Rocna Anchors Awarded to the Winners of the 2016 Ruta de la Sal Offshore Sailboat Race!
The Ruta de la Sal (Salt Route) regatta is held in Spain during Easter Week and is the most popular sea navigation regatta held in the Mediterranean. It is a challenging event because of the long distances involved and the often difficult weather conditions, which only seems to add to its appeal and provides extra motivation to tackle this seagoing adventure.
There are two routes to the finish line in San Antonio, Ibiza; the northern route starts in Barcelona, while the eastern route starts in Denia. In the most recent race, over 2,500 sailors and 300 boats took part.
This year, the winner of the Northern route it is a Yacht name Caro, a model Botin 65'. The winner of the Southern route is yacht name Plis Play, a Swam 80. Both won a Rocna Anchor upon finishing first, A Rocna 15 and Rocna 25, respectively.
Origin Marine, the Rocna Master Distributor for Spain, sponsors this race on behalf of Rocna Anchors. Origin Marine setup a booth at the start and finish providing information on Rocna, and also providing Rocna anchors to winners in various categories.
