Last Saturday, September 18, we launched the open stern boat “Mini” and the Ribadeo boat “Folguiño”.
The event took place in the docks of the San Gregorio Nautical Association, with whom we shared this event.
In this beautiful ceremony we had the assistance of Mrs. Elena Espinosa Mangana, Councilor for Economy and Security of the Vigo City Council, and Mr. Jesus Vázquez Almuiña, president of the Port of Vigo, who honored us with her presence.
In addition, we want to highlight the pleasant gesture of Mrs. Elena Espinosa when she acted as godmother in the baptism of the boat “Mini”.
This year, and with the problems and cons that we continue to suffer from the Covid pandemic, we launched 10 boats; 2 of them recently restored: the MINI open stern boat and the boat of Ribadeo FOLGUINHO.
We hope to enjoy these boats more than last year.
Good health to all.
Very few entities or people are going through these times in the same way as previous years. The Covid virus, which is wreaking havoc around the world only comparable to those produced by the great wars, forces us to change our habits with others, so this summer the navigations were different.
The precautions made impossible the collaborations that we did every summer, going sailing with users or students of [COGAMI] (http://www.cogami.gal/) and [ARELA] (https://www.arela.org/) ; Nor has it been possible to collaborate with the Rías Baixas Sport Fishing Association and the San Gregorio Nautical Group in organizing the children’s fishing contest in recent years, filling the pontoon with children.
It can be said that this summer we sailed when and how it was possible, with the appropriate security measures to, in this way, provide our boats with the seawater ration that is necessary to give them to be “alive”.
We hope that this nightmare that we are all living ends as soon as possible and thus return to normality.
Health to everyone.
