The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has started drafting its Strategic Plan which will address the future of the five ports it manages (Palma, Alcudia, Mahon, Ibiza and la Savina).
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) will reveal the current situation and foreseeable future of the sailing clubs located at the ports of general interest on the islands by organising a conference open to the public.
The event, under the slogan "The future of sailing clubs in the Balearic Islands. The continuity of concessions at Ports of General Interest", will welcome speakers who will assess the legal framework under which social sailing falls within the state port model and present proposals for improvements to the El Molinar facilities at the Port of Palma.
For the president of the APB, Joan Gual de Torrella, public access to social sailing must be essential in a community that is so closely linked to the sea such as the Balearic Islands. In this regard, the president of the APB believes that "the clubs play a key role in the maritime sector, which is an important driver in the generation of wealth. And as a reward for this social endeavour is the reason for which its continuity at our ports is justified", says Gual.
On 1 February at 19:30 in the Palau de Congressos de Palma, Joan Gual de Torrella will be joined by the head of the Legal Department of State Ports, José Antonio Morillo-Velarde del Peso, who will discuss the current legal framework of the term extensions of sailing clubs in Spain. In addition, consultant Gabriel Sandoval Sarrias will share his vision of how the new management model of marinas facilitates the integration between ports and cities.
Representing the APB, its head of Port Operation, Armando Parada González, will go over the current situation and immediate future of sailing clubs operating in the public port domain of the Balearic Islands. Lastly, the head of infrastructure, Antonio Ginard López, will unveil the future port of El Molinar, which combines improvements in functionality with greater port-city integration.
