Exciting second stage of the Vitaldent Trophy organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club. The wind conditions, with peaks of up to 20 knots, and the sea, with waves exceeding three metres, filled the regattas held this afternoon in the bay of Baiona with emotion.
Rui Ramada’s Miudo, skippered on this occasion by his daughter Francisca Barros, won the day after achieving three second places in the three races held. The crew led by the Portuguese sailor managed to prevail over her two toughest rivals on the water, Virazón, skippered by Gerardo Alonso, and Willy Caamaño’s Alumisel. Both did a great job in the water and placed second and third respectively, separated by just one point.
Ferralemes, with Enrique Porto at the helm, came out ready to fight back and beat the bronze achieved on the first day, but finally fell off the provisional podium and had to settle for a meritorious fourth place.
The Luna Nueva of Juan Luis Tuero, skippered today by José Gándara; Namasté by Luis de Mira and Pazo de Cea by Rita Hernández are placed in fifth, sixth and seventh position. The Cormorant Nautical School closes the classification, which did not compete today.
The next appointment with the Vitaldent Trophy, organized exclusively for the J80 class, will be on Saturday, February 13. The date will coincide with the 420 Galician Championship, which is also organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club.
