Alicante Awaits

02 June 2022 | 38 20.362'N:0 29.043'W, Real Club de Regatas, Alicante,Spain
All good things must come to an end, but not until the skipper decided it was time to stop the boat and go for a swim, for most people for pleasure, but for the skipper it was a chance to inspect Zephyr's hull to see how the MacGlide had coped with the encounter with the fishing nets off Morocco. Happily there was no sign of damage either to the hull, the propellor nor the impellor although the MacGlide had suffered from an overly enthusiastic hull clean in Antigua.

We spent the next 16 hours under engine as the wind died to a whisper (actually a zephyr would be more appropriate) and apart from dodging a few more fishing pots, our passage to Alicante was untroubled by anything unexpected and we safely arrived into the marina at 10.00 am precisely.

So ended another wonderful passage on the mighty Zephyr and my thanks to Michael & Francesca and Micky for allowing it all to happen. Micky was much missed on board but grandfather duties must always take priority; I know that to my cost!

After note from the Skipper. Chris forgot to mention that last night was curry night and what with poppadums, garlic naan bread and some wonderful spices, the ball was once again knocked out of the park and into the next county. Chris was awarded the Zephyr Masterchef Champion for June 2022.
