I hope that Princes of Asturias will choose also other parts of Spain to take some rest, not only Palma de Mallorca. :rolleyes:

The Kings delay to a day their arrival to the island to eat with president Fox

Although its arrival was predicted for the next Tuesday 18 of July, finally, the Kings have had to delay to a day the beginning of its vacations to attend a lunch in the Zarzuela with the president of Mexico, Vicente Fox.
According to she has been able to know this newspaper, the agenda of activities of Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía has undergone some modifications in the last days due to unforeseen expenses. Thus, Their Majestys will offer a food to the Mexican president who will go with his wife, Marta Sahagún de Fox. To amuerzo it is predicted in addition that they attend Princes de Asturias after his official trip by China.
In spite of this delay, in Marivent already they have prepared all the unfolding of security. It is not necessary to forget that, as much the King as prince Felipe, has showed their desires to participate in the regata Breitling that place in Puerto Portals between the 19 will take and the 23 of July. In addition, father and son also will be to the front of the Loafer and the Aifos, respectively, in the Glass of the King of its 25 Candle that celebrates anniversary.

Really the vacations for the politicians in Spain are in August. The Royal Family moves their residence to Marivent in the middle of July to take part in the ditches, but from there they move to some official acts. The King receives in the first days all the authorities of the Balearic Islands and of Palma de Mallorca,and he receives to beginning and the ends of the month the Prime minister. The Prince already has had to retire more than once his vacations to travel to Latin America.

One question, is the Azur de Puig gonna participate at the Breitling Regatta?

Another question: is there a list for the King's Cup? does it have cathegories like Tornado or Dragon?

Thanks in advance:)

I have looked and it seems that still there is no list of participants in the Cup of the King, I imagine that for the next week.
https://www.copadelrey.com/inicio.asp?hl=es

" Azur de Puig " the ship of the Infanta is of a category different from the "Bribon" of the King, not it is Transpac, and because of it it does not take part in the Breitling.

For what says this article, it seems that finally the Prince of Asturias has had to take a decision and to leave his friends. Last year the Prince did not take part in the Cup of the King, on one hand to be with his pregnant wife ... but also because he had to choose between two ships, and it did not have to be agreeable. The Prince began to compete in ships of the Spanish Navy, the Sirius and the Aifos, but during a time the Navy stopped competing, and the Prince went away to the ship CAM, where he had very good friends. Last year the Navy returned to compete with a new Aifos, and the Prince met obliged to choose between the friendship and to enjoy the sport, and the obligation with the military. It seems that once again, even in vacations, the duty and the obligation prevails. Personally, it seems to me to be unjust, because the King is the Top Chief of the Army, and he competes with his friends and not in the ship of the Navy. :confused:

Thanks for this intereting details, dear Lula. We know that the Prince is very found of racing boat , but one question : can we imagine that "obligatories competition " may be quiet boring for him ? ( past to past, if you know what I mean ! )

Regata Breitling
I've just seen the name of the king in the list of the sailors ! In Aifos it's not Prince Felipe so I don't know if they'll go in Palma for the regata !
If they want fresh air they don't have to go in France : we have 38°C in Normandy, we are not very well with this warm !!!!!

The King and Queen are expected to arrive this evening in Palma, landing at 9:00 PM at Son Sant Joan, from where they will go to the Palace of Marivent, where they will spend their summer vacations.

As usual, during his stay in the island, Don Juan Carlos will combine his office activities with the practice of nautical sports.

That rarer hour, they come very late, not? Coming at this hour I do not believe that the Princes come at the same hour that they, it is a bit late for Leonor.

Maybe you are right Lula, but who knows, one of my relatives and his family traveled 10 hours by car, arriving around 10pm to their final destination, with their 7 months old baby. (yes..they stopped along the way many times). I know it is not the case of the princes as they wont go through this kind of inconvient trip, but it can be a good hour to avoid the press and also 9pm at that age is not that bad after all.

Lets see.

Lets see.

The Kings do an official arrival to Majorca, because Marivent passes to be their official residence in summer, there are authorities and press. So they cannot avoid them. Though with the heat of these days I am not surprised that they choose this hour.:cool:
If the Prince takes part in the ditch and having an act on Monday, I do not believe that they are late in coming. :D

Palm. (EFE) .-The Kings came at the last hour of this evening to the air base of Son Sant Joan, in Palm, to begin their habitual summer stay in Marivent's Palace, in the course of which Don Juan Carlos will reconcile his labors of office as Chief of State with the rest and the nautical sport.

Don Juan Carlos and Dona Sofía came in a plane of the Armed Forces, which landed on 21.00 hours in the air base proceeding from Madrid, where this midday the Kings offered a luncheon in the Palace of The Zarzuela to the president of Mexico, Vicente Fox, and to his wife, Marta.

Afoot of steps they gave the welcome to the Kings the chief of the autonomic Executive, Jaume Matas; the president of the Parlament inhabitant of the Balearic Islands, Pere Rotger; the delegate of the Government in the islands, Ramon Socías; the mayor of Palm, Catalina Cirer, and the chairwoman of the Consell of Majorca, Maria Antónia Munar.

The Kings, whom there was accompanying the chief of the House of the King, Alberto Aza, conversed with the authorities during a few minutes and later Don Juan Carlos and Dona Sofía left in a familiar car that the own monarch was leading.

As in the previous years, part of the Royal Family might take part in the Trophy Breitling, which it begins tomorrow and in the one that hopes that the Prince haggles, and in the Cup of the King, who will be disputed later and who is considered to be one of the most important ditches of the Mediterranean.

The King will continue during the summer with his activities of office in Marivent's Palace, where he will continue with his official agenda and, since it is traditional, there is foreseen that he does business in two occasions with the prime minister, Jose Luis Rodríguez Zapatero.
Don Juan Carlos will interrupt his stay in the island next Monday to travel to Morocco, where he will support a luncheon of character deprived with the King Mohamed VI.

This day, the Princes of Asturias will visit Sa Pobla's Majorcan locality to receive the Golden medal of the municipality, as confirmed sources of the Govern of the Balearic Islands.

EVA HERZIGOVA AND SPANISH ROYALS JET INTO MAJORCA
The island of Majorca received an influx of high-profile visitors this week as the Spanish royals touched down on Wednesday and Eva Herzigova took to the waves for some summer fun.
Queen Sofia and King Juan Carlos arrived in the Balearic hotspot for their annual holiday at the Marivent Palace – their summer residence just outside the capital Palma. Despite the heat, the royal pair kept up appearances in smart suits as they stepped off their plane. Both keen sailors, the royal pair may find themselves bumping into another familiar face, that of supermodel Eva, at Portals Nous where the jet-set moor their yachts.

They are vacations, so nothing is clear ever, there is no type of information, only it reports of the day of arrival of the Kings and of the official activities. The rest they are rumors. For example, on the Princess and Leonor, there is contradictory news, for one side that already they are there and for other one that they go this weekend.:confused:

The pictures of the Queen sailing are some of my favorite ones of the whole summer vacations, that's for sure! :) She just looks great!

Well, it's a little bit confusing about the presence of the other family members, I agree. I hope to see Letizia and Leonor during the weekend, too.
And let's hope they can go away for a couple of days having some rest.

And let's hope they can go away for a couple of days having some rest.

In several articles of press they mention that Letizia and Leonor will come the weekend.

To I was looking alike strangly, but already I have found an information (that I was not remembering) in another forum, that might explain it. The birthday of the grandfather and godfather of Letizia is this week, probably she and Leonor remain in Madrid for celebrate with the family of the Princess. Last year I remember that she went to visit him to house of her mother Paloma. Francisco Rocasolano is old, is almost 90 years old, to this age there is that celebrate it very well. Besides, on having been a summer probably Letizia's cousins are of vacations and could assemble 5 great-grandsons, 4 born ones in the last year.

The Infantas and their families will be coming, at the moment they pass these days in Lanzarote. Assurance that also with Alexia and her family.

So Princess Alexia and Carlos will also be joining them on this summer vacation?

crisiñaki 07-20-2006 01:27 PM

This pictures show how close the Kings are after all those years, they both love to sail and KJC doesn't have a problem with taking his wife sailing with him!
They both look so happy and relaxed at the sea!:)

And BTW: anyone knows where can I find info about the sailing teams? I want to know what does an "armador" or a "patrón" do but I haven't find anything online:o:o:o

Thanks in advance...

Thanks in advance...

The "patron" is the person who gives the orders inside the ship. The "armador", the person or the company that constructs the ship. For example, the King is the "patron" of the Bribón, who gives the orders in the ship in the competition, but the owner of the ship is Josep Cusí. In case of the Aifos, the ship in which the Prince competes the "armador" is the Spanish Navy.

The Queen takes the cane

A slightly habitual image and that repeated itself three years ago in the Nautical Club of Palm. Dona Sofía took yesterday during a few minutes the cane of the Bribon demonstrating her great interest for the sport of the wind. Don Juan Carlos wanted to be grateful this way for the unconditional support of his wife in the competition. With this nice instantaneous one it started yesterday the twelfth edition of the ditch Breitling in Port Portals. For the first time in the Majorcan summer, the Kings and the Prince of Asturias embarked in their sailboats to furrow the waters of the Mediterranean.

Some minutes of the ten were passing and average of the morning when Their Majesties were raising, not without any small skid, the Bribón. Before they had enjoyed a calm breakfast in the Flanigan, place where on night, after their arrival to the island, also they had dinner. After the regards with the crewmen, don Juan Carlos offered a warm embrace to his outfitter, Josep Cusí, with whom he conversed some minutes before departing course to the bay palmesana. Dona Sofía, who illuminated a white trousers to stripes, a blue shirt and a few enormous sunglasses, recognized before the presents the heat of the day. " It is hot truth? ", she was asking. " Though more or less like other years ", she added. The King added to the conversation assuring "contentments" that are for having begun already the vacations.

Next to them, the king Harald of Norway who from the Fram was following attentivly everything what was happening around it, foreign to the expectation that was provoking his presence and his notable physical improvement after the last problems of health that kept him removed from his official activities.
With the shot of exit that was giving beginning to the first test of the morning, the Queen changed the Bribón into the Somni, launch from where she was still attentive to develop of the ditch that finished, in its first day, with Mutual Of Madrid in the first position, followed by the Siemens and the Warpath. The fortune did not accompany in this occasion the King and don felipe that they had to conform to the eighth one and the nineteenth position, respectively, in the provisional classification.

The 'Aifos' from Portopí

It was necessary to wait until the evening to see the Prince of Asturias. His craft, the Aifos, did not divide from the base established in Port Portals but from Portopí's wharf, and only one saw him at his arrival after the first and hard day.

Don Felipe completely combined with shorts and vest in tones ocres that were showing his sensitive loss of kilos, greeted his father taking the cap from him in an enterteining grimace. The King returned the gesture before tackling course to Marivent.

Though there was waited the presence of dona Letizia and the small Leonor, it will not be up to today in the night when they come to the island. Don Felipe has gone forward to his family in the beginning of his vacations to take part in the competition of wind and next Monday, the 24th of July he will receive together with his wife Sa Pobla's Golden medal. Besides, the close one 27 and 28 will travel to Peru to be present at the Ceremony of Transmission of the Presidential Control Alan García.

For the next week the arrival is waited besides of other two daughters of don Juan Carlos and dona Sofía. The infanta Cristina accompanied by her husband, Iñaki Urdangarín and her four children, Juan Valentín, Pablo Nicolás, Miguel and Irene - who has just expired one year - and the infanta Elena together with don Jaime de Marichalar and her little Felipe Juan Froilán and Victoria Federica, will establish themselves also in Marivent's palace after passing a few days of rest in Lanzarote in company of their cousin, Alexia of Greece.

Not everything was happy and positive in the yesterday day. The world of the candle dawned with the sad news of the death of Margarita Picardo Bertrán, wife of the admiral Marcial Sanchez-Barcaiztegui Aznar, president of the National Commission of Ditches of the Navy and great friend of the Royal Family. To the funeral, which took place at seven o'clock in the afternoon in Sant Jaume's church of Palm, numerous friends came and regatistas that wanted to share the pain with the family.

The Queen and don Felipe, very joined always the family Barcáiztegui, also were present at the mass for the soul of his wife.

Not, normally in the arrival of the Princes there are no photos. In case of the Kings, they are because there is an official reception with authorities (in The Holy Week, for example, they are not).
Let's wait that prompt we see them, your calm one that photographers are very prepared, this photo is the principal summer mission.:p
