Spanish term or phrase: CAMPEONES DE ESPAÑA DE CRUCEROS
In this sailing article I am just coming to the end of, there are numerous references to Regatta Categories and Crucero categories. Any of you sailing types out there know what we call the latter category in English?

I promise this is the last question I will ask about Navigational issues for a while :-)

Explanation:
Races are generally either short Regattas (lakes, harbors, etc.) or Long Distance or Offshore Races (Cruceros). Hope this helps. For more information on Sailing, Racing, and related terminology, see The Sailing Index at the site below:

Thanks... Isn't it funny how the obvious can often escape you. Even as a landlubber I had heard of the term ofshore racing. It just didn't come out when I needed it!

WIND SAILS


Explanation:
THESE ARE WIND SAILS WITHOUT ANY MOTOR OR ENGINE. THEY SYMBOLIZE THE OLD CRUCEROS BECAUSE THE WIND SAILS ACRRIED A CROSS ON THEM FOR DIVINE PROTECTION
