Sant Carlas de la Rapita

A mid-day departure from Andraitx to Sant Carlas de la  Rapita (40.37.2N 000.36.3E) gave us a good sail for five hours before losing the wind and firing up the donkey. This was our first sail together through the night and Kim was too nervous to be able to sleep. A 2 meter quartering sea made it too uncomfortable anyway, so we corkscrewed through the rest of the night, slowing down to make landfall in daylight. The new marina was still under construction, with plenty of space available on floating pontoons and we berthed port-side to for the first time in a couple of years. A walk into town was required for dinner.
