The Ruta de la Sal is a race who was born in 1989, in commemoration of the blockade that Barcelona suffered because of the Carlist Wars
In may 1846, because of the blockade imposed on Barcelona by the Carlist armies during "La Revolta dels Mariners", there was a shortage of salt that endangered the city of Barcelona.

A well-known Barcelona business man had the original idea to summon the most famous navigators of the time and present a challenge: pay services to transport 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 last maybe even could pay the wages of the crews.

Thirteen ships were submitted to the challenge. The first to arrive was the "Maltese Falcon", a schooner of Baltimore 32 m. in length and skippered by Andreas Potrus Greek, followed by the jabeque "Djerba" and "Arrogant" Brig.
