The Virazón won this afternoon in the bay of Baiona the third day of the Vitaldent J80 Trophy, organized by the Monte Real Yacht Club. Skippered by Miguel Lago and with Gerardo Alonso, Juan José Lago and Javier Lago completing the crew, the Virazón won two of the three tests held today, thus continuing to lead the general standings.
In second position is Mi Moneda, by Guillermo Caamaño, which this Saturday replaced the Jacobo Vecino cane. With America’s Cup sailor Laureano Wizner on board, Mi Moneda achieved a first place and two seconds in the races held this afternoon.
Luna Nueva, owned by Juan Luis Tuero, despite being last on this day, is third overall. The classification is completed by Luis de Mira’s Namasté, Iago Carballo’s Nortada and Roberto Fontán’s Ferralemes.
The three races held today were sailed with an unstable wind of 10 knots, which forced the regatta committee to shorten courses. Before the start of the competition, the fleet observed a minute of silence in honor of the president of the Monte Real Club de Yates, Don Rafael Olmedo, who passed away last Saturday.
The Vitaldent J80 Trophy continues tomorrow, Sunday, starting at 11 in the morning, with the fourth of the seven scheduled tests. The rest of the regattas will be held on March 14, 28 and 29.
