Sardinia to Balearic Islands (Day 3)

19 August 2018
We arrived at Porto Colom, Spain on the 3rd day from Cagliari, IT. We find the days are running together when we are at sea.

Wind and seas were calm on Friday the 17 so Monica took the opportunity to bake some bread. She has tried a couple recipes and they never rose much. This time she used a recipe from Rebekah and it came out real good and light. It’s going to be good to get fresh baked bread in the middle of the ocean next year.

Most of our passages have been motor-sailing with intermittent sailing without the engine. We started 18 Aug with good wind and waves from the north. We shut off the engine and didn’t hear it again for 22 hours. We were using only the jib on a reach and occasionally hitting 6 knots or more. We depowered the sail so we would arrive in Porto Colom after dawn on Sunday. The waves were running 6-8 feet with some swells greater than 10 feet. The boat handled the conditions well and we settled into the passage by spending a lot of time in the cabin reading, visiting and sleeping. The wind died so we motored the last 2 hours into Porto Colom. We borrowed a mooring ball while waiting for a response to our hailing the marina. One of the priorities is to get another SIM card for our hot spot so we have internet service in Spain. We covered 514Nm in 5 days from San Vito, Italy to Porto Colom, Spain with one short stop in Sardinia for fuel.
