We have motored round to spend a few weeks here so we can have some work done on the engine by Kevin, a Perkins mechanic who seems very efficient so far. Gordon came round from La Linea with us to see what it is like mooring up Med-style bows to, as he and Rose plan to sail to Malta this summer. The problem with Gib is that there is a tide drop of about a metre so you need to adjust the lines more than further in the Med, especially as you are moored to concrete quays!
Here is our view from the cockpit.
We have had the Levanter again and it has been quite rough and very wet! At midnight the other night Steve had to go onto the boat next door to help the girl with her lines as her partner was out. We also met the couple on the boat on the other side for the first time as they were up too moving fenders around!
