The 32nd Prince of Asturias Trophy receives King Juan Carlos on the second day of competition

· The crew of the Bribón Movistar led by the emeritus monarch in the 6m class placed second in the 6m combined general

The very scarce and shifting wind made it difficult for sailboats to navigate both inside the Bay of Baiona and at the anchorage of the Cíes Islands.

· The changes produced in the classifications and the approach of positions in the general augur an exciting final day tomorrow, Sunday

· The 32nd Prince of Asturias Trophy includes tonight the celebration in Baiona of the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards gala

Baiona, September 2, 2017.- The thirty-second edition of the Prince of Asturias Trophy, organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club and the Naval Military School of Marín, welcomed King Juan Carlos this Saturday, who traveled to Baiona to participate in the competition aboard the Bribón Movistar.

The emeritus monarch arrived at the Galician fishing village after eleven o’clock in the morning and, after being received by the president of the Monte Real Yacht Club, José Luis Álvarez, and the commanding director of the Marín Military Naval School, José María Núñez Torrente; and hold a preparatory meeting with his team, he went out on the water to compete among the 6-meter fleet.

The regatta committee planned for them to hold two tests which, despite the light wind of just 6 knots, could be completed without too many problems. The sailboats sailed inside the bay and the public of the nearby promenades and sandbanks could enjoy the competition of these boats of great beauty. Iñigo Echenique’s Capriche won the 6m classics, beating Miguel Lago’s Alibabá II and Francisco Botas’s Aida, second and third respectively. In the 6m dispute, Luis Martín Cabiedes’ Maybe won, and Don Juan Carlos’s Bribón Movistar came second. These last two boats lead the combined general classification of 6m classic and modern.

In the Óptica Studio ORC 1 class, the Pairo 8 of the nautical company from Vigo, led by the Olympian Jordi Xammar, was today at the head of the general classification, which is extremely close, with three boats in the positions of honor tied at 5 points. Behind the Pairo are the Xekmatt of Jose Carlos Prista and the April of the brothers Jorge and Luis Pérez Canal.

In the Aceites Abril ORC 2 class, Willy Alonso’s Sum Innovation continues to lead ahead of Delmar Conde’s Porto de Aveiro and Rui Ramada’s Atlantic MBA.

The Maracaná I of Luis Suarez, of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo, won today and continues to be the leader in the Gadis ORC 3 class. Second and third place in this classification go to Unus by Luis Manuel García and Fend la Bise by Jean Claude Sarrade.

In the Volvo Autesa ORC 4 class, the provisional podium is made up of three boats from Monte Real, Con Caalma, owned by Francisco Javier Rey; the Margem do Azul III by Andres Gomez and the Abal Abogados Lagar Pintos by Mariano Dios.

Roberto Reboredo’s Jandrocho Team, César Fernández Casqueiro’s Bombastic and Luis Bodelón’s Villano lead the standings for the Martin Miller ORC Open. And in the Storax Clásicos, the provisional gold, silver and bronze go to Blue Moon from Coruña, Pingüino Uno from Canido and Belisa from Agabace.

In the Solventis J80 class, which could only contest one test today and with many difficulties, Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen, from Monte Real Club de Yates, continues to lead. The Marina Coruña – Costa, owned by Pablo Martinez, placed the yacht from Coruña in second provisional position, and very close to him, separated by just two points, the Miudo del Monte Real, skippered by the Portuguese Francisca Barros, closes the provisional podium.

Portuguese accent also at the top of the ranking of the HELLO! Ladies Cup, led by Marta Ramada aboard the HELLO!. With 4 points, she is separated from the second and third classified, the girls from Hello Fashion Monthly from Monte Real and Hola.com from San Carles de la Rápita, who have 8 and 11 respectively.

Tomorrow, Sunday: third and last day and award ceremony for the winners

The 32nd Prince of Asturias Trophy ends tomorrow, Sunday, with the third and last day of tests, in which the entire fleet will once again be in contention, with an identical program to today’s day. There will be poles for the largest boats in the Cíes anchorage and for the monotypes in the interior of the bay, where the 6 meters will also compete. The rest of the boats will take part in coastal routes through different points of the Rías Baixas.

If the weather permits, the race committee will give the start for everyone at twelve noon, with the aim that the tests can be completely finished around five. At six o’clock, the Monte Real Club de Yates will host the awards ceremony for the winners, which will be presided over by King Juan Carlos and will be attended by numerous authorities.

In addition to the competition prizes, the Conde de Barcelona Trophy will be awarded to the best Portuguese ship, the Mary Woodward special prize to the best ship in the Solventis J80 class, the prize for the 5th Atlantic Cruise Circuit, and the President of the Xunta Trophy, of which the Prince of Asturias Trophy is the second and penultimate test.
