The main pier of the Logistics Naval Base No.1 ARC “Bolívar” was dressed in white to start a military ceremony with the participation of the crews before the eyes of the public who have witnessed the events of the Sail. Immediately afterward, a military parade was held that toured the streets of the walled city, in which discipline and mysticism were demonstrated, representing with honor the flag of each country in the stone corralito.

Likewise, the love for the sea and sails united the Cartagena sailing association, with the crews of the ships that participate in the most important sailing festival in Latin America, in a regatta at the city’s Fishing Club.

The sailing competition, which takes place traditionally every Saturday, this time was moved to this Sunday to integrate Latin American sailors with the crews of 13 sailboats, including four from the “Almirante Padilla” Naval School of Cadets.

The opening ceremony of this regatta was presided over by Rear Admiral Javier Jaimes Pinilla, director of the “Almirante Padilla” Naval School of Cadets, who thanked them for participating in the nautical event and added that “the Sail is not only from the navy, it is of the city of Cartagena.

For two hours, the sailboats sailed a stipulated circuit in the Inner Bay of Cartagena, grouped into three categories as follows: category “less than one”; “one and more cruise” category, and “one and more regatta” category.

A true festival of the sea, of integration and camaraderie, which adorned the bay of Cartagena with its colorful sails, while the foreign sailboats and the ARC ship “Gloria” are docked at the dock of the Naval Base ARC “Bolívar” receiving the visit of locals and tourists.
