The Nauta 360 Editorial Unit’s nautical portal has been honored this year with the Mariano Aguado Communication Award from the Terras Gauda National Sailing Awards for its great contribution in disseminating the main news produced on the sport of sailing and nautical sector in Spain.

The jury that awards the awards has wanted to recognize the trajectory of Nauta 360 since it released moorings in 2011 under the umbrella of Editorial Unit (El Mundo, Marca and Expansión) to become one of the key references of specialized information in Spain.

Its nearly half a million unique monthly readers, with a percentage of 80-20 national and international, make Nauta 360 one of the platforms with the largest audience of Spanish nautical portals, who access it through the digital portal of Expansion, where it has a fixed section.

At the controls of the portal are Héctor Atienza and Alberto Mas, who focus their work on two lines of information: the most relevant sports news (Copa América, Ocean Race, Vendée Globe, Copa del Rey, Olympic sailing…) and the great news of the nautical market (products, events, shows…), which they address with an editorial philosophy that seeks simplicity and clarity in the story.

Guidelines that have been maintained since the “Náutica” supplement of the newspaper El Mundo was created in 2004, a pioneer in the general media in Spain and the seed of what, after various evolutions, is now Nauta 360.

The journalist Alberto Mas, one of the portal’s coordinators, will be in charge of collecting the award at a gala to be held on September 7 at the Monte Real Club de Yates de Baiona.
