After a great day sail we managed to get in close to the coast and lost all wind, just to stay out of a Force 6 message from our NAVTEX. Well the result was almost worse. No wind and 2 meter swells, the boat started rocking like mad in the middle of the night.
So we managed to sort everything out and our engine had to work for 13 hours and the last 8 where in thick ´thick fog.
Now we are in harbour, that was long ago, have walked the city which feels like "after holidays...." Empty streets and souvenir shops hoping for the last sale.
But it is hot, very hot!
