Sailing (!) to Ria de Arosa
Friday 24 September – updated on 26/9 with photos
We left Portosin assuming we would be motoring all the way to Ria de Arosa. As there was no wind we decided to go ‘rock hopping’ and take the inside passages around the Cabo Corrubedo. However to our surprise a good northerly wind appeared so we opted for sailing rather than extreme pilotage. It gave us chance to practice our downwind rig, goose winged with the yankee poled out.
We explored a few anchorages before settling the hook off a very quiet beach near the little harbour of Escarabote.
Just some of the many unmarked rocks offshore – and these are the ones you can see as they break the surface
A taste of trade wind sailing
