39:33.7N 02:37.8E Pantalan Mediterraneo, Palma to Andraitx via Porto Portals
After boat shop in Carrefour we depart from Pantalan Mediterrania to Illetas Cala
anchorage between Palma and Porto Portals - where we later moved to in order
for engineer to come out to repair the bow thruster. This is essential for future
cruising. This includes a part expected from Amel, La Rochelle to be delivered by FedEx.
What a pleasure to be away from town at anchor and to be able to just jump over
the side for a refreshing swim.
Wendy and David Hill friends from the IOMYC in Pt St Mary e-mailed to say they
were celebrating their Silver Wedding Anniversary in Majorca’s Porto Cristo on the
east coast and hoped to see us whilst out here.
We had hoped to cruise up Majorca’s east coast before heading for Barcelona
And to meet up with the Hills but the delays caused by the bow thruster failure
has sadly put paid to that. We shall now have to head straight from Andraitx due
north to Barcelona where it is intended to leave the boat for the month of August..
