Lucky timing in Rota
17 September 2011 | Spain
We set off to Rota on our way back to Lagos and had to motor again. All went well until the engine cut out when we were 10m off the visitors pontoon so we glided in. Steve judged it perfectly and I just stepped off and secured a line to midships.
Steve checked us in at the office and they said they would send some help round to the berth to help us tie up incase we encountered trouble again. The same thing happened again but no one was there, we had put fenders on the bow as a precaution. I could not get off so we called out and a rigger working on the boat opposite helped so I could hop off and tie us up.
We are eating out tonight as we feel in need of a treat. An English speaking mechanic is visiting us Monday hopefully.
