The Real Club Náutico de Valencia starts the countdown to one of its great events in 2021, such as the 29er World Cup. A regatta that will be held between August 23 and 31 and will do so under strict and special sanitary measures, given the number of registered sailors that reaches 207 representing 24 countries.

As an aperitif and prelude to that great event in the capital of Turia, the Valencian club has launched three days of competition, although some international sailors are already at the RCNV Regatta Base preparing the World Cup event, to click and learn about some of the three planned race courses, the windy conditions, meeting some of the rivals and finishing tuning their boats.

The Coach Regatta will be held from August 17 to 20, with three days of competition and 9 events scheduled. The first day is established as a registration of participants and verification of material, as well as the 27 registered boats.

An important test for RCN Valencia in the face of this 29er World Cup and that will offer a great show in the Valencian capital, as Pedro Quiroga, the Club's Sports Director, assures us. En un principio íbamos a albergar el Europeo, por circunstancias excepcionales tuvimos la oportunidad de cambiar la nomenclatura y pasar a Mundial. Una situación que nos obligó a replantear muchas cosas, pero el Club siempre ha tenido capacidad para llevar adelante grandes regatas internacionales y no ha sido un hándicap ese cambio. Lo que sí hace es incrementar el número de participantes y ello repercute de manera directa en ese gran espectáculo que vamos a vivir a finales de mes en el Golfo de Valencia. También nos obliga, dado el número de participantes, a replantear todas las medidas sanitarias, con un plan especial y que se completarán con la normativa vigente de los organismos públicos y las propias que tienen establecidas las federaciones”.

For Carlos de Beltrán, manager, the World Cup event It does nothing but endorse the good sports health of RCN Valencia and that now it is going through a good important moment as it faces the last step to be able to host one of the most important regattas of all those held worldwide, such as Americas Cup”, adding that the 29er world championship, is one more showcase to be able to make known, although it is well known by all, the organizational capacity of RCN Valencia, the race course and its magnificent wind conditions, as well as our Regatta Base that places the Club as one of the best sports stadiums.

El 29er es el barco juvenil del olímpico 49er y en España, tras un tiempo de “descanso” ha vuelto con fuerza, siendo el RCN Valencia uno de los impulsores en esa importante recuperación de la clase. Ello, unido a la importante flota del RCN de Gran Canaria, que desde el principio ha sabido mantener a un nivel excepcional, las nuevas incorporaciones de unidades procedentes de Baleares, principalmente desde el RCN de Palma, sitúan a nuestro país como un equipo potente y con mucho nivel y proyección.

Along these lines, it is worth highlighting some of the flagged sailors, not only from RCN Valencia, such as Quicorras Urios and Filippo Benetti or the current champions of Spain, Mateo and Simón Codoñer, but also at the national level such as Paula and Isabel Liseca from RCN de Gran Canaria ; Luis Miró and Manuel Martín, from RCN Palma or Sara and Isa Momplet, RCN Calpe to name some of those who will be at the 29er World Cup.
