Friday 30th October
After a good nights sleep, we set off from
Cartagena at 0800 in to light winds. As proven optimists we put the sails
in-out-in-out-in a few times for good measure before our old friend head to wind
comes back yet again late afternoon!!!!!!!!
Fog patches develop overnight and everything gets
and stays wet!!!!!
Sat 31st October
Much talk of fog burning off by 10am at first light
- which it doesn't! A brief brush with P&O's Aurora which was briefly
predicted to pass 75ft from us doing 25knots got Matt on the radio quite quickly
just in case.
Having heard no fog signals all day Matt decides we
need to be doing the right thing ourselves as it thickens considerably later in
the day so he gets the aircan horn out. At least the fog clears as we near land
and makes mooring at La Duquesa easier. Lots of I'm over here where are
you chatter on the radio all day.
A couple of beers and an Indian meal finish the day
Looking towards the Costa del Sol
