Goodbye Port Ginesta, hello Port d'Aiguadolç
30 June 2012 | Port d'Aiguadolç (Sitges)
After almost 6 years in Port Ginesta I decided to move Iris to a new hailing port. The financial crisis here in Spain has obliged me to look for a cheaper berth. I found one in Port d'Aiguadolç in Sitges about 5 Nm south of Ginesta. Seven years ago, on my first trip with Iris and her previous owner Roy we stopped over here and moored about 20m from where now is her new home.
Today's trip was a short comfortable one and although unfortunately I couldn't raise the mainsail because the halyard got entangled, we managed to maintain 6 knots with only the genoa and a 20 knot wind at a broad reach.
In the coming weeks I will continue the deck painting project which is going on bit by bit.
