Lovely place, Vigo, but it rained a lot and was getting decidedly chilly for us.  Passage to Porto was uneventful, with little shipping to worry about.  Covered 83 nautical miles in 17.5 hours.  Wind astern and rolly seas made for an uncomfortable 1st half on port tack.  Better when we gybed onto starboard.  New marina at Porto is very welcoming but building work is on-going - and we're under the flight path.  Skies are cloudy too.  Let's hope we find somewhere nice to eat for Paul's birthday supper.
