May, 2017 - BENALMADENA, SPAIN

We enjoy a downwind sail, using foresail only to Benalmadena.  The marina staff very very slow to arrive at our dock.  After we made several passes, we received help from our dock neighbors to do our first Med tie.  We can only do it "bow first" due to our full keel (poor control in reverse), canoe stern and wind steering off the back.  This means we have to drop to the dock off the bowsprit.







May, 2017 - FUENGIROLA ANCHORAGE

We say goodby to the "Rock" and enjoy a good sail to Marbella Yacht Harbor.  It was a very tight harbor, with no room to maneuver and a cross wind of about 15 knots.  Any increase in the wind would make it impossible to leave.  Also, it would be our first Med tie.  We decide to go to the nearby anchorage at Fuengirola.
