Juan Carlos Ameneiro’s Alboroto won this Saturday the J80 Autumn League that had been taking place since last October in Bayonne Bay under the organization of the Monte Real Club de Yates.
He did it, moreover, forcefully, achieving two victories in the two tests held and being, once again, the best of the stage, something he had already achieved in four of the five days that included the one-design group, having only escaped the triumph of the third phase at the hands of Solventis Ribadeo.
The team that under the leadership of Ameneiro completes Javier Aguado, Javier Lago and Juan Lago, was undoubtedly the best in the championship. He ended up with partial scores of 1-1-1-8-4-2-2-1-1 and 21 points in the final standings.
The award was the perfect finishing touch to a spectacular season. El Alboroto began 2022 with the disappointment that the Winter League escaped them at the hands of Javier de la Gándara’s Okofen, but from second position, he made it very clear that this season he was going to wage war in the water. And so he did.
Until the World Cup, Ameneiro’s men will continue to face off against the large J80 fleet that has been revealed in this latest edition of the J80 Autumn League, one of the most competitive in recent years. After five days and ten events held, and after first place for Alboroto (21 points), the winners’ podium was completed by Solventis Ribadeo led by Bruno Gago, César Conde, Sebastián Hermida and Manuel Javier Álvarez (33 points); and Bica de Chisco Catalán, Laureano and Jaime Wizner and Jesús González-Llanos (48 points).
Fourth and fifth position went to Nano Yáñez’s Cansino (52 points) and Nicolás Ángel Álvarez’s Pezoas (77 points), the latter being the boat, together with Guillermo Blanco’s I3D Atlántico, in sixth position, the best Results were obtained from those who are not part of the Bayonne J80 fleet, since they sail under the pennants of the Club Marítimo de Redes and the Real Club Náutico de A Coruña respectively.
Among the teams that did not manage to sneak into the podium or Top 5 positions, the Marías of the Portuguese Manel Cunha deserves special recognition, whose late entry into the competition (he joined the league months after it started ), weighed him down to ninth position, despite having quasi-perfect partials of 1-1-1-1-2-2 in the tests he played.
