Roman Amphitheatre Tarragona

Tarragona Mediterranean Games 2018

 

In a few days the Mediterranean Games will take place in Tarragona, a port city located on the Costa Daurada by the Mediterranean Sea, 1 hour & 21 minutes driving from Barcelona. In Tarragona you can admire the vaults of the Roman circus and the charming alleys of the historic quarter. The city has a heritage of historic monuments and locations from Roman, medieval and modern eras. Tarragona reveals the essence of the Mediterranean.

Between June 22 and July 1, there will be 26 countries from three continents (19 from Europe, five from Africa and two from Asia) whose common denominator is to be coastal of the Mediterranean Sea.

These Games will house 33 different disciplines and 16 venues will be set up, most of them in Tarragona, although some disciplines will also be played in Barcelona.

Tarragona awaits the arrival of 4,000 athletes. In addition there will be present a thousand judges and representatives, thousand journalists and 3,500 volunteers that will put the Catalan city at the center of the world sports map. This multi-sport competition, which is part of the Olympic movement, with the recognition of the International Olympic Committee, is still a Second Division of the Olympic Games.

The program is limited to 33 disciplines, among which are some as unique and local as the sport of balls (bowls and petanque), or others that are not recognized as Olympic games, like water skiing or golf. On the other hand, there is a lack of traditional sports such as synchronized swimming, trampoline jumps, pentathlon or field hockey.

Athletes also see these Games as a test of demanding preparation for their individual goals, beyond the possibility of achieving a medal for their record. This thesis acquires force after the decision of the International Committee to modify part of the sports program of Tarragona 2018 for the fear that tests are disputed with a few athletes. The suppression affects nine of the 237 scheduled sports such as men’s 1,500 meters, ball sports, 125-kg wrestling, -49 kg boxing, Olympic Skeet shooting, -62 kg weightlifting and lightweight double scull rowing.

The list of cancelled tests does not imply elimination of any sport of the sports calendar, in fact that did occur in the previous edition to Mersin 2013, where the women’s basketball and the equestrian team were removed.

Sailing and winery visit

 

This is a possible activity that you can choose to be included in your Incentive program.

A sea route with endless possibilities opens up before you! Sail to Masnou, leaving Barcelona’s incredible skyline behind, and discover the beaches at Maresme. Let us take you to the wineries, where a sommelier will accompany us on a journey into the vineyards, their wines and aromas. Finally, enjoy delicious Mediterranean gastronomy in an experience sure to delight all your senses.

We set out from Barcelona aboard a Golet, which is a Turkish wooden boat with two masts, formerly of pine, that were used to transport cargo and fishing along the southern coast of Turkey. Afterwards we will  sail to the port town of Masnou. During the journey, we’ll be able to enjoy the city’s skyline, which we gradually leave behind to discover the endless Maresme beaches.

Conde de Godó – Barcelona Sailing Trophy

Sa Cuina de N´AinaReal Club Náutico in Barcelona recently launched the 40th edition of the Conde de Godó Sailing Trophy. The action on the water was performed by the professional sailing classes, like the Wally, TP52s and Soto 40s. The battle was promised to be intense, and so it was; there were 65 boats in three different race courses, the best of international sailing together with more amateur units, fighting for the Conde de Godo Sailing Trophy.

Joaquím Barenys, Director of the 40th Conde de Godó Trophy praised the competition: “The Conde de Godó Trophy is in excellent health with an international fleet of both professionals and amateurs, and it has continued to build over the years. … The participation of some of the great legends of international sailing in the competition is the best birthday present that we could possibly have for the 40th edition of the Conde de Godó Trophy.

The Conde de Godó Sailing Trophy kicked off on the 22nd of May with excellent sailing conditions on the water in Barcelona. After the harsh conditions the fleet had on Friday, the races scheduled for Saturday had to wait longer than expected due to the light wind that was blowing in Barcelona during the morning.

The last day of the Conde de Godo Sailing Trophy was full of anxiety. The prevailing light wind indicated the worst but finally the fleet was able to race in appropriate conditions. The 40th Conde de Godo Sailing Trophy ended on 26th of May and got its winners: QUANTUM RACING (TP52), EARLY BIRD (Soto 40), ZHIK/NOVASAIL (J-80), OPEN SEASON (Wally), XSPAIN (ORC 2) FANYTAS (ORC 3) and RATS ON FIRE (ORC 1).

For those who want to feel this sensation from a little closer perspective, we can organize a sailing regatta for corporate groups. Contact us to and we’ll make you feel like one of the Conde do Godo Sailing Trophy participants even if just for a day!
