Joost Depoorter (on the left) and Jaume Borrás, both from Club Vela Sant Antoni, have dominated the first day of the Trofeu Tamariu 2022, both in the first and second category, respectively.

(14-5-2022). Joost Depoorter has started the Trofeu Tamariu 2022 by winning the first round of the award with some ease. The provisional leader of second is Jaume Borrás. Both skippers are from Club Vela Sant Antoni.

Joost Depoorter has made a good start in the Trofeu Tamariu. In the 2018 edition, on the first day he registered a third and in the following year (2019), he took second place also on the first day. Today, Depoorter has improved those records and has started with a fairly comfortable victory, despite the constant stalking of the 2022 Spanish champion, Peco Mulet.

The sailboat from Sant Antoni de Calonge, Joost Depoorter, threads, with today’s victory with his ‘Nambauan’, the possibility of inscribing his name for the first time in the elite list of winners of the Trofeu Tamariu.


Today’s race was a nondescript start due to the barely 5 knots that garbi was blowing and that, during the course of the task, would rise to about 8 knots.

As the usual ‘canons’ dictate with that wind and from that direction, the board has been, in the three beats of the Olympic route established by the committee, by land or, rather, “by rocks”, that is, go to lick the high stone walls that limit the right side of the regatta field.

Depoorter took the lead and was the first to pass the mark on the first beat. Behind him have passed Peco Mulet, second; Quim Esteba, third; and Jordi Sabater, fourth… By the way, it must be considered that both Anna Pujol and Nina Esteba were sailing ‘incognito’ today, as their progress has not been reflected in the online broadcast of the Estela app.


The whole test has been dominated by Depoorter, Mulet and Quim Esteba who have led the fleet with authority and, despite their attempts to improve their respective position, their predecessor has not given his arm to twist and they have had no options to improve the place conquered.

All in all, today’s test has had three cracks in the ‘poker’ victorious from the last Spanish championship played in Formentera last April, which makes the victory of the sailboat, Joost Depoorter, even more relevant. As has been pointed out, Peco Mulet is the current absolute champion of Spain 2022; Quim Esteba, the 2022 Spanish Veteran Champion; and Julián Vinué, from the Vlub Nautic Sitges and fourth classified in today’s heat, won the bronze medal in the state title of this 2022.


In the second category, the winner today was Jaume Borrás, a skater from Club Vela Sant Antoni, who has already accumulated victories in this category in up to two editions (2014 and 2017).

Borrás has entered the seventeenth of the general. After him, in that second category, his teammates, Carles Castells and Daniel Juscafresa, have qualified, who have entered eighteenth and nineteenth, respectively.


Of the 42 registered in this year’s edition of the trophy, three are women. The fifth place of the veteran Anna Pujol, from the Club Natacio Barcelona, ​​is very remarkable, as well as the sixth position today of Nina Esteba, from the Club Nautic Tamariu, who shows that, gradually, she is recovering her form after several months of dry dock to Cause of severe cruciate ligament injury.

The second sleeve is scheduled for tomorrow. Today’s results show that this year’s edition is very close due to the high level of the participants.
