Maritime (Boat) Pilgrims obtaining a Compostela

Time of past OR future Camino
2023
Since 2016 the Pilgrim Office in Santiago de Compostela have been recording Compostelas issued to Maritime Pilgrims. I am not sure if 2016 was the first year that they issued a Maritime Compostela or if it was simply when they started publishing the numbers who obtain this Compostela. I don't know what the conditions are around being able to claim this Compostela, perhaps someone who does know can point us all to the current rules.

I did read somewhere, probably on the Forum, about some Irish Pilgrims who rowed from Ireland to Spain. Possibly that was the 2016 group, I am not sure. Since 2016 it has become more popular and this year has seen the highest numbers of Maritime Compostelas ever with over 125 issued in July.

Below is a graph (using figures from the Pilgrim Office) showing the ebb and flow (is that a pun) of Maritime Pilgrims since 2016. Enjoy.

Wonderful! I don't have the balance and at 84 am considered too old for the shenanigans but what about paddle boarders and quad bikes eh? :) Its bad enough to be run over by cyclists and horsemen but now you can go for a dip and meet your maker courtesy of a jet ski :) Changed days!
