Tuesday 7th July 1998... We left La Coruna anchorage, and got as far as Carcubion, 37 miles away,. We rounded Cape Finisterre on route to our anchorage, this Cape is featured in the UK weather area, it was very rough and rugged.
We could not get the anchor to hold, due to very heavy weed, so tied up to a large ship buoy, luckily we were not moved off during the night, although we did hear it knocking on the hull sometimes.

Saturday 13th July...0600 hours on passage to Sines, on arrival at 1400 hours we prepared to anchored, having the anchor hanging over the bow, when we suddenly notice that there was a marina in the corner of the bay, not shown on chart.
We decided to go there, forgetting the anchor was still hanging; there was some funny remarks about our mooring techniques with the anchor hanging down, calling it the "Mr Bean" technique.
