Palma couple crowned Spanish champions

ACCESS 303: Boats are specially adapted.

SAILORS Angel Vega and Carmen Garcia have become national winners of the Access 303 Double class in the Spanish championships, held between July 17 and 19 at Cambril’s Royal Nautical Club.
The Double 303 Access class features boats which are specially adapted for disabled sailors and the pair are members of the Handisport Foundation team at Palma’s Royal Nautical Club. The foundation aims to integrate disabled participants into sport through making various sporting activities more accessible.
As well as winning Gold in the Doubles class, Angel also took the Silver medal in the individual category. Another pair from the Palma team, Maxi Dominguez and Ramon Gutierrez, just missed out on a medal by one point, coming fourth in the competition. The individual championship was won by Toni Ferra from the Port d’Andatrx Sailing Club.
