Caldero y Vela Latina, The Perfect Union in the Mar Menor (07/10/2018)

Twelve boats of Latin sailing have hoisted their huge sails today to participate in the III Regatta of the Cauldron and last of the Circuit of Lutes of Vela Latina of the Mar Menor.

One morning dawned with hardly any breeze and a dozen Latin sail boats dropped anchor on the beach carrion waiting for the wind to make its presence, while seven cauldrons began to cook on the shore of the beach that would be tasted by the participants upon arrival.

It was 11:30 in the morning when the east wind started to blow and the participants ran to their boats to hoist their knife sails, some of them 15 meters high.

This is one of the originalities of this regatta, since it does not leave from the sea as in the rest, but the crew have to leave from the sand running to get into the sea and climb overboard to each boat.

The III Regatta of the Cauldron has created a great expectation among the passers-by who at that moment were walking the maritime promenade, for the spectacular nature of the boats and the test.

The alcazareño municipality was the birthplace of the first competitions of this type of boat in the early twentieth century, in which Latinos participated in '42 palmos', an all-wood and motorless boat, about 8 meters in length.

On this occasion the categories have been;

42 spans in which Francisco Moreno of the Islas Menor club has taken the first position, followed by El Sur de Cabo de Palos and 33 spans;

where the boats Virgen del carmen of the Isla del Barón, Joven Josefa de La Puntica and La Conchita de Santiago de la Ribera, have won the first three places.
