Re: The Mallorca Squad

One of the good things about being home is lobster. Tonight we enjoyed our first lobster feast for since spring, and our first seasonal corn on the cob. It was lovely, on the patio, great food, lovely wx, almost no bugs, & a lovely Spanish wine. Sorry, no photos. My hands were rather sticky ....

Re: The Mallorca Squad

SM, we go directly to the government wharf & buy from a retailer on the wharf. They're about as fresh & lively as you can get.

Yummmm, & we have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

Hey folks... back in Portugal again.. got out of Almeria the day before the earthquake.. first bit of luck the whole trip.

Started off well enough.. 3.5 days of nice almost beam reach (10 to 15kt wind and pushing us at around 5-6kts) sailing then hit the calms..
Decided to head NE under motor to find some S'lies which came up further East than has been the norm for me.. 8-12kts SE so rode those a few days before hitting an Easterly wall.. rode that N at 55-60degrees off the wind.. shes a bilge keeler and slips if much closer.
Got to 450 miles ENE of Flores and figured the way things were going it'd be Ireland before anything changed so kicked the Mercedes V6 into life.
Horta was a welcome break.. anchored around 8pm then a frantic race to lift the jet bike out of the rib into the water.. lift the big rib and 15hp into the water.. hook up the jet bike and lift it back aboard and lash it down.. quick shower and hit 'Peter's' around midnight.. just in time for some great live music from a San Miguel trio.. and they were Excellent...
So.. a Great Landing.. ran into Sailing Gal and her crew Nigel and Judith, also a crazy Viking from Norway and Katherine his US GF... Dave.. a Brit solo sailor and a few others.. a fun few days off.
From there it was more motoring till around 150nm from St Vincent where it turned into a rising N gale with gusts in the low 40's.. sea's went from ripples to 4-5m but easy riding in the main with the odd growlers bursting against the hull.. but went along nicely around 7kts with 50% jib and main.. any faster was just punishing the boat..
Bilge pump failed while this was happening so it was into the bowels to do a change of pumps.. slippy stuff..
Portimao was another relax and a chance to dry and remove the genoa whose uphaul D clip on the top roller had snapped off at the weld and stuff it below..
The strong East winds eased so headed on E for an alleged window at the Straits only to run into a 40kt+ E'ly W of Cadiz.. the Merc earned its keep and got us into Cadiz tho' at times in the stronger gusts (48ish) we were down to 0.5kts with the sea's and wind on the nose..
Next morning upped anchor to reports of calm seas with a F3 SW and F4-5 SE in the Straits..
Reality was 2m sea and 25-30kts to Trafalgar and 30-35kts through the Straits.. then a calm motor on to Almerimar..
Man I love that 'Merc'...
The 'God's' were definitely Not smiling on this trip...
