AS TWO female members of the Guardia Civil are part of a five woman crew participating in a transatlantic crossing from Valencia to Martinique in their boat Cannonball which leaves Spanish shores on November 6, they were all invited to meet the Director General of the Guardia Civil Arsenio Fernandez de Mesa.
The aim of this expedition, supported by the foundation against breast cancer is to transfer a message of hope and struggle to all those women who have suffered or are currently in treatment for this disease, showing that it can be overcome and also to show that women continue to evolve and meet all types of challenge.
The Director General expressed his admiration for these five women, who he described as “heroines” and an example for society. In addition, he offered all support from the maritime division of the Guardia Civil as well as last minute training if required.
