The next excitement was rounding
We ended the day in Barbete, one of a series of excellent marinas run by the Empresea Pública de Puertos de Andalucia; Mazagon was another of theirs. A text book Amel style stern to berth with a finger pontoon; which was just as well as the place was deserted with no handy passerby to take lines. The Amel technique is to go backwards until you hit the marina then hold the boat there using gently engine and bowthruster whilst crew (i.e. skipper) gets ashore with lines.
