After Ibiza we went and sailed around to Mallorca. It was a 60-70 n.m. trip so we had a long day ahead. My Dad left at 6:30 a.m. without me (of course I was still on board. I didn't want to confuse you.) in 15 knots of breeze. We sailed until I got up and the wind died (I wonder if I'm bad luck!). We proceeded to try to sail 'til the jib made out if iron, steel, and other various assorted metals (namely a motor) was put up. But we hadn't filled up with diesel in Ibiza (it was .96 ' per liter, 1 ¢ more than here) so we were wondering when the engine would quit. We had the jerry jugs full of diesel from Charleston so we emptied those into the tank. Fortunately the engine didn't quit. We got to Mallorca at sunset.

Right now we are in an anchorage near Palmanova (which in turn is near to Palma). It is a fairly protected anchorage but luckily (as the title mentions) we are not rolling. There is a beach nearby along with some development. Along with the beach came the usual inhabitants of the anchorage - jet skis, small dinghies, large dinghies, HUGE inflatable boats, weird round boats, and the anchorers themselves. So, judging by all the boats around here you might guess at there being a wake. Well, guess what! You're right! There's wake generated by them and the racers.

Speaking of racers, the King was in town racing in the MedCup race today. There were probably 100-200 boats out there. The King was on one of them. They churned up the water so much that it created a confused sea even out here! It was fun to watch the spinnakers all going down the course with all of the cool different color combinations. What reminded me of this was a big, grey catamaran with the words, "Audi MedCup Circuit" on it in big words.

What inspired the title is the fact that in every anchorage that is not fully protected our boat turn sideways to the waves. Those waves made the boat roll up and down, up and down, up and down, and so on. It got very tiring after a while.

Well now I'm off to eat dinner and to try to find a place where I can submit this blog!
