Baiona, Vigo and Combarro share the Repsol Trophy prizes

 

· The Magical of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, the Sagar V of the Ro Yacht Club of Combarro and the Secolite, the Yess, the Alboroto and the Bouvento of the Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona were the winners of the different classes in contention

The special sponsorship prize of 7,000 euros for the best J80 went to Javier Aguado’s Alboroto and Ángela Rodríguez’s Silleiro won the trophy for the best female crew

The weather was the protagonist of the 44th Spring Regatta, affecting the first two days with little wind and fog, and leaving the third and last stage blank, in which the planned test could not be held

· After the Repsol Trophy, the MRCYB is already focusing on its great event of the year: the ABANCA 52 SUPER SERIES – Baiona Sailing Week, the most prestigious monohull circuit in the world that will stop in Galicia at the end of the month

Baiona, Vigo and Combarro shared out the prizes of the last edition of the Repsol Trophy held these days in the Rías Baixas, a competition in which the weather played a major role and marked the three days of regattas.

After a first day in which the scarce wind only allowed the holding of one of the three scheduled tests in the bay of Baiona and a second stage in which the fog forced the coastal route between Baiona and Combarro to be shortened and made it difficult for the the fleet; This Sunday, on the third and last day of competition, the lack of wind left the markers blank. The last test of the program, a coastal route between Combarro and Baiona, was canceled and the final classification was defined with two tests for the J80 class and a single test for the rest of the classes.

In ORC 1-2-3 , the winner was Julio Rodríguez’s Magical. Their victory just a few weeks ago in the Comunica Trophy and this new victory in the Repsol Trophy make it clear that the crew of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo will be one of the teams to take into account in the Galician regatta season. The Sailway by Rodrigo Ojea (CM Canido); and Aceites Abril, from Jorge Pérez Canal (RCN Vigo), were second and third respectively.

On ORC 4 , the Sagar V of Rolando Andrade, of the Ro Yacht Club of Combarro, took the laurels of a class in which the Deep Blue 2.1 of Vicente Cid (RCN Vigo) and the Maracaná of Carlos García (RCM Aguete), they made with silver and bronze.

In ORC A2 , the good heads-up between the Portuguese Rui Ramada and the Galician Óscar Peixoto aboard the MRCYB’s Yess, allowed them to win and beat Luis Vidal and Eva Fernández’s Vagalume, who came second.

In J80 , Javier Aguado’s Alboroto was crowned the deserved winner of the class, after signing two first places in the two races held. He left the silver and bronze to Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen and Alejandra Suárez’s Cansino.

Special prizes for the best female crew and the best J80

In addition to the trophies in the different categories, two special prizes were up for grabs at this year’s Repsol Trophy. One, for the best female crew in the competition, went to the crew of Ángela Rodríguez’s Silleiro.

The other special prize, for the best J80, which was won by Javier Aguado’s Alboroto, consisted of a sponsorship of 7,000 euros so that the crew can attend the European Championship of the class that is being held this summer in France. With this initiative, the Monte Real Club de Yates intends to continue encouraging the J80 fleet ahead of the Spanish and world championships that the club will organize this year and next

Point and end to the Repsol Trophy and focus now on the SUPER SERIES

Thus, the Monte Real Club de Yates Spring Regatta said goodbye to its forty-fourth edition, reaffirming itself as one of the most interesting competitions on the Galician nautical scene, both for the number of participants and for the changes that are introduced year after year, which allows to give freshness to one of the most traditional regattas in Spain.

After culminating the nautical event with the awards ceremony for the winners, in which the manager and the head of Marine and Fishing of Repsol, Carlos Sánchez Nieto and Inés González Megido, participated; the mayor of Baiona, Carlos Gómez; and the president and vice president of the Monte Real Yacht Club, José Luis Álvarez and Alejandro Retolaza; Monte Real is already focusing on its great event in 2022: the ABANCA 52 SUPER SERIES · Baiona Sailing Week.

The most prestigious monohull circuit in the world will call at the Galician fishing village between the 23rd and 28th of this month and the Baion club already has everything ready for what will undoubtedly be the nautical event of the year in Galicia, sponsored by ABANCA and Xacobeo 21-22.

· The club from Baiona is preparing to launch a sports season with competition, fun and entertainment as the main ingredients

· The arrival next May in Baiona of the prestigious 52 SUPER SERIES will undoubtedly be the nautical event of the year in Galicia

· Monte Real will also organize the J80 Spanish Championship and the Galician Two-Handed Championship in 2022

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 Repsol Trophy crowns the new kings of Spring

· In the ORC class the winners were Yess Racing from Monte Real (ORC 1-2), Bosch Service Solutions from Canido (ORC 3), Nahela from A Guarda (ORC 4)

· In A2 the Q Talent of Javier Rey and Jorge Justo prevailed, in J80 the Okofen of Javier de la Gándara and in Fígaro the Tutatis of Miguel Montes

· The Monte Real regattas return next June 5 with the celebration of the Galician Championship of A Dos

After a first stage in which the sailboats had to circumnavigate the Cíes Islands, the second and last test began this afternoon in Baiona with much more expectation than wind. The regatta committee had to delay the start time of the race because the wind was insufficient, but the situation improved and as the crossing progressed, maximums of 15 knots were reached, which speeded up the navigation of the sailboats.

The Vigo estuary was the setting chosen for the route for all classes, with more or fewer miles depending on the category, and obligatory steps through areas such as Carallones, Toralla or Subrido, to return to Baiona again.

ORC CLASS 1-2

In the ORC 1-2 class, the Yess Racing of the Portuguese Rui Ramada, with a pendant from the Monte Real Club de Yates, consolidated the victory that had been dragging since the first day, and with two wins in the two contested races, they won the gold of the competition. The second and third position also did not vary with respect to the first day, and the silver and bronze went to two boats from the Real Club Náutico de Vigo: the Aceites Abril led by Luis and Jorge Pérez Canal; and Julio Rodríguez’s Magical.

Real Club Náutico de Vigo, which was one of the favorites to win, but finally had to settle for second place.

ORC-CLASS 4

In the ORC 4 class there were unexpected surprises. One of the favorites to win the title, Luis Pérez’s Balea Dous, from the Real Club Náutico de Rodeira, was disqualified due to a breach of the cruise regulations related to the weight of the crew and was left without the coveted laurels, which finally they went to Nahela de Víctor Álvarez, of the Club Náutico Alagua. The Albarellos by Fernando Rey, from the Monte Real Yacht Club; and the Forza Catro of Victor Fernández, occupied the second and third place in the final classification.

ORC-CLASS A2

In the A2 competition, with crews reduced to the maximum, the Q Talento of Javier Rey and Jorge Justo, from Monte Real Club de Yates, repeated the first place he had achieved on the opening day and took the final victory, becoming thus, a firm contender for the title of Galician champion of A2, which will be played in just a few weeks in Baiona. El Alalunga by Rodrigo Rodríguez and Carlos Cárdenas, from the Canido Maritime Club; and the Cinco Islas Albariño of Iñaki Carbajo and Miguel Fins, of the Club Náutico de Beluso, were second and third.

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.

The battle for Rande in the Repsol Trophy

 

· 50 sailboats will sail this Saturday to Rande Bridge to try to win the 43rd Monte Real Spring Regatta

· The crews will depart at the stroke of noon from Baiona towards the mythical bridge where they will turn to return again to the Bay of Baiona

Among the participants will be the April Oils of the Pérez Canal, the Unus of García Trigo and the Okofen of Javier de la Gándara, winners of the last edition

50 sailboats will sail this Saturday from Baiona to the Rande bridge to try to win the Repsol Trophy that the Monte Real Yacht Club is organizing for yet another year with the collaboration of the Spanish energy company.

The 43rd edition of the Baionese club’s Spring Regatta will begin at twelve noon inside the Baionese bay, where the crews will hear the starting horn for the coastal route that will take them to the Rande bridge.

They will have to navigate to the mythical infrastructure, one of the most emblematic in Spain, with a wind that promises to be favorable for the competition, blowing from the northwest with between 12 and 16 knots of intensity.

It will be precisely in the vicinity of the bridge where the sailboats could encounter the greatest difficulties of the test, with significant roles of wind or even “wells” without wind, the possibility of having to navigate between rafts and very different conditions between the north face and the south.

The Commodore of the Monte Real Club de Yates, Ignacio Sánchez Otaegui, who is also participating in the competition, was very excited about the route, not only because it represents a change from previous editions, but also because he believes it will be very exciting for the fleet . “The sailors will have to put themselves to the test and haggle -says Otaegui- with a strategy that will be influenced by knowledge of the Vigo estuary, the tides and the fine trim of the sails. It won’t be as much of a melee as on the windward-leeward layouts, but it will certainly be very exciting.”.

The Repsol Trophy will be decided over two days on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 May – Photo © Rosana Calvo

Once Rande has been reached, the sailboats must turn to head back to Baiona, where the end point of the route will be located, if the wind allows it, inside the bay and, if there are difficulties, in the Carallones area.

In this 2021 edition, which will not go to Sanxenxo as in previous years to avoid the restrictions and problems derived from COVID19, some of the winners of the last edition will participate, such as Aceites Abril by the Pérez Canal brothers, Unus by Luis García Trigo or Okofen by Javier de la Gándara, among others.

We will also see three women’s crews on the water from the Monte Real Women’s Sailing project, with which the club intends to increase the presence of women in the regattas held in Galicia.

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.
