A TEAM of five Javea sailors have reached the Virtua Regatta quarter-finals.
Unable to go to sea, Juanjo Royo, Laura Erades, Luis Aroca, Alejandro Sanchez and Julian Viciano – all from Javea’s Club Nautico – are doing the next best thing.
They are competing in one of the many online sailing competitions now popular in Spain with landlocked lockdown sailors.
Twenty-eight more yachtspeople from Javea’s Club Nautico are competing in another virtual regatta, the Regional eSailing Championships.
Organised by the Valencian Community Sailing Federation Julian Viciano is currently highest ranked, having come first in two of the heats and third in another.
