Heading back home

02 July 2011 | Corme
We have had 5 days of strong Northerlies which has made our progress back to A Coruna from Vigo quite slow and painful. Some days we had over 40 kts. We have not used a marina once since we arrived back to collect Moana from San Adrian. It saves a fortune and is much nicer than berthing in a marina. We only have 1/2 of one tank (we have two tanks) of water left so showers are being rationed (or shared ;-)).

Had a nice time on Illa Arousa and we used a fishing boat mooring for two nights as it blew like crazy for a while and I'm glad we weren't on anchor. We were the only yacht for the first day and then two more joined us and they both picked up moorings also. The fisherman didn't have a problem as there were plenty of spare unused moorings.

We are almost in Corme where we will spend the night at anchor again and eat on board and have a wander around ashore for a while.
