• Fuera de Serie, Icon and Telva have all written articles on the island based on the forthcoming Menorca Maxi Regatta.

    Last week three important national news reporting teams came to Menorca for the first time to cover articles on the island and especially our coastline and waters.

    Fuera de Serie, the El Mundo and Expansión supplement, focused on the famous Menorcan boat known as ‘llaüt’ and the island’s seafaring heritage. Their schedule included a visit to a master boatbuilder, a modern boatyard, trips in the harbour in both a llaüt and the classic ‘vela latina’ boat and another trip along the south coast. They interviewed retired fishermen and paid a fleeting visit to Sa Nitja and the Cavallería lighthouse to get a feel for the ‘anar a romandre’ custom of overnighting in a cave or old boathouse by the water. This was organized by the Centre Artesanal de Menorca and Fundació Destí Menorca, and the photographer was Luis de Las Alas.

    Icon Magazine, El País’s supplement magazine for men, came from the 5th to 7th of May with a team of seven…photographer and assistant, journalist, stylist, makeup artist and models. They covered the historical centre of Ciutadella, Faváritx Lighthouse, Cala Morell and Calasfonts to highlight the wealth of contrast that the island offers. The photographer was Nacho Alegre and the stylist Nono Vázquez. The edition is due out in June.

    Telva Magazine covered two articles during their three-day stay, one focused on horse-riding to La Vall beach and having a swim, and another featuring the lighthouse and cliffs of Cavallería and the lovely bay of Alcaufar. They were a team of six, including photographer and assistant, stylist, makeup artist, hairdresser and models. The photographer was Esperanza Moya.The edition is due out in June.

    Four articles on Menorca in just five days, describing an island that many people still don’t know. Soon all the crews competing in the Menorca Maxi will see Menorca for themselves - from none other than the finest sailing boats in the world, the Wally J Class.
