Bet it all for Bigamist and Earlybird, when postponement of the start time allowed to sail just one single race in Barcelona race area. Both boats were tied in points, so who would finish in front of her competitor would enroll his name in the track record of the trophy, as well as being the first leader of the 2013 European Championship.
Blowing 10-14 knots South East wind began the eighth and final race of Trofeo Conde Godó team Earlybird steered this time by co owner Christian Nagel German (in the absence of Henrik Brandis, who steered the boat to her first win in her maiden event in PalmaVela) could control the Portuguese Pedro Mendoça Bigamist, skippered by Afonso Domingo to win the last race and the trophy.
Behind both leaders finished Solete steered by her Portuguese owner José Caldeira asisted by tactician Gonzalo Araujo, which managed to beat German Stefan Jentzsch Black Pearl, though the cumulative disadvantage allowed Black Pearl to held their third position in the final podium. The next appointment of the Soto 40 fleet will be the Ibiza Trophy, which will be held in the Pitiusas island from 3 to 6 July.
