Beautiful pic. Those grand boats you favor have a certain majesty at anchor.

Enjoyed the peace & quiet of the pic after the turmoil of a certain other thread. Gotta learn to resist the temptation of the moth to the flame. Healthier to sign up with the Mallorca Squad.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

But...

They are not sailing. They are kinda stuck there...like...very expensive buoys, growing moss on their arses or something.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

I was revisiting my idea of using a a boat for small seminars with food and day trips for businesses, either in Sevilla or Mallorca. I came across this little vessel. A touch pricey when you add the VAT and the licences etc, but the design is good for river or calm coastal....

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Gary,

I'm not knocking Mallorca, I really liked it there. But, until you've seen Sardinia and Corsica.... "You ain't seen nothin' yet."

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Anyone know what the current situation is for anchoring in the various ports & calas up the east coast of Mallorca? It's been a while since we've been up that way & I hope we can anchor without too many reservations & hassle.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

We're back in port waiting for this wx to blow by. Then off to Cabrera again, then hopefully a slow trip along the East Coast.

Hope you get past your sniffles soon Weavis.
