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!

Paella cookery course

A large part of the Spanish culture exists in its gastronomy…. In a “finca” near  Barcelona you can learn the steps in how to prepare and cook the most famous dish in Spain: the paella!

The Paella Cookery Course is a light-hearted and fun contest where participants get to learn to make their own paella out in the open air: an interesting alternative to the common barbecue!

The group will be divided into 2 teams of 10 people who will each be equipped with everything they will need to cook the paella and each team will be identified by different coloured scarves.

The teams will start at the same time and will be guided by one chef who will explain the preparation methods of the Paella. The teams will also have a copy of the recipe that details the ingredients used and in which order to use them.

At the end of the course, the chef and director of catering will taste each paella to determine the winner. This will be judged on the cooking process of each team and most importantly the taste of Paella. The winning team will receive a bottle of champagne and an optional a reward.

The group will then be free to enjoy their home-made paellas for lunch which will be accompanied with a salad, followed by dessert. Drinks are also included.

This is a fun and “tasty” Team building activity in a rustic Restaurant outside Barcelona.
