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.

The Repsol Trophy unfurled sails this Saturday in the Galician Rías Baixas with the celebration of the first of the two days from which the winners of the 43rd edition of the legendary Spring Regatta of the Monte Real Yacht Club of Baiona will emerge.

The competition brought together 47 sailboats grouped into cruise classes, competing under the ORC time compensation formula; and monotypes J80 and Fígaros, the races being disputed in real time.

There were nearly 300 sailors representing nautical clubs from all over Galicia and some from Portugal, who this Saturday disputed a 28-mile route, some and 20 others, surrounding, with more or less turns, the Cíes Islands of the Atlantic Islands National Park from Galicia. Although initially the regatta committee had planned a round trip route between Baiona and the Rande bridge, the wind conditions were not the most suitable for that route and it was decided at the last minute to make the change.

The regatta was held with a wind from the northwest, almost from the north, always above 13 knots, which facilitated the navigation of the sailboats, which were able to complete the test with agility and without problems.

ORC CLASS 1-2

In the ORC 1-2 class, the one with the fastest boats, Julio Rodríguez’s Magical (RCN Vigo) was in the lead from the start, leading the fleet at all times. He crossed the finish line first, after 3 hours and 57 minutes of crossing, but the time compensation caused him to fall to third position, behind Rui Ramada’s Yess Racing (MRCYB), who was the winner of this first test of the Repsol Trophy; and the Aceites Abril of the Pérez Canal brothers (RCN Vigo), which is trying to revalidate the title of the last edition, came second.

ORC-CLASS 3

In the ORC 3 class, one of the most closely contested in the trophy, Vicente Cid’s Deep Blue 2.1 (RNC Vigo), who won the Comunica Trophy last weekend, arrived with enthusiasm and strength at this Spring Regatta and managed to climb to the top of the table. He overtook Bosch Service Solutions of Ramón Ojea (CM Canido), who came second; and Víctor Carrión’s Bom III (CN Punta Lagoa), who will reach the final in third position.

ORC-CLASS 4

The boats that competed in the ORC 4 class made a shorter course than the ORC 1-2-3. In the 20 miles that the regatta committee marked out to circumnavigate the Cíes, Luis Pérez’s Balea Dous (RNC Rodeira) demonstrated, once again, why he is one of the regulars on the podiums of the Rías Baixas competitions. He was the fastest in the test and will reach the final first. Following in the provisional classification are Victor Álvarez’s Nahela (CN Alagua) and Fernando Rey’s Albarellos (MRCYB).

ORC-CLASS A2

In the ORC A2 class, with teams made up of only two people, skipper and crew member, Javier Rey’s Q Talento Consultores, from Monte Real Yacht Club, was the winner; and Rodrigo Rodríguez’s Alalunga, from the Club Marítimo de Canido, came second.

J80 CLASS

In the J80 one-design competition, the largest fleet in the competition, Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen had the best result in the opening stage. The ocean navigator’s sailboat, with its usual crew, was the winner of the last edition and came ready to repeat victory. The provisional silver and bronze are held by the Maija of José Luis Pérez and the Marías of Manel Marías, all from the Monte Real Club de Yates.

FIGARO CLASS

The Figaro class drew attention for being the one in which the most women sailed, thanks to the participation of four female boats from the Monte Real Club de Yates Women’s Sailing project, which seeks to increase the presence of women in the regattas held in Galicia. One of them, the Erizana, skippered by Elena Raga, managed to climb to third position. Miguel Montes’s Tutatis and Alejandro Vázquez’s Bouvento were first and second.

LA COSTERA DOMINICAL WILL DECIDE THE WINNERS

The Repsol Trophy – 43rd Spring Regatta comes to an end this Sunday with the holding of the second and last race, the definitive one to configure the final classification. As on the first day, the crews will have to face a coastal route with departure and arrival in Baiona. It will take place along the Vigo estuary but the crossing points are yet to be decided, since they will depend on the wind.

If everything goes according to plan, the regatta committee will start the fleet around noon and in the afternoon, at half past six, the facilities of the Monte Real Club de Yates will host the awards ceremony for the winners, in which will be attended by the president of the club, José Luis Álvarez; Repsol’s marine and fishing manager, Inés González Megido, on behalf of the energy company, sponsor of the event; the mayor of Baiona, Carlos Gómez; and the deputy for Sports of Pontevedra, Gorka Gómez.

40 boats will compete this Saturday in a new edition of the Comunica Trophy, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates with the collaboration of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo and the sponsorship of the visual communication company Comunica.

Among the crews that aspire to take the laurels of the ORC class we will see the Yess Too of the Portuguese Rui Ramada, the Aceites Abril of the Ourenses Luis and Jorge Pérez Canal, the Pairo Marnatura skippered by Luis Bugallo, the Magical of Julio Rodríguez or Al Balea Dous by Luis Pérez.

This year, as a novelty, there is also a trophy for the ORC A2 category, for sailboats with a skipper and a single crew member, in which some nautical couples have registered, such as those made up of Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure aboard the Salaño Dos ; or Javier Rey and Jorge Justo, in the Q Talent Consultants.

The Luxoconf by Jean Claude Sarrade, the SND Cormorán by Francisco Martínez, the Ifaclinic by Joao Allen, La Galera by Miguel Fernandez and the Pazo de Cea by Iago Carballo are some of the J80s that will compete for victory in this class of one-designs, which it will not be the only one, as there will also be a category for the Figaro Beneteau.

The latter will be sailed by the crews led by Teresa Valladares, aboard the Ladeira; or Javier Bernardez in the Bouvento.

In the absence of the deadline for registration, which will remain open until one hour before the start of the competition, there are already nearly 200 sailors who will leave Vigo this Saturday at two in the afternoon for Baiona for the final victory .

They will have a route of about 15 miles ahead of them with several steps through beacons for which the weather forecast announces winds from the south southwest with an average of 8 knots and peaks of up to 18, which could be even more intense given the probability that record showers at times.

Once the competition is over, the Monte Real Club de Yates will host the awards ceremony for the winners, in which the president of the Baiona club, José Luis Álvarez; the executive director of Comunica, Roberto Lira; the mayor of Baiona, Carlos Gómez; and the deputy for sports from the Pontevedra Provincial Council, Gorka Gómez.

 

Monte Real opens the heavy sailing season with the Comunica Trophy

 

· After launching the J80 League and celebrating the Spanish Optimist Championship, the heavy sailing regattas arrive at the Monte Real Club de Yates

· The sailboats that participate in the Comunica Trophy scheduled for next Saturday in the Rías Baixas will sail the distance that separates Vigo from Baiona

· The regatta will start at two in the afternoon from the vicinity of the Náutico de Vigo that collaborates with the race and the awards ceremony will be in the afternoon in Baiona

After launching the J80 Winter League and celebrating the Spanish Optimist Championship, the Monte Real Club de Yates inaugurates this Saturday the heavy sailing season with the Comunica Trophy, the first of the six regattas for cruisers that the club from Baiona has scheduled for this 2021.

A coastal route between Vigo and Baiona will be the route that the participating sailboats (which will be able to compete in ORC, ORC Open, ORC Double Handed, J80 or Fígaro) must complete to win the final victory, which will be resolved in a single day.

Although it will be the weather that dictates the final route, the intention of the regatta committee is to make the fastest boats pass by a mark while the rest sail directly, with the aim that everyone can reach the finish more or less at the same time.

The arrival point will be located in the vicinity of the Baiona dock and once the race is over, it will be the Monte Real Yacht Club itself that will host the award ceremony for the winners, at seven in the afternoon.

As a novelty this year, one of the categories in contention will be the ORC Double Handed, in which the sailboats will be manned by only two people. This is a change accepted by the organizing club after receiving requests from some owners who want to be able to participate in more regattas within this modality to prepare for the Galician A2 Championship to be held in June.

One of the sailboats that will participate in this category will be the Salaño Dos of Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure, which will face, among others, the Q Talento Consultores of Javier Rey and Jorge Justo; to Lacazán by Mariano Benavente and Genoveva Pereiro; or the Alalunga by Rodrigo Rodríguez and Carlos Cárdenas.

In ORC there will be three of the regulars of the great regattas in Galicia: the Yess Racing of the Portuguese Rui Ramada, the Aceites Abril of the Pérez Canal brothers and the Pairo skippered by Luis Bugallo.

The third day of the Spanish Optimist Championship – Cenor Trophy, in which three new tests of the dinghy sailing competition were to be held, ended up being canceled this Friday in Baiona (Galicia) due to lack of wind.

The 150 sailors participating in the competition did not even get out on the water. They remained on land for hours pending in case a breeze came in and they could go sailing, but the conditions never became ideal.

Members of the regatta committee and the beacons did go out to sea to study, from the early hours of the morning, both the interior and the entrance channel to the Bay of Baiona, but the wind did not manage to reach the intensity in any of those areas. necessary. At some point up to 7 knots were recorded, which was the maximum of the day, but neither direction boards were maintained nor did they last over time.

Finally, after verifying that it would be impossible to contest any sleeve, the organization decided to cancel the stage and summon the participants to the final day this Saturday, the last of the championship, with a scheduled start time for eleven in the morning.

After the protests registered after the first tests there were some changes in the initial classification, but the protagonists of the ranking continue to be, with force, the sailors of the Balearic federation, followed by the Valencian, Canarian and Andalusian territorial ones.

In the U16 male category, Tim Lubat (RCN Palma) is in the lead, followed by Xavier García (RCN Palma) and Miguel Padrón (RCN Gran Canaria). Marisa Alexandra Vicens (CN s’Arenal), and Susana Bestard (RCN Palma) and Nicola Jane Sadler (CN s’Arenal) are second and third in the women’s SUB 16 category.

The Spanish Optimist Championship – Cenor Trophy has already named its first leaders. Marisa Alexandra Vicens and Ignacio Martín, both from the Balearic territorial federation, were placed this Thursday at the top of the classification of the children’s sailing national held in the Galician town of Baiona under the organization of the Monte Real Yacht Club.

With two first places and one second, and after discarding her worst result (a 26), Marisa Alexandra Vicens, from Club Nautic s’Arenal, was the best athlete in the regatta. It is placed at the top of the general classification and also leads the group of the female SUB 16. In this category, they are followed, in second and third position, by Susana Bestard (RCN Palma) and Nicola Jane Sadler (CN s’Arenal) from Mallorca.

Among the U16 boys, the best of the day was Tim Lubat (RCN Palma). He overtook his club mate Xabier García, who is second; and the Canarian Miguel Padrón (RCN Gran Canaria) who closes the provisional podium of the category.

In the SUB 13 competition, Ignacio Martín (RCN Palma) and Blanca Ferrando (RCN Valencia) lead the classification, in the male and female categories. The Andalusian Rodrigo Luis González Pérez (CDN Punta Umbría) and the Balearic Nikko Palou (RCN Palma) were left on the verge of first place, second and third respectively among the boys; and Candela Escobedo (RCM Santander) and Gabriela Morell (RCN Palma) hold the provisional silver and bronze for the girls.

This second day of the Spanish Optimist Championship – Cenor Trophy was the first scoring of the competition after the blank day lived this Wednesday due to lack of wind. Three tests were planned in the stage program, but the regatta committee, seeing the good weather conditions and the not very optimistic reports for the remaining days of competition, decided to do a fourth.

They were all held with very good wind, always above ten knots, with an average of thirteen and gusts of up to sixteen. The starts were clean, with hardly any out of line, and it was only necessary to make a general call to the sailors of the blue group. The aspiring champions of Spain sailed on a trapezoid-shaped field, which they left on the outside completing a lap, passing through a gate and adding a second upwind leg to the finish.

The regatta area was located in Carallones, at the entrance to the Bay of Baiona, one of the most spectacular places in the Rías Baixas due to the views it offers of the Estelas Islands, the Cíes Islands of the Atlantic Islands National Park, the Parador Nacional de Baiona and the Virgen de la Roca, one of the most visited monuments in the Galician fishing village.

Quite a luxury for the 150 sailors from 10 autonomous communities that participate in this Optimist Spanish Championship that the Monte Real Club de Yates organizes by delegation of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation and with the sponsorship of the Cenor Group.

The national dinghy continues tomorrow, Friday, the Easter holiday, with the third of the four scheduled days, which will be the second scoring one. The time set for the start of the tests is eleven in the morning but the wind forecasts are not very encouraging and delays are not ruled out.

The wind leaves the opening day of the Spanish Optimist Championship blank

 

· The 150 sailors from 10 Spanish communities who were going to dispute the opening day of the Optimist national in Baiona this Wednesday returned to land without being able to inaugurate the scoreboard

· The regatta committee kept the fleet in the water for several hours in the hope of being able to start at least one race, but the wind did not pick up nor was it strong enough to hold the regatta

· The Spanish Optimist Championship – Cenor Trophy organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club continues tomorrow, Thursday, starting at eleven in the morning with the second of the four scheduled days

The wind did its thing this Wednesday in Baiona (Galicia) and left blank the opening day of the Spanish Optimist Championship – Cenor Trophy, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates by delegation of the Royal Galician Sailing Federation.

After several hours in the water, the 150 sailors from 10 autonomous communities who were going to compete in the first tests of this national light sailing race returned to land without being able to open the scoreboard.

The regatta committee, with Cristofol Morales at the helm, maintained until the end the hopes of being able to start at least one test with which to open the classification, but the wind did not pick up nor did it pick up enough intensity to celebrate the regatta. Winds were recorded from all four quadrants and, when it seemed that the situation was going to stabilize, half a regatta field was laid, but the attempt was ultimately frustrated.

Measurement after measurement, the wind failed to catch or blow with sufficient intensity – Photo © Rosana Calvo

The opening of a championship that still has three more days on the program was thus watered down and the sights are already set on the weather forecasts for this Thursday, which are announced to be somewhat better. Quite a bit of cloudiness is expected and there is a high probability of rain, even heavy showers, but the wind will blow more intensely, which will make it easier for the Optimists to navigate. If the forecast holds true, it will blow from the southeast in the morning and from the southwest in the afternoon, with between 5 and 8 knots on average and gusts of up to 16.

The start time of the tests is set for eleven in the morning but the clock will be, as always, subject to what happens with the wind. In the water will be the 150 sailors from Andalusia, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, the Valencian Community, Catalonia, Murcia, the Basque Country, Cantabria, Madrid and also the Galicians, who act as hosts.

In dispute, the titles of national champions of Optimist in the categories SUB 16 and SUB 13, and also the Championship by Autonomies, which will reward the territorial federations that obtain the best results.

The 2021 Optimis Spanish Championship is held this year in Baiona organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates by delegation of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation and thanks to the sponsorship of the Cenor Group.

He did it after winning the only test that could be played due to the wind, which did not blow strongly enough. The same is not expected to happen this weekend, in which the forecasts announce winds above ten knots reaching peaks of twenty at times.

Luna Nueva by Juan Luis Tuero is in second place in the provisional classification, followed, from bronze, by Cansino by Fernando Yáñez. Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen and Santiago Estévez’s Spaco complete the Top 5 after opening the markers.

The SUPER SERIES will arrive in Baiona in 2022

 

· The COVID19 situation has led the organization to cancel the regattas scheduled for the start of the 2021 season (Saint Tropez, Baiona and Cascais)

· The organizers maintain their commitment to Galicia and announce the celebration of Baiona Sailing Week in 2022

· From the Monte Real Yacht Club they regret the decision of the 52 SUPER SERIES but are happy to be able to celebrate them next year in the framework of the Xacobeo

 

The 52 SUPER SERIES will finally arrive in Baiona in 2022. The organization of the circuit, one of the three most important nautical events in the world, has decided to cancel all the regattas scheduled for the start of the 2021 season, including those that were to be held in Galicia .

The situation derived from COVID19, the numerous restrictions that are still in force in numerous points and the great efforts necessary to guarantee a safe event in the midst of the pandemic are behind a decision that the Monte Real Club de Yates, which was going to host of the event next June, they greatly regret.

For the president of the historic Baion club, José Luis Álvarez, it is a shame not to be able to count on this prestigious circuit this year in Galicia, but he is confident – he said – that the COVID situation will improve in the coming months and allow the BAIONA to be held SAILING WEEK in 2022.

Álvarez said he understands the circumstances that have led the organization to make this decision and conveyed to the organizers the club’s commitment to the circuit. “In 2022 -said the president of Monte Real- We will be more prepared than ever to receive the SUPER SERIES and it will be an equally special edition, since it will coincide with the Xacobeo extended by COVID until next year”.

With high performance and great international prestige, the 52 SUPER SERIES are one of the three most important nautical events in the world, along with the America’s Cup and the World Sailing Tour. They are considered the “Formula 1 of the sea” and their impact reaches figures of up to two million euros of investment in local companies and services. The organization of each of the stages involves the movement of some 500 people, up to 12 megayachts and numerous support boats.

“The suspension of the Saint Tropez, Baiona and Cascais regattas has been a very difficult decision to make, but the circuit attracts teams from all over the world and there is still not enough certainty to ensure a safe and competitive event. In this changing situation, it is our obligation to minimize possible risks and with this new plan, travel and transportation are minimized and we ensure greater security” said the CEO of the 52 SUPER SERIES Agustín Zulueta.

 

 

De la Gándara and his Okofen crew win the J80 Autumn League

 

· The sailor from Vigo, accompanied by his sons Javier and Jaime and his usual winning partner, Diego Fernández, achieved a new triumph in Baiona

· De la Gándara revalidated the success achieved at the beginning of the year in the Winter League and sentenced the autumn championship by taking 27 points from their rivals

· El Cansino by Fernando Yáñez and El Alboroto by Juan Carlos Ameneiro won silver and bronze in the Monte Real monotype league

· Next weekend the bay of Baiona will host a new edition of the Spanish Sailing League – State Lotteries and Bets Trophy

There were no surprises this Saturday in Baiona and the crew led by the sailor from Vigo Javier de la Gándara finally won the J80 class Autumn League, which this afternoon held its last tests in the Bay of Baiona.

On board the Okofen , Javier de la Gándara, his sons Jaime and Javier, and Diego Fernández, the team’s usual teammate in victories; They sentenced a new edition of the one-design championship of the Monte Real Club de Yates, and they did it again forcefully.

Of the 9 tests held in various days during the months of October and November, Okofen signed 7 first places and finished with 9 points in the final general classification. The crew only missed 2 victories in which, in any case, they did not drop from second position.

De la Gándara and his team thus revalidated the victory they had achieved at the beginning of the year in the J80 Winter League and hung their laurels by taking up to 29 points from second-placed Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino . Despite the fact that he suffered a lot in today’s quarters (with an eighth, a tenth and a sixth place), Cansino managed to finish with 36 points and took the silver in the league.

The surprise of the classification came with the bronze, which finally went to the hands of Uproar from Juan Carlos Ameneiro, who with a third, a sixth and a second on the last day, managed to jump from fifth to third place overall and close the championship podium with 40 points.

Manuel María Cunha’s Marías was once again, as it had been on the penultimate day, one of the outstanding boats of the day. He finished second in the first race, managed to beat Okofen in the second race and finished third in the last regatta of the day. Despite these good results, his absences in the first days of the league (he did not compete in the first four days) weighed too much and Marías finished the competition in ninth position.

In this last stage of the one-design league, three tests were completed with a somewhat shifty wind, which forced several route changes; and with the night throwing itself on top of the clock, which prevented the celebration of any test greater than the three initially planned.

In addition to Okofen and Marías, Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto managed to get on the partial podiums this Saturday, with a third and a second; and the Namasté by Luis de Mira, who achieved third place in one of the tests; although only the Fuss managed to sneak into the final podium.

Gold, silver and bronze for the Okofen, the Tired and the Fuss; fourth and fifth position for the New Moon by Juan Luis Tuero and the Maija by José Luis Pérez; and sixth place for Spaco de Santiago Estévez, another of the outstanding boats in the autumn league, which finally could not enter the Top 5.

With the end of the J80 Autumn League, the Monte Real Club de Yates puts an end to its 2020 sports calendar although it has not yet said goodbye to the competitions, since next weekend the waters of Baiona will host a new edition of the Spanish Sailing League – State Lotteries and Bets Trophy .

Organized by the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation, the state league returns to the Baionese club -where it had already been in 2019- to celebrate its last tests, some regattas that will reveal the name of the team that will represent Spain in the Sailing Champions League, the league European.

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.
