En route back to Valencia … finally!

We set sail for Ibiza at 6am yesterday … more than a week later than plan. The electricians finally completed their work on Thursday – 2 days later than expected. We’ve learned a lot about the way the boat works this week! Friday and Saturday saw gale force winds forecast with sea swells of 4-6m. Discretion being the better part of valour, we made the decision to delay our departure (again), enjoy a bit more tapas, play more scrabble and wait it out. I baked my first loaf of bread, spent a day in a spa and have done more boat polishing and cleaning than I thought possible! Sod’s law of course, we finally left Palma in relatively still waters and no wind. After a full day motoring. we anchored overnight in a bay on the northwest corner of Ibiza and left at 5am this morning for the final sail home. A special couple of hours sailing under a full moon before the sun rose behind us. The adventure continues …

Bread rising!
We love our Brompton bikes
Leaving Palma
Cap P snoozing – 4am was an early start!
