Perfect weekend in Cesantes. After two intense days of regatta, the TMKiteClub put an end to the Galician Kitesurf Championship this Sunday, a test organized by the club from Redondela with the collaboration of the Redondela City Council and by delegation of the Royal Galician Sailing Federation. In total, six tests completed which gave the winners to Justo Fernández in the Foil and Surf divisions, Antonio Fernández “Patxi” in the Male Twintip and María de Carmen Nieto in the Female Twintip.
Cesantes fulfilled again with the more than 30 registered riders. Although the report pointed out that the passage of the DANA could complicate things both on Saturday and Sunday, finally the thermal wind characteristic of the San Simón cove came on time to its appointment, allowing the Race Committee to complete three races per day for each of the categories with winds that were from 12 to 18 knots of intensity.
In the Foil class, Justo Fernández from the Windsurf Galicia club had no rival and once again claimed the title of Galician Champion with full victories in his box. Behind, the second position went to Mario Martínez from TMKiteClub and third was Andrés Douglas from the Windsurf Galicia club.
For his part, in the Surf class Justo Fernández repeated at the top of the podium, followed on this occasion by Francisco Costas from TMKiteClub and Roberto González from Papaventos Kite Club, second and third respectively.
In the Twintip men's division, with five victories out of six possible, local rider Antonio Fernández “Patxi” was crowned the new Galician Champion of the class. Behind him, he was followed in second place by the defending champion from last year, Iván Carballo from TMKiteClub from Baion, and third was Horacio Pequeño, also representing the club from Redondo.
The Female Twintip class was, without a doubt, the most disputed with an intense one-on-one between María López Muiña and María del Carmen Nieto -both from the TMKiteClub-, which was finally resolved in favor of Nieto becoming the new Galician Champion of the class ahead of López Muiña. The youngest of the fleet, Vera Vázquez, closed the podium in the third drawer.
Once the second day was over, the awards ceremony put the finishing touch to a weekend of ten in the waters of the Vigo estuary. The event was attended by the president of the organizing club, Tato González, and the president of the Royal Galician Sailing Federation, Manuel Villaverde, who was in charge of presenting the awards to the regional champions of the class.
