. Was a bit windy, but otherwise it was a wait for several more days. Then, as soon as we got to Corsica, the next day the wind
switched to NW, so we had scarper across to the East side (Rodonda bay), which is when we had our 44kt gusts.
After that we went up the E side while the wind
was NW, then round the top and down the W side in calms, and then another quick dash to the E when the NW came in again. We passed Bonifacio twice in a blow before we actually got to visit it :-)
If you are in Ibiza (which we found boring) make sure you don't miss the NW coast of Mallorca (but you need calm weather). It is spectacular. North West Mallorca
