Plying the roads of salt

It all started in 1846 to rescue Barcelona from a shortage of salt that was becoming a threat to the city. A businessman had a brilliant idea: to invite the most famous sailors of the moment to accept the challenge of transporting salt from the Salt Pans of Ibiza and Formentera to Barcelona. In 1989 the idea was revived and adapted to a sports competition and the event has gone from strength to strength since then. Up to 300 boats compete every April for the prestigious Salt Route Regatta trophy.
