Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen once again demonstrated this Saturday why it is one of the best J80s in Galicia after winning, once again, the Winter League that the Monte Real Club de Yates organizes for the 8-meter monotypes.

The sailboat led by the historic sailor from Vigo and with Diego Fernández and Jaime Gándara as base crew, who were joined by different sailors in the different days, added its fifth title in the competition (the fourth consecutive) after those achieved in 2017, 2019, 2020 and 2021.

He did it with a final balance of 14 points derived from almost perfect partials (1-2-1-3-1-1-1-1-1-1-1), from discarding his two worst results from the classification (a 4th place and one offline) and to beat the second and third classified by 12 and 29 points.

The general director of Baitra Accesorios Navales, Juan Carlos González, was in charge, as sponsor of the event, of delivering the trophy to a team that will surely be talked about in the remainder of the regatta season, not only in the J80 leagues but also in the other competitions in which the 8 meters participate with their own class.

After collecting his award, Javier de la Gándara was very satisfied with having achieved this fifth league victory, and if he did so, he said, “in a competition in which it is increasingly difficult to win because -as he assured- the quality of the crews has increased a lot and there are teams that sail very well” . For the sailor it was a “very complete league, with many tests and very good wind “, which allowed them to enjoy sailing.

The awards ceremony and subsequent fellowship dinner put an end to a day in which the nerves in the water were especially noticeable. Everyone wanted to adjust their positions as much as possible and improve their results for the final classification and they ended up forcing a general call in the first race and a couple of off-lines in the other two races.

With a north wind that blew with good intensity and a regatta field located between the Virgen de la Roca and las Estelas, the first two races were for Okofen and the third and last for Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto, who finished second. overall and took the Winter League silver with 22 points.

Manel Cunha’s Marías, who had all the ballots to close the winners’ podium, did not go out to compete this Saturday, and that caused him to lose all his options to hang a medal. He left Alejandra Suárez’s Cansino free to climb into the third drawer and hang the bronze with 43 points.

The group of the five best in the one design league was closed by Spaco de Santiago Estévez, fourth with 59 points; and the Portuguese Marías, fifth with 69. The trophies were delivered, in addition to the CEO of Baitra, Juan Carlos González; the mayor of Baiona, Carlos Gómez; and the deputy for Economic Promotion of the Pontevedra Provincial Council, Raquel Giráldez.

The Baitra J80 Winter League held during these first four months of the year in Baiona once again revealed the good health enjoyed by the 8 meters in Galicia. A state that is not only reflected in the progressive increase in units but also in the improvement that led to the arrival of coach Carlos Llamas among the crews to prepare the teams for the Spanish Championship and the World Cup that Baiona will host this year and the next. .

With the closing of the one-design league, the Monte Real Yacht Club is now preparing to launch its cruise season, which will begin this month of April with the celebration, on the 23rd, of the Comunica Trophy; and the Repsol Trophy on April 29 and 30 and May 1. The registration period for both competitions is now open through the club’s website.

The Okofen was convincing this Sunday in the waters of Baiona in the penultimate day of the J80 Winter League, which the Monte Real Club de Yates has been organizing since last January with the sponsorship of Baitra Accesorios Navales.

The crew led by Javier de la Gándara signed two solid victories in the two races held and set the bar even higher for their most direct competitors, Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto and Manel Cunha’s Marías, who are second and third respectively. .

There were no changes in the provisional podium in terms of positions, but there were changes in the score that separates the three candidates to win the championship, which is now much wider. The 12 points that Okofen has allow them to already dream of the laurels of the league, by taking an 8-point advantage over Alboroto, which has 20; and 15 to Marías, with 27.

As had happened on Saturday, the regattas this Sunday were also very complicated by the wind. A first test was started that had to be canceled on the first beat. After changing the regatta course, the fleet was able to sail a sleeve that ended up shortened but that allowed the day’s scoring to open. Okofen, Spaco and Cansino got the best score. In the second and last test of the day, which could be played in its entirety, Okofen repeated victory and Alboroto and Marías entered behind them.

This being the case, and waiting for what happens on the last day, if Javier de la Gándara’s crew maintains the streak and the good work of the previous stages (in which they signed some partials of 1-2-1-3 -1-1-4-1-1-1), everything points to the final victory.

The crews that compete in the Monte Real one-design league will meet again on April 2, the day on which the sixth and final phase of the Baitra J80 Winter League is scheduled to be held.

That first Saturday of April, in addition to the competition being resolved, the Monte Real will deliver the prizes to the winners of the championship and will open the doors to the cruise competitions that will arrive in Baiona at the end of the month, with the celebration of the Comunica Trophy (April 23 ) and the Repsol Trophy (April 29 and 30 and May 1).

The day had two undisputed protagonists: Alejandra Suárez’s Cansino, who shone -and won- in the first test, completing the course in a very solid way, always in the lead and far from his rivals; and Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen, who gave their rivals no respite in the second and third heats, and consolidated their leadership in the competition.

The application of a discard allowed him to eliminate his worst result (a third) and with a few partials of four first places and a second in the tests held so far, he remains in the lead with six points.

The Gándara team, in which his son Jaime and Diego Fernández continue to form the hard core, was joined this Saturday by another great sailor, Iago Carrera.

It was the emotional note of a day that also had its happiest and most fun part thanks to the crew of the Pazo de Cea, who sailed all the tests dressed as pirates and waving a pirate flag on their sailboat.

The lack of wind prevented the Galician J80 fleet from debuting this Saturday in the Baitra J80 Winter League, organized by the Monte Real Club de Yates with the sponsorship of Baitra Accesorios Navales.

Although the regatta committee managed to start the first of the three tests scheduled to open the competition, the sailboats were only able to complete one of the two laps that included the task.

In the middle of the first lap the difficulties for the crews with roles and drops of wind in the offset area already began. Despite everything, most of the boats managed to go up to the next beacon area, but when they were about to start the second round, the situation became untenable and the committee decided to cancel the test.

The regatta was then put on standby waiting for the wind to enter with the direction and intensity necessary to resume the competition, but it was not possible and the fleet was forced to return to land without having been able to open markers.

The next appointment with the Baitra J80 Winter League is on February 5 with the second of the six days that will be in contention.

The Baitra J80 Winter League that the Monte Real Club de Yates has organized in Baiona since last January enters its final stretch this Saturday with the dispute of the penultimate day of tests.

Starting at three in the afternoon, the 18 sailboats that aspire to the title of the one-design league will meet in the bay of Baiona to compete in three new regattas with which to continue defining positions for the end of the competition, scheduled for May 29.

This Saturday there will be three new tests between buoys, of the windward-leeward type with a double loop, in which Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen has proven to be the best so far. With partials of 4-3-1-1-2-1, the crew of the sailor from Vigo has been at the top of the classification for several days but without being able to relax too much, since there are several candidates to steal the lead.

From second place, Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Rampage is another of the firm contenders for the title. In the last stage, being able to rule out his worst result (12 points), which had been penalizing him a lot in the table, allowed him to rise to the silver position, just 4 points behind the leader.

A little further down, in third position, with provisional bronze, is the Portuguese crew of the Marías, led by Manel Marías. They are separated by 9 points from Okofen, but the team is one of those that usually surprises, so a possible Portuguese victory cannot be ruled out yet.

Somewhat more unstable with the previous scores was Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino who, with very different partials, is in fourth position, closely followed, just 2 points apart, by La Galera from A Coruña, with Miguel Fernández Vasco in front.

Okofen snatches the lead from Marías

 

· The sailboat led by Javier de la Gándara signed the best results of the Baitra J80 Winter League this Saturday and was able to climb from fourth to first position

· The Portuguese crew of the Marías, who were leading the one-design competition, ran out of steam on the second day and had to settle for second place

· El Cansino by Fernando Yáñez managed to stay in the third position that he dragged from the first day and the climb of the day was carried out by El Alboroto by Juan Carlos Ameneiro rising from position 12 to 4

· The one-design competition of the Monte Real Club de Yates sponsored by Baitra Accesorios Navales resumes its tests on April 10

Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen gave no respite this Saturday in Baiona and in addition to achieving the best results on the second day of the Baitra J80 Winter League, managed to take the lead from Manel Marías’ Marías, who was in the lead after the stage inaugural.

The Gándara sailboat, led by the historic sailor from Vigo and crewed by his two sons Jaime and Javier, with the usual Diego Fernández also on board, signed two first and one third and once again demonstrated why it is one of the favorites to win with the ultimate victory.

In the ascent of the Okofen, the fall was for the young Portuguese crew of the Marías, who was affected in the final classification of the day for crossing in sixth position in the first test. Despite recovering pace in the other two, in which he achieved a second and a third place, he had to settle for the second step of the provisional podium.

Just the opposite happened to Fernando Yáñez’s Cansino. It started strong, with a second place, but it lost steam as the regatta day progressed; and the fourth and eighth places that he signed in the rest of the races did not allow him to climb positions beyond the third place that he had dragged from the first stage.

El Cansino by Fernando Yáñez remains in third position – Photo © Rosana Calvo

In fourth position is Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto, in which this Saturday the presence of the Spanish J80 champion, Javier Aguado, was noted. His good work helped the crew climb positions from 12th to 4th place. It was, without a doubt, the climb of the day, for one of the sailboats with the best results (one first, one second and one fourth in the tests held).

Closing the Top 5 of the Baitra J80 Winter League we find Santiago Estevez’s Spaco, which does not change its position with respect to the first day. They are followed by Luna Nueva by Juan Luis Tuero; the SDN Cormorant of Francisco J. Martínez; and the Ferralemes by Jaime García.

Miguel Lago’s Virazón and Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen won silver and bronze in a competition that maintained great excitement until the final day, when the winners’ podium was decided

· The Infinitus Rent Trophy has served the Galician J80 fleet as training for the Spanish Championship of the class to be held in Baiona at the end of the month as part of the Repsol Trophy

The Portuguese sailboat Miudo, armed by the prominent Portuguese sailor Rui Ramada and skippered by his daughter Francisca Barros, won this weekend the Infinitus Rent Trophy, the J80 one-design winter league organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club from last January.

After more than three months of competition, the championship said goodbye to Baiona with the sixth and last day of tests, in which the participating sailboats disputed the last three regattas that ended up defining the winners’ podium. Three races that were held in very good conditions and that allowed the excitement to be maintained until the end, with the crews giving their best on the water.

The grand prize of the Infinitus Rent Trophy was finally won by the Miudo, a boat from the BB Douro club in Vila Nova de Gaia that sails through the Monte Real Club de Yates, in which Francisca Barros and Afonso Leite alternated at the helm. Both skippers, the youngest in the competition, kept the Miudo in the positions of honor during practically all the tests and resolved the championship on the last day, ascending to the first position.

Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen, who reached the final among the favorites to win, tied on points in the standings with Miudo, once again sneaked onto the winners’ podium, but this time with the medal bronze. The silver of the Infinitus Rent Trophy went to Miguel Lago’s Virazón, who fought throughout the competition to stay in the positions of honor and finally succeeded.

El Cansino of the commodore of Monte Real, Fernando Yáñez; and the Meltemi of the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña, skippered by Guillermo Blanco; They maintained the fourth and fifth position that they had dragged from the penultimate day.

The end of the competition was put by a fellowship dinner held in Baiona, which was attended by shipowners, sailors, collaborators, regatta committee managers and the organizing club. Also present were the operations manager of Infinitus Rent, Luis Ángel Martín; the company’s business development director, Alberto Rodríguez; and Jorge Otero, commercial delegate in Spain and Latin America of the sponsoring firm, a company born from the union of four technology leasing marketing companies in Spain, with more than 7 years of experience in the sector and an annual turnover of around 12 million of euros.

Prepared for the Spanish Championship of the J80 class

The Infinitus Rent Trophy has served the Monte Real Yacht Club in preparation for the Spanish J80 Championship, which the club will host at the end of next April. Its one-design fleet, the largest in Galicia and one of the most outstanding in the peninsula, will participate in its entirety in the national class, to which the club’s crews attend with aspirations of winning the title.

Baiona will begin to receive the sailboats arriving from different parts of Spain in the last week of April and, after a previous day, reserved for the registration and weighing of the crews, the competition will begin on Saturday the 28th, and will continue for 4 days. The national J80, framed in the Repsol Trophy, will end on May 1st with the last races and the awards ceremony for the winners.

The J80 make way for the rest of the classes

The J80 monotypes opened the sports calendar of the Monte Real Club de Yates for this 2018, a program that includes a total of 15 competitions. After the Infinitus Rent Trophy, held between January and March, April will be the month of the Comunica Trophy and the Repsol Trophy, the traditional spring regatta that the club has been holding for more than 40 years.

The classic 6m sailboats will be the protagonists of the month of May, in the regatta 525 anniversary of the arrival of the caravel La Pinta; and in June the Galician Championship of Solitaires and Two will be held in Baiona.
