We made our landfall in Spain in Viveiro, 43:40.93.N, 7:36.16W. Following our last post on Friday the 21st, the winds fell light and we had to motor for more than 24 hours as , despite some very grey looking clouds to the west on Friday evening we found ourselves in a complete calm.  The wind finally began to pick up again with about 100 miles to go, and we were able to point directly to A Coruna, but during Saturday night the wind increased and on Sunday we decided it would take too long heading into the wind and sea to get to A Coruna, so we turned east and had a fast sail along the coast to Viveiro.

The marina here is at the head of the very pretty Ria of the same name as the town, and just a short walk from the main street.  The old part of the town is all narrow streets, with restaurant tables stopping delivery lorries getting through.
