Arrival at Alicante

30 August 2018 | Alicante, Spain
After passing Ibiza the wind died and we motored the distance to Alicante. We motored along the Spanish coast and noticed it was well developed for the summer vacationers. All of the beaches were covered with people and their umbrellas and there were many condo looking buildings right at the waterfront of the towns.

We arrived at Alicante early enough on Monday the 27 to anchor, swim and relax before heading into the marina. The marina and surrounding area is kept clean and security seems to be pretty good. There is a gated entry to the docks area with a manned guard shack 24/7. We spent 2 nights in the marina before moving to the boat yard.

We first went to the old abandoned boat yard as described in the Mediterranean Almanac. There were a few derelict boats still there but no personnel. Veradera STA boat yard is now located in the new harbor which opened during the last year or two. The new harbor was built to better handle the commercial ships including the cruise ships that stop in the port. Veradera has a huge facility and the boat storage area is poured and finished concrete. There are 3 travel lifts available. They were in the process of launching a large 120 ton motor yacht as they were lifting ours out. Neverland should be safe here until we return next year to continue our adventure of bringing her back to the USA. For now it is good to know she is once again in the western hemisphere. We leave later today to fly home. Monica will be back in the pulpit Sunday morning. I plan to post more photos in the coming week once we are back home.
