Vilanova Grand Marina – Barcelona, the first marina in the Mediterranean specialising in superyachts, sponsored the ninth edition of the Captains Dinner and Awards, promoted by Fraser Yacht, celebrated last 24th September, at the Monaco Yacht Club.
This event is an annual meeting for captains and crews of prestigious yachts around the world and, for the first time, with the participation of Vilanova Grand Marina-Barcelona as a new sponsor in this edition.
At the beginning of the event the marina organised a tasting of Spanish delicacies, where the Spanish Jabugo ham focused all attentions. The ham was served with Spanish wine and other snacks.
