In its seventh edition, the VIII ILCA Open&Master Galicia - O Castro British International School - II Juan Pazó Trophy has established itself as one of the most important events of the Galician sailing season, with the participation of more than a hundred units from all corners of Galicia, including the neighbouring country of Portugal.

The prize-giving ceremony was held in the Noble Hall of the Liceo Marítimo de Bouzas, with its president, Miguel Pereira, acting as host of the event, which was attended by Berta Martín and Montse Pérez, representing O Castro British International School; and Carmela Pazó, daughter of the great sailor to whom the trophy is dedicated.

Second place went to Pablo Marquina Crespo, from the Monte Real Club de Yates de Bayona, with 12 points, the result of his 3-4-21-2-3 partials. And the third position, in this youth category, went to Miguel Rodríguez Tábara, from the Club Marítimo de Canido, with 13 points, his individual results being 2-6-3-4-4.

Sponsorship programme

O Castro British International School thus consolidates its sponsorship programme in Vigo and its metropolitan area. In addition to the support for sailing, which is materialised through this annual collaboration with the Liceo Marítimo de Bouzas, O Castro also supports golf, tennis, paddle tennis and horse riding, among others. "We believe that the practice and competition of sport really completes the integral development of young people, exposing them to unique experiences and promoting key skills that will accompany them throughout their lives," explains the director of the British school located in Mos (Pontevedra), Mr. Chris Long.
