The Monte Real Club de Yates de Bayona organizes for the third consecutive year the Galician Solitary and Two-handed Championship, one of the most prestigious nautical events in Galicia, with the added attraction of being a challenge for the most experienced sailors due to its length and the complexity of managing vessels with a reduced crew.

Sponsored by Don Pedro de Soutomaior, the competition will take place in the waters of the Bay of Baiona and the Vigo, Pontevedra and Arousa estuaries. The boats will sail with crews of one or two sailors maximum and must complete a course of about 60 miles. The planned itinerary includes a route departing from the bay of Baiona and passing through the Carallones and La Negra beacons, the Cíes Islands, the Picamillo, Fajilda, Esqueiros and Ter marks, the Ons and Onza Islands and the Islote dos Viños.

After a meeting of patrons on Friday afternoon, with tasting of Nordés gin and tonics and Nordic Mist, the competition will begin on Saturday the 14th at eleven in the morning and will last until Sunday the 15th. The public that wishes to follow it will be able to see the passing of sailboats from the Costa de la Vela and the O Grove peninsula. At the end of the regatta, scoring for the Galician Circuit of Solitaires and A Dos 2014, the awards ceremony will be held at the Monte Real headquarters, with a subsequent tasting of the Albariño Don Pedro de Soutomaior.

The Don Pedro de Soutomaior Regatta is once again integrated this year into the celebration of the Rafael Olmedo President Cup, the traditional event with the Solitaires and A Dos del Monte Real, which the club has been organizing for twenty-three years in honor of its president, Mr. Rafael Olmedo Limases.
