The Salt Route is a regatta that was born in 1989, in commemoration of the blockade that Barcelona suffered due to the Carlist wars. In May 1846, due to the blockade imposed on Barcelona by the Carlist armies during "La Revolta dels Mariners", there was a shortage of salt that endangered the city.
A well-known Barcelona businessman had the original idea of summoning the most famous sailors of the moment and presenting them with a challenge: he would pay for the services of transporting salt from the Salinas Pitiüses to El Garraf (Barcelona) but according to the order of arrival. The first to arrive would charge in gold, but the latter might not even be able to pay the sailors' salaries. Thirteen vessels presented themselves to the challenge. The first to arrive was the “Maltese Falcon”, a 32 m Baltimore schooner. of length and patterned by the Greek Andreas Potrus, followed by the jabeque "Jerba" and the brig "Arrogant".
