Today at 1pm, 37 sailboats set sail to Galapagos from the coast of Ecuador. El Matador of course is rocking their awesome jackets designed by the little hibou. As you can see from the picture, no photoshop effect could save it from the gloomy look because it was so overcast that you could barely see. I’m happy to announce that my dad’s crew won third place on the first regatta called “Barlovento – Sotavento” which means with the wind and against the wind, which as described by the title they went straight and came back on the side of the coast. The main event takes place today which is a regatta all the way to galapagos (570 nautical miles, apron 68 hours), and then when they get there, there are two more regattas from one island to the other. Secretly I’m just waiting for this to be over so my dad can teach me how to “drive/navigate” the boat (sorry I don’t know what the correct word would be), I’ve always wanted to learn. Here are some more pictures taken by my mom because, as I said I couldn’t go.
Watching the regatta at the “Fragata Guayas”, the navy school boat.
At the inauguration party. I gotta say, I love how the uniforms turned out, even though they have the sort of “popped collar” look.
Receiving the third place price, and of course the captain (daddy) is wearing a suit instead of my fabulous jacket but well, he has to be formal.
