Having changed our plans from anchoring again as swell not good (means Mrs F especially struggles to sleep!!) and problems with the mainsail we took up our berth on the RCNP pontoon. this is where we will be next week for the Oyster Regatta and we are leaving the boat here over the winter until end of next April when the plan is to sail her to Britain.

David had already been onto Oyster re the jammed mainsail and two guys arrived at 9.00am to hopefully sort. Fortunately by sending someone up the mast and giving it as good yank all seemed to be OK - couple trial runs done taking mainsail in and out and all sorted. Quite funny as one very large guy and one small and yet its the large guy Dimitri that was sent up the mast!

As this happened very early and efficiently we decided not to stay on the pontoon but head back out to an anchorage Cala Blanca west along the coast from Palma .

We stayed there a couple of nights - great for swimming and generally chilling.

This chap spent his time going round bay collecting rubbish though we could see very little evidence of this. Which is good.
