43:25.25N 8:11.82W Monday 2 August 2010 Redes, Ria de Ares, Spain
I am not sure where Sunday morning went. Whatever, the result was that
we were just finishing a leisurely lunch in the cockpit at 15:00 when Hose, our
friend from the yacht club introduction yesterday, came by and asked if we
would like to have a sail in his boat Pelocon, a Dehler 31 that he regularly
races. He wished to show us some of the sights around
Well, we were treated to a great sail in a very responsive boat – with a tiller that I was allowed use, and saw some wonderful coastline up into the Ria de Ares. We returned by 20:30 and by 21:00 were back in the Club saying thank you to Hose in the only way that we could offer – quad G&T’s. We had a wonderful afternoon and have been overwhelmed by his generous hospitality.
Following from our trip on Sunday we decided to leave
Returning to the boat we dropped off the frozen goods and managed to fit in a late lunch of calamari and sardines before leaving at 17:20 for a very pleasant 12 mile sail to Redes in the Ria de Ares, where we are now anchored, 19:30 in glorious sunshine.
Dinner beckons with some of the plunder from the morning shop.
