Yone started fencing 2 years ago. The local Puerto de la Cruz fencing club is quite a prestigious one and has formed many a champion. Master Enzo Cherubino was responsible for all of these victories.
When I studied at the British Yeoward School, in the mid 80’s, I had a classmate who was National junior champion. And that’s quite an achievement for such a tiny far away place as Puerto de la Cruz. Dominique Schuchard’s photo is still hanging on the wall in the club.
Enzo Cherubino passed away quite suddenly last august. Since then the club and its members have been through a phase of adaptation and renewal.
Yesterday Yone took up where he had left off before the summer holidays. Without Enzo, but with expectation and enthusiasm. And it felt good to be back.
