The 48th Sailing Week of the Club Náutico de Madrid has passed its first weekend of sailing, dedicated to the cruise class regattas and the different social events. Last week the Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy and the Comodoro Federico Gimeno Trophy regattas were held, events in which a total of 50 boats participated.

The absolute winner of the Trofeo Sir Thomas Lipton was Aquarelle from the Real Club Náutico de Valencia, skippered by Arturo Meseguer. While in the classification of the cruises with the flag of the Club Náutico Jávea, the best was Jávea III skippered by Pilar Azcón; second was Boher (Carlos Boronat) and third was Little Nellie by Alejandro Sánchez.

The Trofeo Comodoro Federico Gimeno went to Beatriz Dominguez skippering Ascaló (CN Jávea) in the ORC 2 category; Espitos UN from Jeroni Camarena (CN Oliva) in ORC-1 and Miguel Marqués from Real Club Náutico De Dénia with Jerónimo 2 was the best in the ORC-0 category.

The awards ceremony was held on Saturday night, in an act that was attended by the president of the Federación de Vela de la Comunitat Valenciana, Carlos Torrado, the lieutenant of the Xàbia Guardia Civil, José Antonio López , and representatives of Living Ceramics, Alfonso Atienza and Paul Ribaut, as well as the board of directors of Club Náutico Jávea.

During the ceremony, Alejandro Sánchez of Little Nellie was chosen as the Owner of the Year and also received the award for having been the best in the Trofeo Cuatro Estaciones (which is disputed throughout the year).

In addition, the yacht club’s Board of Directors has created a new trophy this year in this Sailing Week known as the Espíritu de Tradición, which rewards boats prior to 1985. The winner was Pilar Azcón’s Jávea III. In second position was Francisco Pascual’s Pinta III vessel and third was Arturo Miquel’s Seraphim.
