Baiona, March 11, 2016.- The J80 Class Winter League of the Monte Real Club de Yates enters its final stretch this weekend in Baiona with the celebration of the last two days of regattas in the waters of the bay.

After the previous stage, held on February 28, the monotypes return to competition tomorrow, Saturday, from three in the afternoon and on Sunday from eleven in the morning to compete in the final tests of the championship.

They will coincide in the water with six boats from Monte Real, in which students from the Sailing Cruise School of the baiones club and the BBDouro Sailing School, from Vila Nova de Gaia, will sail, which this weekend have an exchange day scheduled and fraternization.

Both fleets will share the regatta field in the bay. If the wind is good, for the J80 there will be six tests, three each day. The regatta committee will try to complete the program to compensate for the test day, which had to be suspended last February due to an orange alert due to bad weather.

Waiting for what happens over the weekend, the provisional gold of the championship is held by Virazón, who on the last day managed to recover the leadership that they had lost in the previous one. If this result were to consolidate, the crew skippered by Miguel Lago would continue their victories in the Monte Real one-design competitions, since last November they won the J80 Autumn League.

The Miudo of the Portuguese Rui Ramada is, so far, the strongest candidate to prevent Virazón from revalidating victory. He is second overall and everything indicates that this weekend he will fight on the water.

Willy Caamaño’s Alumisel and Enrique Porto’s Ferralemes, in third and fourth position separated by just one point of difference, will also try to secure a step on the winners’ podium.

The classification is completed by Luna Nueva, by Juan Luis Tuero; the Pazo de Cea, by Rita Hernández; Namasté, by Luis de Mira; and the Cormorán Nautical School, by Iván Pérez Gándaras.

Once the two days of tests are over, the Monte Real Club de Yates will celebrate, on Sunday, the awards ceremony for the winners.
