The Bay of Cádiz bids farewell to the fleet with another ‘textbook’ day

El Puerto de Santa María, 29th June 2024.- The 1956 Maelar 30 ‘Seventy Senda Azul’ of the CN Estrella del Viento, from Málaga, has been proclaimed champion of the VII Semana Clásica de Puerto Sherry, Memorial Pedro Bores, and with its impeccable triumph lifts the Spanish Classics Cup that it came to the bay of Cadiz to win. The 11.50 metre long boat owned by owner Segundo Pablos with Dani Cuevas at the helm, takes away the thorn from the previous edition in which it lost on the last day by one point, and wins its third Classic Week, unbeaten this time after winning today the third and last race of the Andalusian regatta, which counts towards the prestigious Trofeo Clásicos Mare Nostrum. For the third consecutive day, the Bay of Cadiz was splendid, with winds of 11 knots of average intensity for a course of 8 miles for the big boats and 7.2 miles for the MINI class.

The Malaga ‘Seventy Senda Azul’ also wins in its class, with the second place for the boat of Manuel Galnares ‘Centinela IV’ with flag of the RCMT Punta Umbria, which goes out the front door with a second place in the last race, with which it resolves on its side the tie on points with the ‘Disparate’ of Ricardo Contreras, today 4th and third in the overall final. Something similar happens in the Espíritu Tradición class, where the victory of the ‘Odiseus’ of Jose María Chávarri and Juan Valdivia is confirmed with three out of three, with second and third place for the ‘Salina Tres’ of Mariangeles Pérez of the RCN de Cádiz and the ‘Tira Neruda’ of Javier Moreno for the CN de León, penalised for an out of line, which in comparison to the second place of the boat from Cádiz forces it to drop one place to third. Finally in the Época class, the 15M ‘The Lady Anne’ of the shipowner Jaime Botín wins unbeaten over the ‘Gipsy’, a boat of the Fundación Vela Clásica launched in 1927.

In the MINI class, Antonio Aliada’s ‘Infiel’ based at CN Puerto Sherry turned the scoreboard around and won the race, followed by Nicholas Lock’s ‘Madcap’ under the Spanish flag, and Javier Betancourt’s ‘Paradise’ from CN Puerto Sherry, which was unable to defend first place after breaking its mast in the middle of the race.

The VII Semana Clásica de Puerto Sherry, Memorial Pedro Bores, which ends this Saturday in Cadiz waters, has been organised by the Club Náutico Puerto Sherry and the Fundación Vela Clásica de España, with the main sponsorship of the Junta de Andalucía, the Diputación de Cádiz, Marina Puerto de Santa María, and the companies Grupo Cuñado and Grupo Omega, together with Gipsy Blu 1927 and Bodegas Miguel Domecq – Entrechuelos, the endorsement of the RFEV and the FAV, and the collaboration of the City Council of El Puerto de Santa María as an asset of the summer of El Puerto de Santa María.
