The Ibaialde association has collected €800 to help the process of building the San Juan whale ship


This Saturday, 60 members of the Ibaialde Association came from Anglet to the Albaola Sea Factory in order to offer their support to the building of the whale ship. Erme Pedroso, manager of Albaola, welcomed them at the carpenter´s workshop and gave the representatives of the association a certificate in recognition of the sponsorship made.

The Ibaialde Association works hard to promote and spread knowledge of Basque maritime heritage. The rowing expedition they undertook in Quebec in 2013, called Indianoak, is a prime example of this. Our common aim of promoting Basque maritime heritage brings our two associations together.

On behalf of the Albaola team, we would like to say, Thank you Ibaialde!
