Sunday was spent recovering from Saturday evening with a trip into the town to visit the medieval fair which is an annual attraction, followed by another excellent meal.


Monday involved a trip for Elizabeth and I and five from Celtic Breeze to Santiago de Compostella  by local coach, the original plan to hire a coach having been shelved due to the lack of boats arriving.  An excellent and most interesting outing which revived many memories of my last visit some 33 years ago with a Tall Ships Race.  As seems a feature of the Rally the visit concluded with a very convivial lunch in a well chosen (by Tony Dimont) restaurant.


Returning to La Coruna was followed by a sprint around a John Lewis like department store’s food and wine department for restocking, taxi back to the boat and a shower and quick change in time for the briefing  for the next leg in the splendid surroundings of the Real Club Nautico de Coruna.  This was followed by a Tapas party, on the Club terrace overlooking the marina, provided by the Rally.  Our first real opportunity to meet the other members of the Rally.
