The fog and little wind conditioned the ILCA Spain Cup 6 in the Abra

The fog and the absence of wind conditioned the celebration of the ILCA Spain Cup 6 in the Biscayan waters of the Abra. In the end, the winners in the different categories, dominated by the Balearic Islands, were decided in only two rounds. 132 participants took part in this test, organized by the Real Club Marítimo del Abra-Real Sporting Club in the year of its 125th Anniversary, with difficult conditions throughout the three days of competition. On Friday the protagonist was the dense fog that entered the Abra, which forced the Regatta Committee to cancel the first day; In the second, despite the fact that the 10-knot northwest wind helped the championship start with the first test, that initial event could only be celebrated when the wind dropped noticeably afterward; and in the third and last one something of the same happened, with the Committee giving the first start for the two groups at 2:30 p.m. in the only route that took place in the Abra. An attempt was made to give another start, but the time limit set prevented it.

The ILCA Spain Cup 6 had its validity with two tests that scored. The Balearic Javier Plomer Quiroga, from CV Puerto d’Andratx, was the champion of this Cup, while the champion was also the Balearic Miriam Sitges, from C’an Pastilla. In the absolute and sub-19 category Javier Plomer, a first and a second place, prevailed ahead of Xavier García and Tim Lubat, both from the Real Club Náutico de Palma. In girls Miriam Sitges was the overall female winner. Sheila Martínez was second and Angela Andugar third, both from Club Náutico Campello. In the under-19 category, Adriana Castro, from the Real Club Náutico de Torrevieja, won, completing the podium with María Alejandra Correa, from Mahón, and Irene de Tomás, from the Real Club Náutico de Valencia.

In the female under-21 category, Miriam Sitges won, with Adriana Castro, from the Real Club Náutico de Torrevieja, second, and Claudia Adan, from the Club Náutica de Santa Pola, third.

The Las Arenas club’s ironing was a coming and going of almost 150 boats and sailors from different parts of the country who tried to navigate the Abra, generating a spectacular image.

This regatta was organized by the Real Club Marítimo del Abra-Real Sporting Club on behalf of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation, in collaboration with the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, the Basque and Biscay Sailing Federations, the Spanish Association of the ILCA class, the Mail and the sponsorship of the Getxo City Council.
