Figueira to Nazere
We are leaving Figueira to go to an unscheduled stop
at Nazare , we should have been going to Peniche but the pontoons had been
damaged and were not ready to be occupied by the Rally boats , so we went to
Nazare for one night .
Nazare is a small marina with new pontoons and as usual we
were made to feel very welcome by the Marina staff , who together with the Rally
Portugal staff help all the boats tie up to the pontoons , it was a short
notice stop but the organisation was Tip Top , Andrew and Paul from Rally
Portugal really do work very hard to ensure the trip runs smooth and all the
rally are pleased with them. We are not pleased with our result in this leg as
we chose to go out to sea to get a better wind , but the boats that stayed
inshore had a better run , so although we pulled it back at the end we just run
out of time. So we are not hopeful of a top three place.
Tomorrow we leave for Peniche but on the way we are
stopping to anchor at an island which is famous for its wild life.
Regards to all
