This weekend will see the traditional Costa Tropical Summer Regatta with 150 yachtsmen (and women; ‘yachtsperson’ doesn’t exist) competing in six categories.
Saturday, the Regatta will ply between Motril and Calahonda whilst on Sunday the route will be Herradura Bay (leaving 11.00h), passing Puerta del Mar in Almuñécar, continuing on to Salobreña (14.00h) and finally arriving off Playa de Poniente in Motril (15.00h).
The categories are: Crucero, Snipe, Clase Finn, Clase Láser 4.17 and Clase Optimist. We imagine that “Optimist” has more to do with “optimum” rather than “unfettered hope.”
Anyway, the event, organized by the Real Club Náutico de Motril, should be a good sight for beach users along the coast over the weekend and fun for those taking part.
