Baiona elevated the new Galician champions of A Dos this Saturday after the celebration of a new edition of the MRW Trophy, in which not only the absolute, mixed and women’s regional titles of navigation in reduced crews were put into play; but also the awards of the VIII Rafael Olmedo Memorial.

The male prizes of the two classes in dispute (ORC and J80) went to the couples formed by Rui Ramada and Óscar Peixoto (ORC) and Nano Yáñez and Manuel Fernández (J80), both from the Monte Real Club de Yates. They were the best in the competition and are, as of today, the new Galician A Dos champions, as stated on the plaques given to them by the Royal Galician Sailing Federation.

In this edition of the Galician Championship, in addition to the men’s prizes, distinctions were awarded again, as had been done in the previous edition for the first time in the history of the competition, to the best female and mixed crews.

The creation of these special categories depended on the number of entries in each of them and managed to form the female category in J80, with the winners being Marta Ramada and Ana Sardiña, from Monte Real; and mixed in ORC, where the couple formed by Brenda Maure and Jacobo Vecino, from the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, won.

The development of the test was a full-fledged nortada. The north wind blew sharply and with intensity from the start, which occurred promptly at eleven in the morning; to the turning point at the Camouco lighthouse, in Ons; and it remained the same, both in direction and intensity (13-15 knots with peaks of 19) until the finish line, which the regatta committee placed inside the bay of Baiona.

The largest sailboat in the fleet, the Yess (a Hanse 630 E), owned by Rui Ramada and Óscar Peixoto, completed “flying” a total of 35.3 miles. It took just two and a half hours to turn the Camouco and just over four and a half hours to finish the test.

Among the rest of the crews, those of the Deep Blue, the Salaño Dos, the Orión, the Fend la Bise and La María stood out. This group of five boats, from the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, the Monte Real Club de Yates and the Club Náutico de Cabanas, all with great sailors on board, always remained at the head of the fleet without losing sight of each other. the others.

The Yess (MRCYB) finished the winner of the MRW Trophy in the ORC class, leaving second and third position to Salaño Dos of Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure (RCN Vigo) and Orión of Javier Pérez and Esteban Gañete (MRCYB). In the ORC OPEN class, the Secolite of Javier Rey and Jorge Justo (MRCYB), the Bouvento of David Fontán and Alex Luca de Tena (MRCYB) and the Tutatis of Roy Alonso and Alechu Retolaza (MRCYB) stood on the podium.

These last two boats concentrated all the attention of the Figaros fleet due to the intense hand in hand they maintained throughout the test; and due to the fact that managers from Monte Real (the vice president and sports director at Tutatis) and club coaches competed. Finally, it was the trainers David Fontán and Alex Luca de Tena who won the prize, after gaining distance in the last few miles and completing a great regatta finish.

In the J80 real-time competition, the surprise of the day was given by Francisco Javier Martínez and Alfonso Otero’s SND Cormorán, tacking the first at Camouco; although he finally finished the test in second position behind Cansino de Nano Yáñez and Manuel Fernández, one of the most solvent in the entire test. After the gold and silver of the two Monte Real boats, the bronze of the monotypes went to ¡Ay Carmela! of the Liceo Marítimo de Bouzas, manned by Juan Martínez Pazó and José Ignacio Correa.

Within the framework of the MRW Trophy, in addition to the Trophy prizes and the plaques to the new Galician Champions of A Dos, the prizes of the VIII Rafael Olmedo Memorial were awarded to the general winners of the two classes in contention: the Yess (ORC) and the Tired (J80). They received them from Rodrigo Olmedo, son of the former president of Monte Real for more than 40 years and to whom this competition has been dedicated for 8 years.

Participating in the awards ceremony, which took place with a very good atmosphere in the gardens of Monte Real, were the president of the organizing club, José Luis Álvarez; the executive director of MRW and sponsor of the competition, Santos Almeida; the deputy mayor of Baiona, Óscar Martínez; the Deputy for Sports of the Pontevedra Provincial Council, Gorka Gómez; and the president of the Dinghy Sailing Committee and director of the Royal Galician Sailing Federation, Ignacio Campos.

The competition, sponsored by MRW, will be divided into two different classes: ORC, which will qualify after applying time compensation; and J80, which will compete in real time. And within each of them several categories will be established.

In ORC there will be, in addition to the general, there will be a mixed category, in which the teams formed by Carolina Martínez and Miguel Ángel Fernández (CN Sada), Elena Raga and Miguel Sterner (MRCYB), Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure (RCN Vigo), and José Luis Ríos and María Jesús Montes (RCN Vigo).

· This is the eleventh consecutive year that the Royal Galician Sailing Federation delegates the organization of a test with which the club pays tribute to its historic president Rafael Olmedo to the Monte Real Club de Yates

A hand in hand sailing through the Rías Baixas. That will be the Galician Two-handed Championship that will be held next Saturday under the organization of the Monte Real Club de Yates and with the sponsorship of MRW.

The Royal Galician Sailing Federation has delegated, for yet another year -and there are now eleven- in the Baionese club the organization of one of the most exciting sailing events in Galicia, not so much because of its route, but also because of the characteristics of the competition, in which only two people will go on board the sailboats.

A skipper and a single crew member who must take care of both the tactics and the maneuvers of the boat throughout the more than 35 nautical miles that it takes to complete the route between Baiona and the island of Ons, which the sailboats must reach before return back to Bayonne.

In their navigation they will pass by the Carallones and La Negra beacons and will continue to climb, leaving aside the archipelago of the Cíes Islands and the Onza Island before reaching the Camouco lighthouse, northeast of the Ons Island, in front of Cova do Wolf. Once there and after turning the lighthouse, they will start the descent to Baiona, where the finish line will be waiting for them.

With a few days to go before the registration deadline closes, there are already more than twenty boats registered to participate in the championship and the organization hopes to reach thirty. They will be grouped into two classes: cruiser and J80; and in both there will be -if a minimum of inscriptions is reached- three categories: general, mixed and feminine.

In the cruise class we will see people like Javier Pérez and Esteban Gañete aboard the Orión; Javier Rey and Jorge Justo at the Secolite; Jacobo Vecino and Brenda Maure crewing the Salaño Dos; Vicente Cid and Javier Fernández-Ahuja in Deep Blue 2.1; or Agustín Marquina and Fernando Rey in the Erizana, among others.

They will compete in compensated times making the difference with the J80, the other class in contention, which will do it in real time. On board the 8 meters there will be some of the usual sailors from the Monte Real one-design leagues, such as the couple formed by Luis de Mira and Susana Baena, from the club itself; Juan Martínez Pazó and José Ignacio Correa, from the Bouzas Maritime School; or Rafael Blanco and Alejandro Vázquez, from the Real Club Náutico de Portosín.

In addition to the prizes of the MRW Trophy and the Galician Two-Handed Championship, the competition will deliver two special trophies, those related to the Rafael Olmedo Memorial, with which the Monte Real Yacht Club honors its former president for more than 40 years. They will be taken by the best classified in cruiser and J80.

The competition, which can be followed live on the Monte Real website (www.mrcyb.es) thanks to a virtual reality system, will begin on Saturday at eleven in the morning. Previously, the day on Friday will be devoted to measurements, security controls and meeting of patterns. And the awards ceremony will take place at eight o’clock on Saturday afternoon in the gardens of the Baiones club.

Some of those who have already confirmed their attendance at the award ceremony are the president of the Monte Real Yacht Club, José Luis Álvarez; the executive director of MRW Vigo and sponsor of the competition, Santos Almeida; the mayor of Baiona, Carlos Gómez; and the deputy for Sports of the Pontevedra Provincial Council, Gorka Gómez. It is also expected that a representative of the Xunta de Galicia will attend, yet to be confirmed.

13 women aspire to the title of Galician Champions of A Dos

 

· For the first time in the history of the competition, specific prizes are put up for the best female and mixed crews

· The 72 sailors participating in the race will compete this Saturday in a regatta of about 30 round trip miles between Baiona and Ons

· The appointment framed in the MRW Trophy is held for the tenth consecutive year under the organization of the Monte Real Club de Yates

 

13 women aspire to become, this Saturday, the new Galician A Dos Champions in the regional event that the Monte Real Club de Yates organizes by delegation of the Royal Galician Sailing Federation and is part of the MRW Trophy. For the first time in the history of the competition, in 2021 specific prizes are put up for the best female and mixed crews, and there will be several teams of each type competing in the different classes.

In J80, 4 exclusively female teams will go for the title, made up of: Alejandra Suárez and Pilar Amaro, María Campos and Rita Hernández, Marta Ramada and Dunia Reino; and Carlota Hernández and Carolina Terron. The crew members of this last team, Hernández and Terrón, who will sail aboard the “Gordita”, agreed on the importance of continuing to take steps to increase the number of women sailing.

“Having a prize for women within the general competition is very important since the percentage of men who participate is always higher and, statistically, they have more chances of winning, so these prizes – says Carlota Hernández – they allow women to stand out in some way, and they also serve to promote sports among women” .

For Carolina Terrón, the fact that there are more and more women in the regattas is a very good sign, “but there is still a lot of work to be done” , she says. “These types of initiatives give women much more visibility than they usually have and that is very important to continue attracting more female sailors. I think that a very strong commitment is being made in this sector, more and more, and that it is working, but we have to continue working”

In the class in which they compete, that of J80, there will also be a mixed team, that of the couple formed by Luis de Mira and Susana Baena, but they will have to face the male teams since it has not been possible to form a mixed class due to lack of boats (the committee required the participation of at least 4).

Where there will be a mixed section will be in the ORC class, in which 4 crews made up of men and women have signed up to participate. They are those of Carolina Martínez and Miguel Ángel Fernández (RCN A Coruña), Víctor Carrión and Ana Sardiña (CN Beluso), Elena Raga and Miguel Sterner (MRCYB); and Miguel Barros and Paula Rey (MRCYB).

In total, 36 sailboats (at this time the registration period has not yet closed) manned by only two sailors, will compete this Saturday in the Rías Baixas in a regatta that will begin at eleven in the morning from inside the bay of Baiona. It will be there that the starting horn will be given for a route of about 30 miles that will take the participants, if the wind allows it, to the Ons area, to return again to Baiona.

Faced with a complicated weather forecast, which could make the intensity of the wind drop, the committee has also prepared an alternative that would involve taking the sailboats through the interior of the Vigo estuary towards the Rande bridge, placing various points of possible return in case it were necessary to shorten or even finish the route earlier than planned.

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 MRCYB, José Luis Álvarez, and the Director of the South Galicia Zone of MRW, Santos Almeida, will participate, among others. event sponsor.

These new titles will be awarded as long as there is a minimum number of boats registered in each category, something that will not be known until the closing of the registration period next Friday the 4th. So far, 17 double teams have already confirmed their participation in the event, including 12 contenders for the ORC title and 5 J80 monotypes.

The winners of the last edition of the Galician A Dos Championship were Javier de la Gándara and Diego Fernández, who on board the Okofen proclaimed themselves winners with full authority. They managed to get 15 and 20 minutes ahead of the second and third classified: Ay Carmela! (Bouzas Maritime Lyceum) manned by Juan Martínez and Ignacio Correa; and the Orion by Javier Pérez and Esteban Gañete (MRCYB).
