If there is one animal which represents the headstrong and tireless spirit of those who participated 500 years ago in the feat of sailing around the world, that is the Donkey.
Contrary to popular belief, donkeys are intelligent and sensitive creatures that never give up and have a noble character.
That is why a little donkey has been given the name "Aitor Elcano" and is going to form part of the team of the Association.
This animal, in addition to bringing cheer to our activities with its presence, will sail with us, and accompany us to promotional events.
The donkey has been loaned by the International "Happy Donkey" Association, which is also committed to participating in our project.
All we can say to our little long-eared friend is … Welcome aboard!
