1st "Trainera" Race at the beach in Navarre
Whoever thought that Navarre needed a beach to be able to compete in beauty with our neighbours in Gipuzkoa is going to be happy!
Spend a splendid day at the beach with “traineras” (traditionally, sardine fishing boats) included.
For the first time in Navarre, you´ll have the opportunity to attend a real “trainera” regatta. This sport, which was invented by those men who fished for sardines in the Bay of Biscay (Cantabrian Sea) , starts its season in the Alloz Reservoir, next to the Aritzaleku camping site.
The exhibition race will count with the participation of male teams from Orio, Trintxerpe, Hondarribia, Sanpedro, Zarautz, La Donostiarra, Pasai Donibane and Zumaia. We should also note that there will be a female race in which four boats will participate, though they are still to be confirmed. The regatta will be held in two rounds with a racing area of 1,500m.
Now that it is almost summer and the heat is starting to be felt, it´s a great opportunity to spend a different type of day. Don´t miss this chance to enjoy a unique show in Navarre. Also, a great atmosphere will be assured. We expect the arrival of numerous fans of the crews participating, as well as other visitors and people who have never seen this type of event before. Don´t forget to bring your sunscreen, your towel and a sun lounger and spend a day at the beach. Just like being at the “Concha”, oye!!
