Solintal Sailing Team leading the J80 Class
In addition to the multiple football and rhythmic gymnastics teams that the company sponsors, Solintal has had a Solintal Sailing Team for several months. The team competes in races and has consistently achieved excellent results in the championships it has competed in.
As part of its sports-focused social work, Madrid-based company Solintal, known around the world for the buckets it designs and manufactures, as well as its repair kits, water bowsers for mine irrigation, with capacities ranging from 20,000 to 180,000 litres, dump truck hoppers for all truck models and materials, arms and rockers for all kinds of large diggers, has once again won two of the most prestigious trophies in the nautical sector in the J80 sailboat category.
In addition to the multiple football and rhythmic gymnastics teams that the company sponsors, Solintal has had a Solintal Sailing Team for several months. The team competes in races and has consistently achieved excellent results in the championships it has competed in. One of the most notable was the boat race in Getxo in mid-July, part of the J80 class world Championship, Corinthians category (non-professional), where Solintal won first place, propelling them up to sixth in the overall world championship. This is an excellent result, even more so considering that 87 boats and almost 450 crew members took part in the Getxo race.
But that’s not all. The 38th edition of the 2019 Mapfre Copa del Rey took place in the first week of august at Palma Bay. This is a classic boat rate with 1500 participants on 132 boats, representing 26 countries. Even his majesty, King Philip VI, participated in the Swan 50 class.
At that race, the Solintal Sailing Team, skippered by Ignacio Camino, Armando Gutierrez as pitman and Gonzalo Iturbe as bowman, once again triumphed in the J80 class. This time the team reached third place, which would have been higher if not for the new (and unfair) classification system, where only the last race days are considered instead of the performance during the whole week.
With their Solintal J80 boat, Solintal and the Solintal Sailing Team have entered the nautical sector and achieved excellent results. The crew’s constancy, hard work, perseverance and know-how, together with the excellent performance of their boat, will ensure that the Solintal Sailing Team will continue to be successful around the world.
