JAVEA TO HOST PARALYMPIC SAILING ELITE

During the first weekend in May, Club Náutico de Jávea will be hosting the National Championships - Category 2.4mR in which the paralympic sailing elite of Spain will be competing, including Jávea's own Rafa Andarias, who was reserve in the Paralympic Games in London in 2012 and now aspires to win a place in the Spanish Paralympic Team for Rio de Janeiro in 2016. The championships, organised by CN Jávea with the collaboration with the town hall and sponsored by Fermax and Madriferr, will be held in the waters off Jávea between May 1st and May 4th  in a special configuration that will allow visitors, tourists or residents to enjoy the competition.

javeamigos.com | JAVEA - AMJASA SALADAR 17 Apr 2014

COUNCIL REQUESTS AUTHORISATION FOR WORK ON SAN ANTONI RAVINE
The municipal water company AMJASA has recently completed improvements to the supply network in the Saladar area, a total investment of 278,673 euros. This work was carried out to address major problems with the supply of water to the Portitxol area. The low altitude of the Saladar means that water has to be forced under high pressure to the pumping station at Portitxol which sits at a height of 65m above sea level. This high pressure combined with the age of the infrastructure which was installed in the early 70s has resulted in numerous failures over the past couple of years. Therefore AMJASA saw improvements to this part of the network as a priority in its investment plan and at the end of the last year it took advantage of the construction of a new roundabout in the Saladar area to carry out those improvement works.

RESURFACING CAMPAIGN AND LANDSCAPING PROPOSED FOR 2014
A few million surplus in the council coffers has allowed the town hall to propose several projects to improve the image of the town as well as a new social employment plan to help those most affected by the economic crisis. Plans include another major re-surfacing campaign, the landscaping of Avenida Augusta and a new access to the sea via Calle Vicenza. Of the 4.2 million euros surplus, some 3 million will be invested in a variety of schemes detailed by mayor José Chulvi and councillor Oscar Antón. The proposals will be submitted to council at the end of the month. The councillor for Finance explained that there are a number of projects which have been identified as "financially sustainable", i.e. those that would not generate further spending in the future as required by regulations set out by Central Government in Madrid. He added that these strict rules have restricted investment in cultural and sporting facilities.

CD JAVEA LADIES WIN AGAIN WHILST LADS SUFFER MIXED FORTUNES
In the Regional Preferente, CD Jávea suffered a third successive defeat, a 1-0 loss at promotion-chasing UD Beniganim, to remain rooted in mid-table and playing out the final five games simply for pride. However, there was better news in the Primera Regional where CD Jávea 'B' thrashed Alicante Recreativo 4-1 at home to keep alive their slim hopes of avoiding relegation. Three games remain - all against fellow strugglers, including a home clash this weekend against woeful bottom club CF Gandía 'B' - but will the five point gap be just that bit too much to overcome? For the ladies who have been competing in their first season at Primera Regional level, a 2-1 home win over Crevillente CF, their third victory in four games, sees CD Jávea rise to 8th spot, their safety assured after last week's stunning victory over promotion hopefuls Hércules CF.

CD JÁVEA LADIES SHOW THE WAY TO WIN AS THEY SECURE SAFETY
The ladies of CD Jávea have assured themselves of safety in the Primera Regional Femenino Grupo III after a hard-fought 1-0 win over promotion chasers Hércules CF who found it to be unlucky 13 as their 12-game unbeaten run came to an end thanks to a penalty from Peke.
