Palma day 3+4

E-mail Print PDF

We spent Wednesday on the water for 4 hours in no breeze and big swell! It was lovely. Thursday was breeze on with 14 to 25 knots from the SW to W. I had a 1,2 in some challenging waves and wind. Spending a lot of time looking for the marks. Even at the top of the wave you couldn't see the marks. Should be similar tomorrow so more fun again.

 

Day 1 in Palma

Princess Sofia regatta starts today. It should be good. We have 17 boats and a few fast ones at that. Today might be a bit light. forecasts are looking a bit rubbish but hopefully they improve and we get some sailing.

 

The wind was light. 5 to 8 knots out of the SSW. I got 2,2. It was ok although I was leading both races at one point or another so room for improvement tomorrow.

3,4. Not my best day sailing today, I made a few too many mistakes that I plan to rectify tomorrow. Should be more breeze and I plan to have more fun than I did today as sailing is meant to be fun

 

Arrived in palma

I arrived in Palma in Majorca today which is Monday after leaving on Friday night. The ferry from Pompy to Le Harve was a bit bouncy. The ferry fell off a few waves, then we found a very small village in the mountains about 3 hours north of Montpelier over night and had snow. We passed over the bridge in the sky Millau which was pretty cool. And then over night to Palma to the Real Club Nautico Palma which is a very nice  club in the centre of town. Where across the road is this boat Creole a 3 masted Schooner (A bit of boat porn) The largest wood sailing yacht in history.. Not forgetting a pre war 12m being restored. So having lots of fun. Back to the day job! I have half rigged my 2.4 and will put in on the water tomorrow but it night be too breezy so will have to wait until Wednesday for a sail.
