NAUTICA WATCHES Catalonian J/80 Champion

J/80 Spain Nautica Watches (Badalona, Spain)- José Maria Van der Ploeg (a Spanish Olympic Gold Medallist and J/80 World Champion) and his crew of NAUTICA WATCHES, reconquer the title of Champions of the Catalonia J/80 class after winning 4 of the 6 races held in the waters off Badalona. Second place overall was BRIBON MOVISTAR skippered by Marc Bertrand Antonio (another J/80 World Champion), with the NACEX Team completing the podium.

In this edition of the regatta, organized by the Sailing Club Badalona, a new category called "SPORT" was introduced.  The basic idea is to create a formula to promote the kind of sailing that allows lower-level amateur teams to approach the world of high competition and compete together with the world’s elite sailors that are leading the Spanish J/80 fleet.   For more Spanish J/80 fleet sailing information
