The Barcelona School of Nautical Studies, together with Ausmar, organises today the maritime safety exercise “Surviving 24 hours in a liferaft”. In order to show the students all practical details about the survival in dire conditions, the exercise will simulate a sinking in which 10 people will be abandoned, without food nor beverage, in a Duarry liferaft for 24 hours.
The XXIst Edition of La Ruta de la Tramuntana ended last Saturday, 5th July, with a clear winner: Alberto Fucale’s DONT ASK, First 50. The night raid, which gave the starting signal a day before in the Nautical Club El Balís, was riddled with a series of difficulties that forced some participants to give up before reaching the finishing line. Nevertheless, the entrance of SW the next morning, allowed the rest of the boats to finish their tour and complete therefore the regatta in the Nautical Club L’Escala.
Maribel Cadenas’ MAXIMO of CN Masnou and Enrique Towse’s VERANO DEL DESIERTO, Sun Fast 40 of CN Arenys de Mar achieved the second and third position in the regatta.
The Nautical Club El Balís will witness today the departure of the boats participating in the XXIst Ruta de la Tramuntana, the regatta that goes across 58 nautical miles in la Costa Brava and the one that gathers the best sailors in Catalonia. After the success in La Regata Bahía de Pollença, held the 6th, 7th and 9th June, Ausmar will collaborate again as the event’s official sponsor and will therefore look after every participant in the regatta.
