We left El Rompido on a high tide and followed the buoys
Sailing along gently at 4-5 knots we arrived at Chipiona
early evening. The entrance was a bit roly and the marina staff not very friendly,
but we eventually moved into a free berth and the local café had internet so we
caught Amalia & Riley on skype for bath time – brilliant !
The marina and beach front were a bit tatty but the town was
colourful and lively. We had breakfast in town and bought some farm animals and
bubbles in preparation for Amalia and Riley, who are visiting in two weeks time
Before leaving at midday we topped up with enough fuel to
last until Gibralter where we can take advantage of duty free prices.
Another gentle sail into Cadiz bay, we decided to anchor off the beach
as it was such a lovely evening.
