    The Guardian Angel - Helping cross the Atlantic 40 years

    Rafael, Rafael, Rafael.
    These three words were repeated as a mantra every night for 21 days from the Gota del Rocío, a sailboat that last Christmas crossed the Atlantic on a journey that had Rafael del Castillo on the other side. The veteran sailor -an Guardian Angel in the words of those who know him - has been offering his help to all those brave men who venture to cross the Atlantic Ocean over the last 40 years.
    He is on daily - 365 days a year - to pass the weather report and provide all kinds of assistance to the boats that request it.
    He has put mariners in contact with doctors, has coordinated more than one rescue in the middle of the ocean and has drawn up new routes to avoid hurricanes.
    His renowned work among the world of the sea has led him to be nominated for the Prince of Asturias Award.
