The entity shows losses in recent years, but the board headed by Gabriel López wants to launch a viability plan
The eight hundred members of the Real Club de Regatas de Cartagena (RCRC) decide this Sunday if the centennial entity disappears or approves an economic viability plan to tighten their belts and stay afloat. The assembly is at 10:30 am and has as one of the points of the day to publicize the financial status of this organization, which in recent years showed losses of more than 60,000 euros.
The years of 2019, 2020 and 2021 closed with negative surpluses of 31,563, 30,310 and 10,522 euros, respectively. The forecast for this 2022 does show a positive result of 32,082 euros. In any case, the call sent to all the partners specifies that the RCRC is in “insolvency” and is bound to request “the voluntary insolvency of creditors” because “it is not meeting its present obligations and has to postpone them to the following month ».
A heated assembly of partners, a few months ago, led to the resignation of the previous board of directors headed by José García-Bravo. The team led by Gabriel López Escobar, a 66-year-old auditor from Madrid who has lived in Cartagena for years, was elected from the elections held at the beginning of August.
Be productive and raise quotas
The new president has already given a notice to navigators before the voting. He warned the partners of the “technical bankruptcy” of the Real Club de Regatas de Cartagena and its “negative net worth.” Although the dissolution is raised on the agenda for this Sunday, López Escobar’s intention is to “close the holes”, improve productivity and raise the fee for passers-by who arrive at the Alfonso XII Pier, he assured LA TRUTH before being elected. There are about thirty employees and some, to make ends meet, have been laid off.
The new president advocates tightening his belt, organizing more activities and exploiting the mooring points of the port
This newspaper tried to locate the president of the RCRC, without success. Close sources pointed out that he will not make public statements “out of respect for the partners” until the assembly is over. There are nine points of the day in today’s session.
The first is to approve minutes that were pending due to the resignation of the previous directive. And then, make the entity’s accounts public. It will be in the next section when the 800 members decide whether to agree to the continuity or the possible dissolution of the centennial club. If it is finally decided to continue, two of the most urgent tasks will be to renovate the building concessions that the RCRC has next to the cruise terminal and to maintain the 400 mooring points of the marina.
The club organizes tests at regional, national and international level. The Vuelta a las Islas, Cartagena-Ibiza and Navegante Juan Fernández regattas are well known, as well as light sailing events such as the City of Cartagena. It also stands out in dragon boat, rowing and sport fishing, among other modalities. The RCRC maintains the Blue Flag for the quality of its waters in the marina. The directive intends to better exploit all its resources: there is a swimming pool, gym, cafeterias and fees below the national average.
