· The April Oils, owned by Luis and Jorge Pérez Canal received a double congratulations after finishing second in its category and winning the Spanish Height Championship
The Fifty of the Monte Real Club de Yates de Bayona managed to climb to the top of the podium of the XXXIX Conde de Gondomar Trophy. The crew, led by Rui Ramada, took victory in Class 1, and this elevated them to the highest position in the competition.
The Portuguese took the gold of a trophy marked by adverse weather. If on Saturday it was the wind that made it difficult for the sailboats to navigate, forcing many to abandon the race, today it was intense fog that caused the windward-leeward race that was going to take place from noon to be suspended.
Thus, the classification was established based on the results of the tests of the previous three days. In the category of large boats, the Fifty took first place, leaving the second and third for the Castrosúa of Willy Alonso, also from Monte Real, and for the Aceites Abril, of Luis and Jorge Pérez Canal. The latter, from the Club Náutico de Vigo, received a double congratulations, also winning the Spanish Height Championship.
In Class 2, the places of honor were occupied by the Corsair, from the Club de Mar de Vilagarcía, with José Durán at the helm; the Bosch Services Solutions, from the Club Marítimo de Canido, skippered by Ramón Ojea; and the Fend La Bise, by Jean Claude Sarrade, from the Porto Yacht Club.
Luis García Trigo’s Unus, from the Club Náutico Punta Lagoa, won the gold of the class 3-4 boats. The silver went to Marías, owned by Manuel María Cunha, from Monte Real, and the bronze also went to the Baionese club, thanks to Juan Luis Tuero’s Luna Nueva.
The victory in the real-time competition of the J80 went to Marías, owned by Manuel María Cunha.
The awards ceremony for the XXXIX Conde de Gondomar Trophy was held this Sunday at the Monte Real facilities, with the presence of the club’s president, Rafael Olmedo; the mayor of Baiona, Jesús Vázquez Almuíña; the president of the Galician Sailing Federation, Manuel Villaverde; the R&D director of Marine Instruments, François Pino; and the vice-commodore of the club, Alejandro Retolaza.
The next competition at Monte Real is one of the great events for sailing lovers, the Príncipe de Asturias Trophy. It will be held between September 5 and 7. This is the most important competition organized by the Baiona club, which has been held continuously since its creation in 1985, and which attracts the elite of the national and international fleet to the waters of Baiona.
