Las Galletas marina to host water-based spectacular
The Marina del Sur in Las Galletas, located in the municipality of Arona, will be the scene of a new edition of the Canary Islands Underwater Photo Championship.
The event will be held within the framework of the fair Fenáutica 2019 between June 7th and 9th. The 17th edition of the Guanche’s CUP regatta will take place that same weekend.
In this edition of the Canary Islands Underwater Photo Championship, 13 teams from Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and La Palma will take part. The first dives will take place on June 7th and 8th, while the projection of the works and the trophies will take place on Sunday, June 9th.
In the case of the Guanche’s Cup, it will again include in its programme the categories of cruising and sailing and the participation of more than 50 sailors. The delivery of prizes to the winning boats will coincide with the last day of Fenáutica, in the main stage of the event.
Another of the highlights of the Fenáutica programme will be the inauguration of the official stand of the Underwater Photo and Video World Championship, which will also be held in Marina del Sur from September 17th to 22nd and will bring together about 200 athletes from more than 20 countries.
To these sporting events must be added the already confirmed presence of Pedro Ripol in Fenáutica 2019, the first Spaniard to paddle an ocean, who will share his 2001 Atlantic experience.
Fenáutica 2019 has the support of the Economic Promotion and Tourism areas of the City Council of Arona, Tenerife Tourism, Tenerife Sports, Binter, Aequor Spa, Marina Rubicon and Puerto Mogán.
