Back to Valencia
15 June 2012 | Valencia
Back to Valencia, need to make a dash back to the UK, so where better to leave the boat, but back in the capable hands of Anna at Yacht Base. We left Mallorca at 7am and Richard motored & sailed all the way for 19 hours. (135 miles non stop )Got in at 3am this morning. I fell asleep about midnight, but he stayed up, but dosed off to waking with a start that something was amiss, only to look over the spray hood to see a massive ferry bearing down on him. He was strapped to the pilot table by his life jacket & got in a major panic to get back on the helm to veer the yacht to the right. Fortunately the ferry was on the ball & he veered to the right, as did Richard when he got onto the helm. He said his heart was in his mouth, while watching all these faces peering over the side of the ferry down at him. Another lesson learned! So we are off back to the UK and then will be back on the 2nd to continue around Mallorca.
