Ibiza Nr Cala de Port RoigApril 21, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C
Yes we made it, not a crossing experience that I would choose to repeat, it was less windy and therefore choppy than during the day but during my 2 hour watch stints I had to remain outside to keep the ‘mal de mer’ 🤢 at bay by watching stars that were on our track. The autopilot was on so I was only trying to fool my stomach.😉Unfortunately said stars were a little too high in the sky so as well as being very cold I kept getting neck ache. But we arrived safely and have had a relaxing day. The morning was especially relaxing for John who, once we were anchored and had eaten went to bed, I did some reading about Ibiza, checked the grab bags prepared the washing and I am sure there was something else. I woke him to let me know I was going swimming, not sure if it’s the northern latitudes but the sea seems to be getting colder❄️, took a while to warm back up. After lunch we put the job rails back on so we can use the forward sail again, then rowed to the beach bar. Now I admit it did look a bit swanky but anyway John ordered a G&T I had a rose wine and we shared a water, the G&T cost 9.50!! Had a little wander but no where to go without transport so John rowed around the bay a bit, looked at the fisherman’s huts, photos tomorrow and will try to get better ones of the anchorage as well, just taken those and it’s 8:30 in the evening so not looking great. We are heading clockwise round the island but only little hops as current forecast means we won’t be headed to Mallorca till Friday.
Hope everyone is well and enjoying the updates, we are so pleased to be on the move.Read more
