A successful conclusion to the Dahm rally in Marina Ibiza

The 24th Club Yachting Life Rally, an event which brought together in Ibiza 14 sailing boats of large size and a very high standard, finished today with the return to port of the participating fleet, excited and satisfied after fleet sailing in calm waters to Cala Sol d’en Serra. After enjoying lunch at the Amante Beach Club, owners, captains and their crews returned to Marina Ibiza to get ready for their homeward voyage.

The Club Yachting Life Rally is rounding off its 24th year following three days of intensive sailing that began with a race which took the sailboats to the Cabrera coast. It was a rainy day, with the race being won by the Agarimo IV (Spanish flag) in the ketch class and the Toro del Mar (Swiss flag) in the sloop class. It culminated in an enjoyable dinner at which the crew members were able to relax following the voyage in the heavy rain. At the dinner the special Marina Ibiza prize was presented. It went to the crew of the Icarus for the bravery they showed by struggling against difficulties such as the tearing of a sail during the race. The second day was marked by the fine weather, which enabled the spectacular boats to enjoy the beauty of the islet of Es Vedrá and to anchor opposite Cala d´Hort.

The participating fleet praised Marina Ibiza´s comfortable facilities and its team´s hospitality, and they hope to hold the 25th Club Yachting Life Rally at the marina: “I doubt that after enjoying Marina Ibiza´s hospitality and the beauty of this coastline, we shall find a better place to hold our next rally, when we shall be celebrating its 25th anniversary, but our commitment is to change the location each year”, emphasized Dahm International´s president, Mr. Herbert Dahm. “Nevertheless, we´re going away with the promise of coming back in the very near future, since owners´ and crew members´ satisfaction with their time spent in Ibiza will be quite difficult to top”. With these parting words, Mr. Herbert Dahm bade farewell to the whole of the Marina Ibiza team and particularly its manager Daniel Marí, with a firm promise to come back very soon.
