39th Trofeo Conde de Godo - Day Four - The Finale

The Real Club Náutico de Barcelona brings the 39th edition of the competition to an end. The regatta was more international than ever with an excellent organisation both on and off the water despite the lack of racing on the final day due to light wind conditions.

The TP52 class concluded its participation in the Trofeo Conde de Godó with a double draw on the penultimate day of racing. Ed Baird’s Quantum Racing (with Spaniard Juan Vila onboard calling tactics) climbed the leader board throughout the competition to claim the overall victory despite drawing with Alberto Roemmers’ Audi Azzurra who finally took second place. Niklas Zennstrom’s Ran rounded up the podium on third.

British team Tony Buckingham’s Ngoni helmed by Kevin Spronl is the winner of the 39th Trofeo Conde de Godó with four out of six victories in the class racing.

A lack of racing on the last day meant Torcida’s team was unable to battle it out with Castañer skipper of Luis Martin Cabiedes’ Noticia IV – who finally claimed second place. Agustín Zulueta’s Iberdrola Team with José María Torcida at the helm took the third spot, having been affected by their disqualification on Day One.

After the Measurement Committee’s disqualification of Antonio Guasch’s Vertigo 2 it was a surprise victory for Richard Alcina’s Lone II with Lluis Blanchar’s Comet in second and Salvador Vieta’s Executive Airlines in third.

There were to be no opportunities given to the rest of the fleet by Jose María Van der Ploeg’s Nilfisk in the J-80 class. Winning all of their races (six out of six) Olympic medallist José María Van der Ploeg’s Nilfisk ruthlessly stated their claim to the J-80 title, followed at some distance behind them by Lluis Corbella’s Mikaku in second and Frances Roig’s Flash Back Salou in third place.
