Based in Palma!

I have neglected my blog … too busy sailing and having fun! We took 5 days to get to Palma with our lovely friends to help – Bill, Sheila, Laura & Rory. Our sail from Barcelona across to Soller (on the north coast of Mallorca) was due to take 14 hours but with force 6 winds, gusting up to force 7, we stormed across in 12 hours. What a day’s sailing … 3 – 5 m waves (seemed v big) and a good old soaking every now and again … can’t help but feel this trip might have been some preparation for our Atlantic crossing next year?

We’ve now been in Mallorca for a week. Our base is Palma where we have a berth for 3 months. We’ve been joined by my lovely friend Laura (H) for a few days and managed a day with Tom & Ash who are in Mallorca on holiday. Oh so lovely! We have plenty of guests coming to see us and hoping to meet other friends who are holidaying here for day sailing, cocktails and dinner. Palma is charming – what a lovely place to be. We’ve scooted around the city and already discovered new bays for sailing and swimming. We will venture further around the coast as the summer continues. Truly living the dream!!
