Yes, my fine salty friends, seven naval warships will dock on the said Friday and members of the public will be able to visit from 17.00h to 20.00h and then on Saturday from 10.00h to 13.00h and then 17.20h to 20.00h in the evening.
The Chairman of the Port Authority, Francisco Álvarez de la Chica, and Naval Commander Antonio Mínguez, who has Almería and Motril Port within his responsibilities, announced the event, together with the Mayor of Motril, Flor Amon at the Club Náutico de Motril.
The ships that will dock will be the frigate Numancia, the patrol vessel Meteoro, the fleet auxiliary ship, Las Palmas and four mine layers, all of which will be open to members of the general public.
There’s even a free bus service from the centre of Motril, starting Friday afternoon and running through Saturday. There will also be special parking spaces made available in the port
Sounds like a great opportunity, so I’ll definitely be going and without a doubt, ex-powder monkey, Dave Darby, bless his briny socks!
