Baiona, May 3, 2015.- They came ready to revalidate their victory in the Monte Real spring regatta, and they did so. The Fifty crew, led by Rui Ramada, managed to win the Repsol Trophy for the second consecutive year.

Wearing the organizing club’s pendant, the Portuguese won the gold of the competition after winning the two stages held on this bridge on May 1. Last Friday they covered, with a tailwind, the 19 miles that separate Baiona from Sanxenxo in just two and a half hours. This Sunday they used just over three hours to navigate, upwind, the 16 miles between Sanxenxo and Carallones.

Always sailing by your side, both on Friday and Sunday, the Aceites Abril , from the Real Club Náutico de Vigo. Despite making a great regatta, and overtaking him on several occasions, the boat of the brothers Luis and Jorge Pérez Canal, was not able to snatch the victory from Fifty. He finally won the silver of the competition, leaving the bronze to Bosch Service Solutions of the Club Marítimo de Canido, skippered by Ramón Ojea.

Very exciting was also the competition of the J80, which sailed very evenly throughout the course. Guillermo Caamaño’s Mi Moneda , which had already won the first stage, managed to prevail again in the second and emerge as the winner. The second position of the monotypes went to Virazón de Miguel Lago and third to Escuela Náutico Cormorán , with Ignacio Bolíbar at the helm.

In the figaro class, the places of honor went to Alberto Iglesias’ Tutatis , Octavio Villalba’s Ladeira and Amparo Mollá’s Erizana , who came first, second and third respectively.

After the competition ended, Repsol’s Deputy Director of Marine and Fisheries, Carlos Sánchez Nieto, presented the prizes to the winners.
