The king emeritus sailed this Saturday on the "Bribon 500" boat for the first time since his return to Spain this weekend, waiting for the InterRías Travel Trophy to resume, a regatta in which this boat participates in the 6M category , and which has been suspended due to lack of wind.
Juan Carlos arrived at the Real Club Náutico de Sanxenxo (Pontevedra) at 10:50 this morning in the car driven by his friend, the businessman Pedro Campos, and, once there, he boarded the sailboat, with which he has made a brief trajectory through the waters near the port.
Although yesterday he followed the competition from the auxiliary vessel "Elena", today he did sail for some time with the main boat, from which he greeted the press on his return to port.
There he received the applause and cheers of several dozen people, at the same time that just a few meters away a rally was taking place in protest at his presence in the town of Pontevedra and at the treatment given to him by the municipal authorities under the motto "Galiza non ten rei" (Galicia has no king).
The king emeritus was even photographed kissing a dog aboard the "Bribon 500", owned by some of his supporters who were present today in Sanxenxo.
