Club Náutico Porto Cristo

Club Náutico Porto Cristo

Marina in Balearic Islands
PRESENTATION Mr. Joan Servera Amer chaired the Club from 1969 to 1980. From 1980 to 1990 Mr. Juan Servera Munar presided over the Club, years in which investments and improvements of the Club were carried out. He had to face in 1989 the famous "torrent" that destroyed several pontoons and caused major damage to boats and Club facilities. From 1990 to 1996, Mr. José Fuster Forteza held the position of President, carrying out reconstruction and improvement of the Club's facilities. From 1996 to 2011, Mr. Pedro Gonzalo Aguiló chaired the Club. In 2007, after long negotiations with Ports de les Illes Balears , the concession was renewed for 30 years, since the old concession expired in 2013. To do this, the conditions imposed by the port authority, which included, among others, had to be met. the reform of the pier, its facilities and the expansion of the pontoons. Said works were started in 2007 and finished in 2008 and with it the Sports Club was provided with modern, reliable facilities adapted to the new requirements. Likewise, the Club was provided with a new Training Classroom in order to carry out the Club's objective: the promotion and practice of sports activities, especially sailing activities. Throughout the year various courses and activities are held to promote sailing and everything related to navigation. Mr. Matías Servera Munar presided over the Club from 2011 to December 2018, with the unconditional support of the entire Board of Directors, who set their objectives framed in an austerity plan given the poor general economic situation in those years. Objectives were set such as promoting nautical sports activities and social activities, renegotiating better conditions with Ports IB, etc. Under the presidency of Mr. Matías Servera, the general condition of the Club's facilities was considerably improved, much of the social building was reformed, improving the exterior aesthetics and the two lower floors. On the ground floor "Sala Magna" improvements were carried out in order to have a large space to carry out the Club's own social activities, cultural activities and for rent for days to hold events, for the sake of to achieve profitability for the maintenance of the social building itself, among other objectives. In December 2018, elections to the Board of Directors were held, proclaiming the winner of a new board headed by Mr. Bernardo Bou Domenech (President), who had previously held the position of treasurer since 2007, under the presidency of Mr. Pedro G. Aguiló and later under that of D. Matías Servera. Port located on the Levante coast of the island of Malloca that has its antecedents at the time of the Roman Empire. The port's infrastructures are directly managed by the Government of the Balearic Islands, and the other is managed by the Porto Cristo Yacht Club. They are made up of the riverside piers on both sides of the cove, as well as a shelter dam and a containment counter dam. The direct management part has 259 moorings, of which 33 are intended for transit vessels. To these figures must be added the 216 moorings managed by the NC of Porto Cristo. Located in the east of Mallorca, the port of Porto Cristo has been known since Roman times, as evidenced by the different archaeological finds that have been made over the years; about two kilometers inland from the stream the Roman wharf and the remains of a boat were found. In 1934 another boat loaded with amphorae, dolls and a lead iron was discovered, about 50 meters from the beach. The first news about fishermen in the cove date from 1247 and the sale of fish in the Plaza de Manacor, probably from Cala Manacor, from 1282. It is evident from the buildings near the coast for defense and surveillance, but also by the oral tradition that pirate attacks must have been constant until the 19th century ended. This fact and the arrival of a series of families of fishermen from other towns in Mallorca, such as Felanitx, Capdepera or Valldemossa, gave commerce and fishing a new impulse, despite the lack of port facilities. The small boats stranded on the sandy beach, while the bous and merchants anchored in front of the Cueva des Correu and the loading and unloading of the goods was completed on a floating platform. For this reason, the construction of a dock and a dry dock was quickly demanded. In 1932 the Amadeus II dredger arrived in Porto Cristo and worked until 1936, the year when the construction of a 100-meter long firm dock began, from the dry dock to the fish market. The fishing activity forced a series of improvements such as the creation of the Porto Cristo and Cala Bona fishermen's Post that a few years later would give rise to the Fishermen's Association or the inauguration of a shipyard owned by Jaume Vaquer 'Vermell' in 1943. In 1968 the Rivet dock was built and the mollet was fitted out with the construction of offices and warehouses for fishermen. In the 1970s, electric lighting was provided and the Yacht Club was built. Since then, interventions to improve the port have been constant, with the construction of new port buildings with warehouses for fishermen, fish chambers, a restaurant, offices, mooring trains, etc. that allow to give to the user and visitor of the port the best reception and service.
