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.

The wind, protagonist in the opening day of the 36th Prince of Asturias Trophy

 

The Bay of Baiona inaugurated this Friday the thirty-sixth edition of one of the most anticipated events of the season, and it did so with a very light wind that prevented the categories of Aceites Abril ORC 1, Nacexa ORC 2, and Volvo Autesa ORC 3 from competing. and Martin Miller ORC 4

· There were conditions in the Solventis J80 and Gestilar Ladies Cup race course, which completed their planned program with Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto-Maui Jim and Sara Carmo’s Erizana as the first leaders of the general

· Tomorrow, Saturday, the Gadis ORC 5 and SH Robotics ORC Open divisions will join together and, at the end of the day, the award ceremony for the prestigious Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards will take place

Organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club and the Naval Military School with the sponsorship of ABANCA, the Prince of Asturias Trophy opened its thirty-sixth edition this Friday with a first day in which the wind was the main protagonist.

Both the fleet and the committee had a difficult time, especially in the regatta field of the four ORC divisions, and that is that Eolo resisted blowing hard enough to inaugurate the classification of the classes April ORC 1, Nacexa ORC 2, Volvo Autesa ORC 3 and Martin Miller ORC 4 oils . There were conditions in the regatta area for the Solventis J80 and Gestilar Ladies Cup, which were able to complete their test program in the Bay of Baiona, with Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto-Maui Jim and Sara Carmo’s Erizana as first leaders. of the general.

From early in the morning everything seemed to indicate that it would be a long day in the waters of the Rías Baixas. With the first starting honk scheduled at three in the afternoon for all classes, the race committee of the ORC course had to postpone the start of the tests due to the total absence of wind in front of the Cíes Islands. The wait lasted nearly two hours until finally, after half past six in the afternoon, and after the committee made one last attempt by moving the regatta field to the interior of the bay, the day ended without having been able to complete any sleeve.

The teams in the Solventis J80 and Gestilar Ladies Cup categories had more luck in a field located in the Bay of Baiona in front of the Monte Real facilities. There Eolo did comply and the committee was able to complete all the planned tests with a wind of six knots of intensity from the northeast that lasted practically all afternoon.

In the Solventis J80 class, which took part in a total of three races, the first day of the Príncipe de Asturias was more than close with the first four teams in the general standings separated by only five points. El Alboroto – Maui Jim by Juan Carlos Ameneiro (MRCYB) was the best of the day with a second, a sixth and a first that places him with nine points in the first place on the provisional podium.

In the Gestilar Ladies Cup , which celebrates its silver jubilee this year, the Erizana of the Olympic sailor Sara Carmo (Marina Burriananova – Som Vela) dominates with a partial victory in the first race and a second place. Two points behind those of Carmo, Ladeira de Carmen Galdós (RCMA – RSC) is in second position with a fourth and a first place while Serralleiras de Eva González (RCM Santander) occupies third place after adding a third and a room in his locker.
