Summer hols

24 June 2014
Cabo De Gata is the headland that divides the Costa del Sol and the Costa Blanca. After Almirimar we past the Cabo and enjoyed a lovely anchorage for a night. We knew it was exposed, but it remained beautifully calm till 07.30 when we had to lift the anchor and motor out the bay. Within half an hour we had 25 knots of wind and re-anchored in the lea of a rocky outcrop to gather ourselves and get some breakfast. Only option was to return south round the Cabo as all the anchorages further North where exposed to forecast winds for the next few days. We had another couple of good days anchored just south of the headland; nice swimming, books and bodies getting burned!

A great sail back into the bay of Almeria brought us to a Marina recommended to us at Aguadulce (awadulthe). Much nicer we thought than Almirimar so we negotiated a good deal to have the boat lifted onto the hard for its summer holiday.

18 Months in the water and almost 2,500 miles later she was still looking well but due antifouling and a polish before she goes back in the water and we continue our travels late in August.
