Spain flag in de Leon time

Alvaro de MarichalarSpaniard adventurer Alvaro de Marichalar arrived on Wednesday in St. Augustine, Florida, after a 14-day solo journey on board his jet ski retracing the route explorer Juan Ponce de Leon took when he set sail and discovered Florida 500 years ago, Fox Latino News reports.

“It was a very tough route, but full of experiences and complete, because I managed to do it right on the fifth centennial of Ponce de Leon’s trip, ” he said.

Marichalar spoke by telephone with Efe as he was refueling his jet ski, which he named Numancia, just a few miles from St. Augustine, where Florida Gov. Rick Scott and other officials, sponsors and a crowd of fans who had followed his journey – which he began on March 20 in San Juan – were awaiting his arrival.

“I’m really exhausted. Tonight I’ve been sailing for 37 hours non-stop because I wanted to arrive on time, ” the adventurer, who made the journey without any support craft accompanying him, said hoarsely.

“It’s been a real adventure finding out where to refuel and solving problems that were coming up, ” the 51-year-old businessman said.

After spending his last “very cold” night on board the jet ski and making it through “a couple of really bad storms, ” upon his arrival in St. Augustine, the oldest city in the continental United States, Marichalar unfurled and waved the Spanish flag he had carried with him on the journey.

“The Spanish flag is the one that has flown in the U.S. for the longest time, ” he said, although he also brought with him the British and French flags, given that Florida authorities had wanted to involve those countries in the celebrations of the quincentennial of the discovery of Florida by the Old World.

“It’s been a spectacular welcome, with a beautiful atmosphere. The Americans have thrown themselves into this and they’ve made me feel very good, ” he said enthusiastically in another conversation with Efe after reaching the shore.

Marichalar began his jet ski journey – charted at 1, 624 nautical miles – on March 20 from the dock at San Juan’s Club Nautico.
