We set sail for Motril so that the Taylor’s sailing holiday might have some element of sailing about it, but in the afternoon the wind turned to the West and strengthened as we approached the point before Motril. As the seas got bigger we realised that we weren’t going to make past the poit, so turned back and sailed at 7-8 knots to Adra, a recently expanded marina. We couldn’t raise them by phone or on the VHF so picked a good spot on a new but not commissioned pontoon. A security guard turned up and allowed us to stay there. Had a good dinner on board, rather relieved to have found shelter in time!
