Tuesday 23rd June
We left Sines at 7.00am this morning and rounded Cabo de Sao
Vincente at 2.00pm into the Algarve.
It has been a lovely day again and we polished all the
stainless steel/chrome during the trip only to get it splashed with salt water when
the winds picked up as we approached Lagos.
I really don’t like sailing with a clean boat, it’s
all too messy !
We checked in at reception in Lagos and we were told that the marina was
very busy and they only had a hammer head mooring which was a bit more
“That’s fine” we said, naively, “how
much is it?”
“110 euros per night” came the reply.
Wow, more than staying in a very nice hotel for the night,
we were shocked.
“You can stay on the reception pontoon for the night
at our usual rates of 87 euros, if you like?”
We left the pontoon shortly after to anchor comfortably in
the bay and Mark is washing all that nasty salt water off my sparkling chrome.
We hope these prices aren’t the same throughout the
