The annual CBYA Challenge took place at RCNC on Sunday 30 October. This is a special regatta where mixed teams of CBYA & RCNC TOM sailors compete in two teams named LUBINA and BACALAO.
The Challenge first took place in 2013 and was won by BACALAO in 2013, 2014 & 2015.
This year we had a special treat – brand new, virginal, gibs and spinnakers! read more →

After being postponed from the original planned date of Sunday 1st November due to the forecast for bad weather, the CBYA annual challenge to the Real Club Náutico de Calpe (RCNC), to compete for the CBYA TOMs’ Challenge Trophy, took place in Calpe on Sunday 15th November 2015, with seven (7) mixed RCNC-CBYA crews competing against each other in two teams, as in previous years, named LUBINA and BACALAO. The crews were mixed with both CBYA and RCNC sailors, to ensure that each crew was reasonably evenly matched. Four races were run over a short twice round, windward-leeward course. Since there are only six (6) TOMs at Calpe, and we had seven crews, team Lubina changed a crew after each race, whilst the Bacalao crews remained unchanged.
We would love to know what you think!
