Motored up the coast to Torredembarra (41.08.1N 001.24.1E) where we were directed to an extremely tight berth down a narrow lane filled with lazy lines which reduced the centre “alleyway” to about 6 meters wide (Siempre being 4 meters wide). An exploratory reverse down the lane had us pinging off a few, so after extracting ourselves we came out and went in bow to; although we still had to man-handle the boat into the narrow berth. We got the stern lines and bow line on without further trouble and the Marinero instructed us to make up a second lazy line to the bow which we did. Altogether quite a stressful arrival so we relaxed with a bottle of wine and a good dinner ashore.
