Another 60NM daysail on donk with mostly unusable light winds although some gusts off the Mallorcan north coast from time to time. Rain threatened although just didn't happen, thankfully. Pilot info on this bay indicated we would find restricted space to drop our hook. No such thing and no Balearic Poseiden mooring buoys causing problems either so we were able to drop nicely into a sandy bottom. ONly problem here is that we are open to any incoming 'roll' from the west. Whilst there is no westerly winds or seas there are, however, stinkpots (big and small) passing from time to time and boy, do they create a rolling sea from time to time? Perhaps the sea will settle calm when the stinkpot owners have all retired to the land of nod? Not so bad really and very handy as a starting point for heading towards Ibiza tomorrow morning, as we continue to narrow the gap towards Gibraltar. Looking like we may need to add more fuel, specially if we continue to have to donk our way there.
Chicken tonight (defrosting) which I bought from Mahon week before last (the day my feet fell out with me!).
