The Monte Real Club de Yates closes this weekend the 2018-2019 season of its Sailing School with the celebration of the last two days of the Baitra Social League, a competition that has been taking place since last September in Baiona.
Some thirty sailors between the ages of 7 and 17 from the Laser, Optimist and Initiation classes will meet in the bay of Baiona on Saturday from half past two in the afternoon and on Sunday from half past eleven in the morning to measure strength in the last six rounds of the championship.
There will be six regattas in a field of buoys in the shape of a trapezoid in which laserists and optimists must complete a single lap, and which will be shortened for beginner sailors. If the forecast is fulfilled, they will do so with good wind, from the south and intensities above 10 knots on Saturday and somewhat weaker on Sunday.
The brothers Marquina and Martín Montes, reach the final in the highest positions in the classification and with many ballots to make a place for themselves on the winners’ podium, since they maintain a certain distance with the rest of the competitors.
In the lead, with 31 points, is Pablo Marquina, who won the Social League last year, and his brother Yago comes third in the final with 45 points. Martín Montes holds the provisional silver with 42 points.
With the end of the Baitra Social League, the starting signal will be given to the activities of the summer program that the Monte Real Yacht Club has prepared for this summer, which include proposals for all types of audiences .
Daytime sailing camps and weekly dinghy sailing courses are the proposals aimed at the smallest of the house, between 7 and 16 years old. For adults, the Baionese club offers the possibility of taking weekly cruising sailing courses and courses to learn to sail in one day. The summer program is completed with sailing activities at sunset or sailing to the Cíes Islands, aimed at a more familiar audience or groups of friends.
