Bayonne, July 13, 2014.- Created in 1976 by the Monte Real Club de Yates de Bayona and disputed without interruption since then, the Conde de Gondomar Trophy celebrates its fortieth birthday this year with three major novelties. The sports program of the regatta is reduced from four to three days of competition, a big party will be held to commemorate its fortieth anniversary, and the registration of participants will be, for the first time in the history of the trophy, completely free.

Sponsored by SabadellGallego and Storax, the 2015 Conde de Gondomar Trophy will be held on July 24, 25 and 26. The first day features one of the most attractive events on the Spanish nautical scene, the ascent to Carrumeiro Chico from Baiona, a challenge for the most experienced sailors, who will have to complete almost 100 miles of travel to what is known as the Greek Cemetery . It is a test that is also the Spanish Storax Height Championship.

After this first stage, reserved for the largest boats, the smaller boats will take to the water. They will do it on Saturday, July 25, the Santiago Apóstol holiday, the second day of competition. For that day, a crossing regatta of about 30 miles around the archipelagos of the Cíes and Ons Islands is scheduled, and at the end of it, a great party at the Monte Real facilities, on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of the regatta.

The Conde de Gondomar Trophy – SabadellGallego Grand Prix will end on Sunday 26 in the Bay of Baiona with two windward-leeward races in which all sailboats will participate starting at noon. The final point of the competition will be the awards ceremony for the winners, which will be held at six in the afternoon at the Monte Real Club de Yates facilities.
