Santa Ponsa

11 September 2014
Santa Ponsa, Costa de la Calma, Mallorca (Majorca).
We left Foradada with low cloud and flat seas but by the time we passed between I Drangonera and the main island the wind had reached 14 knts of course on the nose so we had a few tacks to take advantage of the sailing conditions. Great sail, but missed the you beaut anchorage Andy had recommended. We spent the night beside Illa des Conilla before moving around to Santa Ponsa after breakfast. Yes! They have a beach, maybe imported(?) as the rest of the bay is rock. The town is made up of establishments of a mix of Spanish of course, Irish, Pommie, Asian, American, German and any other country you might imagine. Eateries and bars in competition with all things belonging to their country of origin, so you can have steak, ribs, hamburgers, pies as well as paella in the Spanish joints. What a choice after mainly pasta and expensive seafood. We are here at festival time. All week. Glen and Liz again have internet problems and so we will probably be here for a few days. So we will see the 785th re-enactment of the landing of King Jaume1(Jamie) of Aragon. The battle saw the defeat of the Muslim rule of the island. This is celebrated every September with mock battles between the Christians and the Moors and there is supposed to be some of those happening near where we are anchored. Box seats you would say. Medieval markets start today at midday and finish at midnight. They have a live concert every night on the beach beginning at 22.30 until 0130. We can hear it across the water.
