An open day on board a naval boat that docked in the city yesterday (Wednesday) for Hispanic Heritage Day 2022 attracted so many people that many had to be turned away, according to this Spanish report.

But rather than leave people disappointed at not being able to board the Formentor before 1.30 organisers arranged a second boarding after 4.30 pm.

The crew were welcomed to the resort by Benidorm Mayor Toni Pérez.

Accompanied by councillors including Public Safety councillor Lorenzo Martinez, Perez joined the Formentor’s commanding officer, First Lieutenant Sergio Duce and the central government’s Sub-delegate for Defence, Naval Captain Joaquin Vergara.

The ceremony concluded with a toast to the Spanish Navy’s highest-ranking officer, King Felipe VI.

The Formentor belongs to the Maritime Task Force Command based in Cartagena and provides backup for Spanish and international ships as well as Nato’s Naval Cooperation and Guidance for Shipping group.
