The organising clubs meet at the RCN Barcelona to analyse this year’s circuit.
The Vela Clásica Costa Brava regatta, organised by the CN Estartit, is the new addition to this year’s edition of the Trofeo Clásicos Mare Nostrum, the Spanish Classic Sailing Circuit, which this year adds a fifth event.
The news was confirmed after the meeting on 23 May at the RCN Barcelona of the clubs organising the classic yacht circuit. The meeting was attended by representatives of the RCN Barcelona, Club de Mar-Mallorca and Club Náutico Puerto Sherry, with Club Marítimo de Mahón excusing their attendance due to last minute difficulties.
Andrés de León, recently appointed Vice President of the International Mediterranean Committee (CIM), explained the new intentions of this body, which include changes in the measurement system and the recovery of an international Mediterranean circuit, for which the Spanish clubs will be involved.
On the other hand, the Notice of Race for the 2022 edition of the Circuit was definitively approved. After the incorporation of the fifth race in Estartit, the participants will have the obligation to score in three of the races in order to qualify.
The RANC has confirmed that it will donate, as in previous years, the trophies to the winners which, on this occasion, will include an absolute winner. Finally, it was agreed that, in principle, the presentation of trophies will be held in Mahón on the occasion of the last regatta of the circuit, the Copa del Rey de Barcos de Epoca.
