It’s sailing trials time in Santander. With one year to go before the ISAF World Sailing Championships, this year’s Ciudad de Santander Trophy is more important than ever before. We asked Santander resident & writer Pamela Cahill to take her notebook and camera down to the bay. Take it away Pamela!
One of the powerful draws to visiting the Northern coast of Spain are the Cantabria cave paintings. Being based here in Cantabria, they are literally on our doorstep and we love visiting them and include them in our Northern Spain itineraries. Everybody who visits is moved by the experience. And yes – almost everybody agrees that the paintings constitute the oldest art in Europe.
Santander, as you may have heard, is the location for the 2014 International Sailing Federation ( ISAF ) Sailing World Championships. We are living and breathing the changes taking place in our home city in preparation for this wonderful sailing event. It’s an opportunity for lovers of sailing to witness a great championship – and if you’ve never been to Santander, September 2014 would be a great time to visit!
