was the winner, and Carlos Romero’s Pingüino Uno (CM Canido) and José Manuel Cores’s Belisa (AGABACE) were second and third.

In the 6 meters dispute, the results were defined by the test held on Saturday, because although the fleet went out into the water and was able to start a task, the lack of wind forced the regatta to be suspended after the first stern.

In the competition of 6 meters classic the victory was taken by Capriche by Íñigo Echenique, from the Canido Maritime Club; and in the 6 meters he won the Maybe by Luis Martín Cabiedes, from the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo, who also won the trophy of the 6m pool combined classification . El Bribón Movistar del Rey Juan Carlos, in which he sailed accompanied by Pedro Campos, came second.

In the Solventis J80 class , Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen , from Monte Real, started as the favorite and did not disappoint. He was the winner of this thirty-second edition of the Príncipe and also took home the Mary Woodward Special Award for the best J80 boat of the season. Among the rest of the fleet there were two other outstanding ships, the Marina Coruña – Coast by Pablo Martínez (RCN Coruña) and the Miudo de Francisca Barros (MRCYB), who in addition to acting as strong rivals of De la Gándara on the water, won the second and third prizes of the trophy.

King Juan Carlos was in charge of presenting the award to the winning crew of the HELLO! Ladies Cup, the exclusively female competition held within the framework of the Prince of Asturias Trophy and which brings together 36 of the best patron saints in Spain. The boat Hello! , from the BB Douro club, skippered by Marta Ramada climbed to the top of the podium, leaving the second position for the Monte Real Hello Fashion Monthly , skippered by Rosalía Martínez and with a crew of students from the organizing club’s Sailing School .

In the distribution of prizes, which was chaired by the King Emeritus, an honorable mention was also given to the ship AXA Seguros , crewed by students from the Juan María de Nigrán Center for people with intellectual disabilities. They are a group of boys who attend, throughout the year, the Monte Real Adapted Sailing School and who participated, for the third consecutive year, in the Prince of Asturias Trophy. The initiative has the support of the Ministry of Social Policy.

In addition, the Conde de Barcelona Don Juan de Borbón Prize was awarded to the best boat with a Portuguese crew , which was won by the Porto de Aveiro of the Club Náutico Boca de Barra, skippered by Delmar Conde.

· The changes produced in the classifications and the approach of positions in the general augur an exciting final day tomorrow, Sunday

· The 32nd Prince of Asturias Trophy includes tonight the celebration in Baiona of the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards gala

The sailboats sailed inside the bay and the public of the nearby promenades and sandbanks could enjoy the competition of these boats of great beauty.

With a northerly component wind that blew throughout the day with very good intensity, the crews were able to enjoy the maneuvers and this was noticeable on the water. An exciting coastal for the big boats and some hotly contested poles for the monotypes made lovers of good sailing enjoy themselves.

The exits of the classes in liza took place on time at the scheduled times. The ORCs left consecutively starting at three in the afternoon, and half an hour later the first honk of the monotypes was heard. While the former completed a roundtrip coastal route between the Bay of Baiona and Subrido, in the area of Cabo Home; the latter stayed inside the bay, competing in two windward/leeward tests.

In the Óptica Studio ORC 1 class, the first boat to complete the slightly more than 17-mile course was the Solventis. He finished the stage in two hours and eleven minutes but the time compensation made him fall to sixth position. In first place in the classification was placed the Mirfak of the Naval Regatta Commission of the Navy, skippered by Diego López; who left the second and third position of the provisional podium to April of the Pérez Canal brothers, from the Real Club Náutico de Vigo; and the Xekmatt, of the Lisbon Naval Association, with José Carlos Prista at the controls.

In the Aceites Abril ORC 2 class, victory went to Sum Innovation from Sanxenxo, skippered by Guillermo Alonso. They are followed in the classification by the Cachete of the Club Náutico de Sada, led by Fran Edreira; and the Atlantic MBA of Rui Ramada, from the Monte Real Club de Yates.

The Maracaná I of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, with Luis Suárez leading the crew, was the winner in the Gadis ORC 3 class. The Fend la Bise by Jean Claude Sarrade, from the Monte Real Club de Yates; and the Unus of Luis Manuel García, of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, hold the provisional silver and bronze.

In the Solventis J80 class, Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen, from Monte Real, who started as favourite, came first in the standings, followed by Marina Coruña skippered by Pablo Martínez. The Miudo of the Portuguese Francisca Barros is third.

And in the HELLO! Ladies Cup, the victory of the day went to the Portuguese crew of the BBDouro, who sailed on the boat HELLO! under the guidance of Marta Ramada. The HELLO! Cristina García, from the Alicante Costa Blanca Nautical Club, came second and the third position went to the Hello Fashion Monthly from the Monte Real Yacht Club, skippered by Rosalía Martínez.

Tomorrow Saturday: second day and Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards

After the first day held this afternoon in Baiona, the thirty-second edition of the Prince of Asturias Trophy continues tomorrow, Saturday, with the entire fleet already in the water. The great boats and one designs that competed today will be joined by sailboats from the Volvo Autesa ORC 4, Storax Classics and Martin Miller ORC Open classes. In this last category, the inclusive boat of the AXA Foundation will sail, crewed by students from the Juan María de Nigrán Center for people with intellectual disabilities who attend the Monte Real Adapted Sailing School throughout the year.

The sailboats of the 6-meter class, the category in which the King Don Juan Carlos competes, will also haggle tomorrow Saturday. The emeritus monarch plans to arrive in Baiona at eleven in the morning to hold a preparatory meeting with his crew before going out on the water. Upon his arrival at the Monte Real Yacht Club, Don Juan Carlos will be received by the president of the Baiona club, José Luis Álvarez, and the commanding director of the Naval Military School, José María Núñez Torrente.

In addition to the planned activity on the water, with regattas from noon to afternoon at various points in the Rías Baixas, the Prince of Asturias Trophy also hosts tomorrow the presentation of the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards.
