La Concha Fishing Boat Regatta

An exciting, traditional exciting competition.

'Traineras' are rowing boats characteristically used in the Cantabrian Sea. They used to be used for fishing in the open sea. Little by little, racing in this kind of boat became popular and today it is one of the traditional sports with the largest following in northern Spain. The La Concha Regatta has been held since 1879 on the first two Sundays in September and the city can't wait for it to come around. All areas surrounding the beach, from Mount Urgull to Igeldo, the pier or the island, fill with fans cheering on their team. Join the spectators and experience the excitement first-hand. After the competition, the action moves to the tapas bars in the centre. Follow the trail and you will see a special, fun atmosphere.
