The Monte Real Noble Room was this past weekend a representative framework for the important protocol signing carried out for the start-up of the 1st Atlantic Cruise Circuit, an initiative led in Spain by the Bayonne Yacht Club, with the collaboration of Turismo de Galicia and Turismo Rías Baixas, and shared with the Portuguese entities of the Clube Naval de Cascais and the Marina Douro from Porto.
The staging of the important agreement was captured by Miguel Lago, Commodore del Monte Real, and Diogo Barros, representing the Portuguese nautical and sports institutions.
The I Atlantic Cruise Circuit will be made up of three top-level events, the starting point being the pontoons of the Marina Douro marina, on June 22 and 23.
The second of the appointments will arrive in the month of August, with the start-up of the Cascais de Vela, on August 30 and 1 and September, respectively.
The end of the Atlantic Circuit will take place in the Bay of Baiona, as the Prince of Asturias Trophy is the last scoring regatta, and it will be held from September 6 to 8, coinciding with the celebration of the Xunta de Galicia President Trophy and with the Championship of Spain of Cruises.
The initiative arises from the excellent relations between the Yacht Club and the Portuguese clubs, which seek with the creation of the Atlantic Circuit to increase the exchange of fleets, increasing the sporting, cultural and tourist interest between both countries.
The absolute winner will come from the best score obtained after the celebration of the three regattas, with the club he represents having the responsibility of guarding the silver trophy for a year that will symbolize his triumph in the great sporting event.
