Not a Regular Watering Hole
Jimbo Cannon, sewer man for Quantum Racing, checks the waterfront in the
old Spanish Navy port of Cartagena before racing starts at the fifth regatta
of the Audi MedCup.
here we are in far off Cartagena, Spain, roughly halfway between Barcelona
and Gibraltar for the fifth event of the Audi MedCup circuit. The historians
out there amongst you will know that this old port on the southeast side
of the Iberian Peninsula was founded in 227 BC by the Carthaginian general
Hasdrubal. Since the arrival of the Spanish Bourbons in the 18th Century,
it has been the headquarters for the Spanish Navy in the Mediterranean.
