The mayor of Torrevieja has thanked Marina Internacional for this heartfelt gesture of honoring Gil Rebollo with the name of this trophy, assuring that everything is little for what he deserves for his political and personal career. Likewise, Eduardo Dolón has highlighted the route of the regatta, which will pass through the waters of La Mata, the district of which Gil Rebollo was a native.
On Saturday, July 17, at 9:00 a.m., the registration of the more than 30 participating vessels will be registered. At 10:00 hours the skippers' meeting will take place, and at 11:30 hours the regatta will start. Before the start, José Eduardo Gil Rebollo will be honored by sounding the horns of the participating sailboats and other boats that will come to the start of the race for a minute.
The distance of the regatta will be 16.5 miles and the route will be along the Torrevieja coastline, from the waters of Punta Prima to La Mata.
It is expected that the test will end at around 4:30 PM / 5:00 PM and at 8:30 PM the trophies will be handed out at Mesón El Huertano.
