Andrew arrived early at 21:00 last Friday, 3 September . We had warned him whilst in the taxi that he might be concerned that he was being kidnapped as the Punta Lagoa marina whilst excellent and having the best location from a sailing point of view is situated a long way from the town and through a deal of small winding streets and alleys.
We spent a day tidying up in the marina and then moved off under the
Sunday we motored to
We arrived in
Monday we sailed via a lunch stop of a virtually deserted Isla Cies beach, the holiday season has definitely finished, and then onwards and back to the marina at the Monte Real Club de Yates Bayona. Following a walk around the citadel walls dinner was had in the privileged surroundings of the club.
The intention was to shop, perform an oil and fuel filter change on the main engine and then move to an anchorage ready to depart on Wednesday morning for the south. Two things conspired to foil that plan. The weather, the wind blew happily all day from the south ignoring the forecast, and I managed to strip the thread on the diesel bleed screw. We therefore stayed on the marina until Wednesday when a replacement bleed screw arrived, at no cost – thank you, and the weather improved.
