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”.
Like other years, some colleagues made a trip from Vigo to the Verdugo river. Three of our ships, Taiña, Chanquete and Trebello, passed under the Arcade and Pontesampaio bridges and sailed upriver. Aided by the tide, they reached the river beach of Comboa, in Soutomaior (Pontevedra). A fast and beautiful trip, helped by a strong south wind and a calm and pleasant ascent along this green and leafy river.
Next Saturday, the 18th, will take place on the pontoon of the San Gregorio Nautical Association, Vigo (Galiza-Spain), the launching of our mother dorn UXIA. After almost five years of work the dorna was totally new.
All those who have an interest in our marine culture are invited to the event.
