We have been media partners for every one of the six SY forums held here since 2007."
"This year we are particularly proud to have invited the President of The Balearics, Sr. Jose Ramon Bauza to open the conference, which he has agree to do."
"Of course we will be there to film that, and some of the other keynote presentations. These will include one by Martin Bellamy whose Salamanca Group are redeveloping the Port Vell marina in Barcelona City.
Peter added; "We are also planning to interview Martin on camera and get some of his thoughts on the future of yachting in Spain which will be exclusively for our viewers."
