Commemoration of National Navy Day
Conmemoran Día de la Marina Nacional. [+] Ver masFull article at this link
June 1 The 76th anniversary of National Navy Day was celebrated at the Fifth Naval Region Naval base in Isla Mujeres, which was attended by governmental representatives and special guests. It began at 10am. Fifteen minutes later, after the base Commander, Vice Admiral Hermimio Pacheco Durán, read the official message for the occasion, the delegation boarded the "P337 Tulum" to go out in the bay to place a wreath in memory of those who lost their lives in the line of duty. The ship was accompanied by other Naval boats and half a dozen tourist boats of various sizes.
Commander Pacheco Duran explained that June 1 was chosen as Navy Day, because that was the date in 1917 when the the Mexican merchant ship "Tabasco" left the port of Veracruz, with a crew consisting exclusively of native born Mexicans. This was in compliance with article 32 of the Constitution of the United States of Mexico promulgated on February 5, 1917.
Navy Day was celebrated for the first time on June 1, 1942, when it also served to honor the crews of the Mexican tankers "Potrero del Llano" and "Faja de Oro", which were torpedoed and sunk, by German submarines that year, on May 13 and 20, during the development of World War II. In that same decree, Mexico announced opposition to the Berlin-Rome-Tokyo Axis and in June and July of that year, 1942, the tankers "Tuxpan", "Las Choapas", "Amatlán" and "Oaxaca" were attacked and sunk.

June 1 The port was opened for small boats by the Harbor Master at 7am, due to a decrease in the strength of the low pressure system, but he said it could increase again in the evening, according to the forecasts issued by the National Weather Service (SMN) and the Department of the Navy (SEMAR).

June 1 Tourism activities resumed on land and at sea, stimulating the economy of Isla Mujeres. Nautical tourism activities included trips to Isla Contoy, whale shark tours, sport fishing, snorkeling, diving, and boat tours to the island. On land, sales improved but not at the same level as during high season. About fifty percent of the massage huts on the beach were busy, and about half of the fleet of 830 golf carts were rented. Those in the tourism industry are hoping for good weather on Saturday.
