SAILING IN THE 5 clubs regatta

Each series has a race start from the Club Náuticos of Moraira, Altea, Campomanes, Villajoyosa and the Real Club Náutico de Calpe, usually five races per series.

Races are split into a Spring series (January to April) and an Autumn series (September to December). All yachts taking part must be minimum length of 9 metres and require a rating certificate. CBYA members’ yachts ratings are sponsored by the Association. To ensure interest in the races, three categories have been created – ORC-A, ORC-B, and ORC – C. These depend on the individual rating of each yacht, which is used for the handicapping system.


The Club Náuticos also run other annual regattas and races.

The Real Club Náutico Calpe hosts the Penyal D’Ifach Calpe – Formentera race – a three day event.
