Navigation Doubts...

15 August 2008 | Mazagon, Spain
Graham
Having left Ayamonte as soon as there was enough water to cross the sand bar at the entrance to the river, we set off towards Mazagon about 35 Nm away. With a flat sea, 15 knots of wind, auto pilot on, and feet up, we had a fantastic sail all the way today in what can only be described as ideal conditions. We had been going some time when Tracey mentioned the subject of the large land mass which had appeared to the south of us. This was somewhat confusing as the only land I was aware of was Africa, and that should have been about 130 miles away unless there had been a severe navigational hiccup and the boat speed had increased twenty-fold ! No, it was definitely there. Looks like we have seen our first mirage at sea today - quite an add experience. Within about 10 minutes, the entire image had gone. Anchored here off Mazagon, we are next to a glorious beach with some very impressive looking houses up on the hill above. There are trees lining the river banks and it is certainly more picturesque than we imagined from the description in the almanac and pilot guides. There is plenty of room to anchor, in sand, and there are no beach bars blasting music at us tonight!
