Each day they arrive at the port, like seabirds. It is summer and now is when you see the most sailboats on the horizon. Sailors have chosen the Mediterranean, to best enjoy their trip. They know that, at the bow of their boats, they have a wealth of man’s history and culture, as well as places, islands and bays that are still full of mystery and promise.
The extraordinary growth and recognition that the Yacht Port Cartagena has enjoyed since its inception may surprise anyone who has not yet visited, or is unaware of the characteristics and distinguishing features that help make the marina a unique port for medium and large yachts, not only in the Mediterranean.
By the 28th June, the boat Leandros will have arrived in Villagarcía de Arosa, having completed its sea leg of the Jacobean Route, another name for what is the sea journey for the Road to Santiago. Thereupon, the crew will only have to walk about 50 kilometres to the city of Santiago de Compostela, a popular destination for pilgrims from around the world.
Summer is here and with it, the return of Yacht racing at the Cartagena Marina. The truth is that since the Marina was built, many are the organizers who have chosen it as a point of arrival, departure or berth. Amongst these is what is considered to be the world’s largest qualifying race: the Audi Med Cup.
