Almost 500 sailors will take part in the 45th Conde de Godó Trophy
In a month the first races of the 45th edition of the Conde de Godó Trophy will take place. Organized since 1974 by the Real Club Náutico de Barcelona, it is one of the most prestigious sailing competitions in Spain and will congregate more than 50 boats and almost 500 sailors this year in the waters of Barcelona.
The 45th Conde de Godó Trophy, which will take place from May 24 to 27, calls for the ORC cruisers and J70 and J80 one design classes. The registration period has just been opened and will continue until May 19, but the first units have already formalized the registration, such as the Adrián Hoteles from Canary Islands and the Vell Marí V from Mallorca, between local boats and some international ones, from Belgium and Russia.
The great Barcelona regatta has scheduled three days of races, from Friday 25 to Sunday 27, while Thursday 24 is reserved for registration of participants and crews weight control.
This year the prestigious Godó will have a second act, to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the trophy. Thus, the Real Club Náutico de Barcelona organizes the 45th Anniversary Special Godó Trophy, a new regatta that will join the Catalan capital with Saint-Tropez. The start will be on June 7, with 230 nautical miles (426 kilometers) ahead, and will led the fleet to the famous Rolex Giraglia, which takes place in Saint-Tropez from June 10 to 12, under the organization of the Italian Yacht Club.
