Hurrah - Gibraltar at last!

25 September 2010
We have finally arrived having had to motor here on the 23rd when there was no wind at all. The passage was uneventful but we don’t mind easy though sailing would be better. To starboard we could see a lot of traffic in the separation zones and hear ships checking in with Europa Point for clearance etc. It was busy around Tarifa as we arrived about the time the entire fishing fleet decided to come in along with a fast ferry from Tangier. Along the coast there are regularly placed watch towers built hundreds of years ago. As we neared the bay of Gibraltar it became foggy and the shore disappeared from view until we entered the bay.

The bay was busy with many tankers moored waiting to go to the refinery at San Roque and several fast ferries zoomed in from Africa. We tried to phone Marina bay in Gib but could not get through for some reason so headed on to the newly opened marina in La Linea Spain.
