The Baltic 56 “Bionic Elk” assembled by José Quintero of Club de Mar San Amaro in a Coruña, is declared in the afternoon of Saturday, the overall winner of the Trophy Sea Maeloc Finisterre that has been concluded between the two major galician cities, with the organization of the real club Coruña and Vigo. A race of greater distance of many celebrated in the north and northwest of spain, with a total of 120 miles, managed to be held for the third time in this century after about twenty years without scheduled. This regatta was created in the year 1966 as a nexus of union of the races of the north and of the south of Galicia, and now immersed in a Sea of Maeloc, returns to fulfill his legacy foundation.

The predictions weather they spoke of the winds of the north with a speed of around ten knots… and the truth is that in a large part of the tour so it was… except with two exceptions: the break in the Friday afternoon to the through the Exterior Port of La Coruña and happened at dawn when the fleet was already in the area north of the Rías Baixas… the truth for not a few boats the descent from Sálvora to Vigo, it was a true calvary.

Who’s left standing of this break in the middle of the waters pontevedresas, was the gigate “Bionic Elk”, as he managed to escape from the burning by putting water through with their rivals… until the point it reached the finish line installed in front of the Marina of the Real Club Náutico de Vigo shortly after eight in the morning… with a time of 15.37.15, which resulted in an average above 7 knots.

In those moments, the chase group was in the waters of the archipelago of Ons, and in addition with little wind. The product of this… the second to arrive in real time was “Bosch Service Solutions” the Club Marítimo de Canido with the great Chuny Bermudez to the rod (with which he sailed his son) to anything less than about five hours… it’s 04.43.18!… the victory of the spectacular boat Quintero, it was a fact.

The third to reach Vigo was the “Eleko-Mambo” by Carlos Sampedro Curbera… the Hanse 400 from the Club Marítimo La Penela, led in nearly 21 minutes, the “Bodegas Benito Santos” the J108 that patronea Jorge Echevarrí, and that had been the best boat in the first 40 miles of the race in the union of Chuny Bermúez.

But the big surprise was to come, because after the favorite, favored also by the withdrawal of ships as the coruñeses “Mascato” and “Cocaco”, the ferrolano “Golfiño” José Naya or the giant of the Real Club Náutico de Portosín, the 65 feet of Astrid Arenas that I had to enter in San Vicente do Mar… the “3D Printing Atlantic” skippered by Guillermo Blanco managed to unseat several of the favorites, taking the second place in absolute being only surpassed by “Bionic Elk”.

Good edition of the Trophy Finisterre of the hand of the Sea of Maeloc, second act of this great project of the sailing galician cruise… the third installment for the next week, with an authentic entree: the Sea Regatta of Maeloc Rías Baixas that announces a large participation, of the order of 70 ships, being the headquarters amen of Vigo, Combarro and A Pobra do Caramiñal.
