Monday 23rd August 2021 – PRESS RELEASE with Mike Smith
Club Náutico de Jávea has losed the 47th edition of its annual Sailing Week, the great nautical social-sporting event that it organized every August to highlight the important of nautical sports and sailing in general.
This year’s event has been very special since the 2020 edition has to be cancelled due to the restrictions applied to combat the spread of COVID-19 and, indeed, some of the usual social events that complement Sailing Week, such as the paellas and the children’s party, still couldn’t take place.
Even so, on the sporting side of the occasion, several different tournaments took place for children’s sailing, dinghy sailing, motor boats and cruisers with the event culminating in the prestigious Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy and the Commodore Federico Giménez Trophy.
The winner of the former was Dominique Luna board the Django, with Antonio Gadea’s Ardora III in second place and Jeroni Camarera’s Espitos I in third spot.
In the Commodore trophy, it was Espitos I which came in first, followed by Mike Marquès’ Jéronimo II and Javier Poole’s 3 Pataro in third.
