Homenaje al almirante Marcial Sánchez - Barcáiztegui - Trofeo SM La Reina José Jordán / Trofeo SM La Reina
El Real Club Náutico de Valencia ha dedicado esta mañana un emotivo homenaje al almirante Marcial Sánchez-Barcáiztegui, socio de honor del club que fue delegado de Vela de la Armada hasta 2011 y presidente de la Comisión Naval de Regatas de Baleares, y que falleció en julio del pasado año. El Trofeo SM La Reina, la regata más importante del club, es una prueba dedicada a la Armada Española y que desde hace veintiséis ediciones lleva el nombre del almirante Marcial Sánchez-Barcáiztegui.

El acto ha contado con la presencia del Almirante General Jefe del Estado Mayor de la Armada, Jaime Muñoz-Delgado y Díaz del Río, el presidente del Real Club Náutico de Valencia, Manuel Pons y la hija del almirante Patricia Sánchez-Barcáiztegui, junto con otros miembros de la familia. También han asistido varios miembros de la Armada Española así como la tripulación del Aifos, embarcación de esta institución que participa en la regata y numerosos regatistas que han querido mostrar su cariño al almirante.

El presidente del Club y el Jefe del Estado Mayor de la Armada han descubierto una placa en el salón social del Real Club Náutico de Valencia, junto a las dedicadas a los regatistas más destacados de la institución, 'el sitio que más le apetecería' según ha indicado el presidente.

'Marcial ha sido posiblemente la persona que más hecho en favor de la vela, junto con la Armada Española, a la que rinde homenaje esta regata' ha señalado Manuel Pons, indicando que el programa de vela de la Armada ha sido 'un vivero de regatistas de primer orden' y que muchas de las medallas olímpicas españolas en este deporte han sido gracias a la labor que llevó a cabo el almirante 'con mucho empeño y pocos recursos'.

Por su parte, el almirante Muñoz-Delgado ha destacado que Sánchez-Barcáiztegui ha sido 'un ejemplo en el que se han fijado todos los regatistas, fuera y dentro de la Armada' cuyo empeño contribuyó a promocionar este deporte. 'Mantendremos la imagen del almirante siempre viva con nosotros', ha asegurado.

La hija del homenajeado, Patricia Sánchez-Barcáiztegui, se ha mostrado muy emocionada y ha comentado que 'la familia tiene claro cuánto le queríais, más muestras de cariño es imposible'.

While AC72 cats were fast, they difficult to control, so Oracle partnered with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way. If you watched videos of the AC72s racing in the 34th America’s Cup (2013), you’re familiar with the mind-boggling speeds that are possible when wingsail-powered catamarans switch from displacement sailing to foiling mode. While foiling is fast, there’s no disguising the platform’s inherent instability. Now, Oracle Team USA has teamed up with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way.
