When we woke it was a clear blue sky and a pleasant
breeze. As predicted we did not make the eight o'clock start, Pete
not emerging from his favourite part of the boat until five to nine.
However, with a bit of cajoling we did manage to get underway by nine
thirty. It was a beautiful sail, we beat out of the bay and then turned
down the coast on a reach in 15 knots of wind and moderate seas.
The wind was easterly and down the east coast we
had to sail almost to Port Colom, our final destination, before we found a bay
that offered reasonable shelter from the east. We ended up at Calas
Magraner which is a beautiful well protected bay with three beachy coves and we
were to end up spending the night at anchor with just two other boats.
There was some swell but nothing like as bad we experienced when travelling
along the Spanish mainland.
After arriving we went swimming (the water is
definitely starting to turn more chilly) and then had a barbeque while watching
the sun go down. For the first time on this holiday we were then able to
sit out under the stars.
