Friday 3rd July 2015

Awoke to bright sunshine and little wind.  Messed around getting the key for the pontoon back to the harbour master and eventually cast off at 12:30.  We had a pleasant motor on a calm sea northwards along the coast spotting the landmarks we have passed so often in the car travelling to and from Barcelona.  At 18:00 we arrived in Port Ginesta (41:15.41N, 001:55.29E) near Castelldefells, just outside Barcelona Airport.  We had a few problems trying to get into our assigned berth, it was just too tight to get Evelyn B to reverse in safely, since the evening breeze had got up. Back to the fuel pontoon and another berth assigned which we eventually got into alongside, although I made a poor job of it!

This is a very large marina with lots of services, which include some good restaurants!  We had a lovely evening meal and a good sleep.
