Title: Ibiza Departure



38:46.82N 01:25.55E

"I hate you all". This was the text message from Amy as she landed back in
UK. I guess we deserved it but before that...

Amy and Marcos had seemed to have hardly arrived but then they were leaving.
We had a great time and they were a fine crew. A superb dinner high up in
the old town of Ibiza was their treat and very much appreciated by the
skipper.

Ken had been here a day having arrived in the middle of the night. He
bustled and shopped till he dropped. Our damaged sail was repaired. Jonathan
arrived on time and the wind had gone to the east so we were set. No reason
to stay.

Seemed like a good idea to get out of the marina and break the new crew in
gently so it was off to a snug anchorage 10 miles away at Formentera. We
anchored in a beautiful almost circular bay with a fine sand beach and
watched the sun go down eating a tasty dinner of pork chops courtesy of Ken.

This was the place that Amy was so keen to come to and that the weather
prevented us for doing a few days earlier. This was the reason for the text
message.

First light and we are away, sailing downwind at 5 to 6 knots and on our way
to the coast of Spain near Cartagena, leaving behind our last island visit.

Question 5 Name the connection between the skipper and Sardinian island
stopover. Incidentally, still no correct answers for the last question.
