03 October 2011 | MAHON - ISLAND OF MENORCA

We had a good passage from Sardinia, with some good sailing – the 125% genoa made all the difference in the light winds – and wind steering Hydrovane ‘Henry’ got a go too! On Monday 3rd we arrived right on 1st light into Mahon, Menorca – returning again after 10 years! We anchored with 2 other yachts in the very safe, but far from town anchorage of Cala Teulera. The water was still enjoyable for swimming, and this old fort area of Mahon has a lovely setting. We were keen to wander around the lovely old city of Mahon again on Tuesday 4th – so took the boat closer into the town to anchor for the day and to make the dingy ride just 1 mile from town! Sadly the 5 day ahead forecast had a NW gale brewing -so we needed to move on again on Wednesday 5th. The weather affecting this island comes from the French Golfe du Lion, and now being October it can be forceful and last for many days. So, sadly just a short visit to Menorca this time – thankfully we had enjoyed a much longer visit here in July 2001. It was still a lovely as ever. The small harbour areas of Mahon remind us of a mini Sydney harbour with beautiful harbourside homes, and a lovely safe main harbour.
