Virazón wins the J80 Class SabadellGallego League

· The boat skippered by Miguel Lago won the championship after winning three of the four days of tests held in the bay of Baiona

The Luna Nueva of Juan Luis Tuero and the Alumisel of Guillermo Caamaño won silver and bronze in the one-design competition at the Monte Real Club de Yates

· One of the objectives of the SabadellGallego Class J80 League was to make this type of boat known in Galicia and promote its participation in regattas

It was placed leader from the first day of tests held on October 17 and no other boat was able to unseat it from that first position in the remaining three days. After demonstrating its power on the water, the Virazón, skippered by Miguel Lago, with Juan Lago, Javier Lago and Gerardo Alonso on board, won the SabadellGallego J80 Class League, organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club.

He did it this afternoon in the bay of Baiona, in the fourth and last stage of the championship, which was held for 2 hours with ideal conditions for the competition. Sun, good sea and a wind of about 15 knots on average, with peaks of up to 19, allowed the J80 to navigate easily between the buoys placed by the committee to mark the poles of the course.

Of the three races held this afternoon, Virazón won two and Luna Nueva one. Juan Luis Tuero’s men had a fantastic regatta and that first place and the two seconds they achieved in the other races allowed them to move up one place in the general classification.

Thus, and after adding today’s results with those of the previous days, the final classification was led, as we say, by Virazón, who won the league gold. Luna Nueva by Juan Luis Tuero, Miguel Cidrás, Rogelio Torres and Pedro Núñez took silver, and bronze went to Alumisel by Guillermo Caamaño, Marcos Alonso, José Quiñones and Jacobo Vecino.

Completing the classification are Pazo de Cea by María Campos, Namasté by Luis de Mira and Ferralemes by Enrique Porto.

The J80 League, sponsored by SabadellGallego, with the collaboration of Vitaldent and the Xunta de Galicia, had among its objectives to publicize this class of boats in Galicia, and promote their participation in regattas.

The awards ceremony held at the Monte Real Yacht Club was attended by Pepe Celada, representing the sponsor SabadellGallego, Raul Costas, councilor for maritime activities of Baiona, and Genoveva Pereiro, vice-commodore of the Monte Real Yacht Club

The next appointment with the Monte Real competitions will be next January with the Winter League, also organized exclusively for J80 class boats.
