Black Jack This Chris Craft Comanche sailboat, 13 meters long, was bought by Mario Nelson Galán Durán on the island of Antigua at the end of 1972, according to the instructions of Commander Francisco Caamaño Deñó, who in 1965 was Constitutional President and faced the military invasion of the United States government. On January 26, 1973 it sailed from Port-Louis on the island of Guadalupe commanded by Francisco Caamaño (41 years old), and manned by: Heberto Lalane José (27), Mario Nelson Galán Durán (25), Alfredo Pérez Vargas (26), Ramón Euclides Holguin Mars (26), Juan Ramón Payero Ulloa (24), Carlos Toribio Peña Jaques (36), Hamlet Hermann Pérez (38) and Claudio Caamaño Grullón (34). They arrived at the Bay of Ocoa, Azua on February 2, 1973 and set out on foot into the Fatherland at night. The purpose of Caamaño and the patriots under his command was to face the situation of servility and dependence that the Dominican Republic faced after the invasion of the US government in 1965. April 24, 2010, in the Dominican Navy, under the command of Admiral Homero Lajara Solá, the Black Jack was restored and delivered to the Caamaño Foundation so that it can be permanently exhibited to the Dominican people.
