Noon Friday off Oropesa de Mar decided to stop and fix engine.  Torre de control asked to ‘rescue’ us.  Replied that we were happy to sail into port but would welcome a tow.  Boat arrived half a mile outside port and wanted Eu 142.85 to tow us in.  We politely declined and continued on to Tarragona.   More shifty winds at times through night, sometimes sailing at 6.0 knots others at 1 knot.
