Sailing around the Iberic peninsula
We finished some works with Pascal who kindly came to help for the first part of the delivery trip.
We started as planned August 20th from Bandol. On a direct leg towards Menorca island, we tried the new spinnaker in very light winds, and in a terrible heat.
Then, after a short rest into a beautiful wild caleta on the southern coast of the Island we quickly reached the South of the archipelago, where we had to escape a severe storm off Formentara.
More than 50kt of wind, then we reached Andalousia on a lovery run with our black reacher, surfing the blue waves of the Med, at an average speed of 8 knots, which is not bad for such an old lady.
In Garrucha we decided to change the wardrobe, as lighter and more upwind conditions were expected.
So installed we the genoa, which kept us sailing all along the spanish and portuguese coasts.
And finally, after a quiet second part of the voyage, with the great help of Tom and Tony, we reached our final destination and moored PIZCO alongside GRYNING, in Asturias.
