Winds of up to 25 knots and a perfect state of the sea will allow records to be broken in the Galician Solitaire and Two-Handed Championship – Don Pedro de Soutomaior Regatta, which takes place this weekend in the Rías Baixas. The boats will be able to reach good speeds and finish the planned route, reducing the times recorded in previous editions.
The Galician Solitary and Two-handed Championship is one of the most prestigious nautical events in Galicia and quite a challenge for sailors, because they face a long route with a reduced crew, one or two sailors at most. There are 60 miles of crossing through the Vigo, Pontevedra and Arousa estuaries, starting and finishing in the bay of Baiona.
The competition, which will start tomorrow, Saturday at 11 am, with the participation of some 30 boats, can be followed minute by minute via the Internet thanks to the technology developed by the Valencian company Tracemyway .
A GMS geolocation system with a tracker on board the boats will allow anyone who wishes to know the exact position of the boats at all times or relive the development of the test once it has finished, as if it were a repetition . Real-time monitoring can be done through a computer or smartphone, accessing an online platform created especially for the regatta.
The Galician Solitary and Two-Handed Championship – Don Pedro de Soutomaior Regatta is organized, for the third consecutive year, by the Monte Real Club de Yates de Bayonne, and has the collaboration of Nordés gin and Nordic Mist tonic.
