El 61º Gran Trofeo Valencia para la clase Snipe amplía su palmarés de campeones. Tras cerrarse este fin de semana la prestigiosa regata, organizada por el Real Club Náutico de Valencia, contando con 64 inscritos y en la que se han completado hoy tres pruebas, la jornada de sábado se quedó en blanco por las condiciones meteorológicas, con viento inestable al que se añadió un chubasco importante que obligó a la flota a regresar a tierra con el casillero en blanco, los flamantes campeones son Sergio Barrionuevo y Federico Gálvez (CN Los Nietos) en la general absoluta; Alejandro Pérez y Carlos Arozena (RCN Tenerife), en Juvenil; Ángel Carlos Ballesteros y Eugenia Vanny (RCN Motirl – RCN Valencia) en Master y Marta Peñarrubia y Bianca Tamani (RCN Madrid- RC Astur Regatas).

Today's day, with more benevolent wind conditions for the fleet, especially in intensity and staying in direction in the three tests, with 10-12 knots of intensity on an axis of 065º-070º, although yes with a wave that has been growing to 2 meters, has had the favorites as protagonists, without giving many options to their direct rivals, although with a lot of equality between the fleet and many changes in the first places.

The Murcian tandem of Los Nietos, Barrionuevo - Gálvez has been quite regular, although it started with a partial victory, then fell to seventh place, but fixing its classification with a worked second place. This has left them in that first place in the absolute genre with 10 points.

Another favorite crew to be on the podium has not failed. The local Agustín Zabalua and Belén Olivas (RCN Valencia) have taken the silver. Like the Murcian they have made good partials, especially in the 1st and 3rd rounds, with 3-4 partials, although showing somewhat less successful in the second in which they have not managed to overcome the 9th place on the finish line.

El podio absoluto se ha completado con el guion establecido. Los baleares Víctor Pérez y Juan Carlos Serrano (CN C’an Pastilla) han hecho buenos los pronósticos al colgarse el bronce. El tándem balear ha ido de menos a más en el campo de regata ‘Manel Casanova’, iniciando su participación con un discreto 8º puesto para pasar a un 6º y terminar con una merecida 3ª plaza, sumando así 17, a 1 del segundo y a 6 del primero.

The Tenerife Alejandro Pérez and Carlos Arozena take the Valencian trophy in the Youth class, thanks to the partial 9-4-5, adding a total of 18 points. The title in the Master category went to Ángel Carlos Ballesteros (RCN Motril) and Eugenia Vanny (RCN Valencia), standing out in their locker, as the best result, a 5th place. In women, the final victory has corresponded to the Valencian Marta Peñarrubia and Bianca Tamani.
