We pulled out of Alicante on Saturday, the 28 Sept, at 12:15 AM. It was good to finally start on our long anticipated voyage with Ben, Ugne, Monica, and Mike. The boat is a little more crowded with the extra people but it is great to be voyaging with Ben and Ugne again. This is the first long distance overnight trip Ugne has ever made. In fact last year was the first time she had ever been on a sailboat. She did ok though as the couple slept in the bow thru the night. There wasn�'t any wind but there were still the leftover waves from Friday. We ended up motoring the entire distance arriving at 1:25 Sunday afternoon.

We spent 2 nights and 1-1/2 days in Cartagena. The city has an interesting history as it has been home to many peoples. The Roman amphitheater was built in the 200 B.C. early Christians were there, the Huns tried to take the city and there was a significant Muslim population there. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella decided to unify Spain they needed to run out all the Muslims and Jews. And yes, this is the same Ferdinand and Isabella that sponsored Columbus�' voyages to the new world. His goal was to find a better trade route to the East Indies. We feel like our visit to their castle is the real start to our voyage as we retrace some of Columbus�' voyages.

We are currently motoring SW along the coast. We left at 4:00 AM and hope to be in port at Malaga tomorrow evening. We started out with no wind but it is coming up a little (< 10 knots) on our nose. The forecast is for light winds today and picking up tomorrow between Almeria and Malaga, but on the nose again. We are hugging the coast as the higher winds are forecast for further offshore. We would lay over a day but the kids have a Thursday afternoon flight to go home.
