The August edition of National Geographic included a 10-page leaflet of illustrations that traces the story of the Basque whalers and a 14-page article about Albaola Sea Factory. PIHER has been collaborating with this project sharing our clamping tools to constructe the nao the San Juan and his International Boat Building School.
The total of 24 pages dedicated to the nao San Juan in this National Geographic Spain, Germany and USA edition is one more important step for the Albaola association. It comes as a gift to celebrate the 4 years of the opening of the Albaola Sea Factory of the Basques, where all this story comes to life, is gathered and you can visit it all year.
