Santiago de Compostela is Galicia’s most famous city and one of the world’s biggest international pilgrimage destinations, but Galicia or terra de meigas (land of witches) have a lot of other things to offer.Like for example, the magnificent rías that are spread out along the  1 600 km long coast.  A ria is a drowned river valley that remains open […]

4-6 aug Over the Bay of Biscay to Spain!

Posted on

After a few days on Belle Ile a weather window appeared that would make it possible for us to cross over the notorious Biscaye Bay. You need about 5 days of fair winds to cross over, or so the say. So we prepared the boat for a longer trip. Checked the engine, the mast, the […]

30 July-4 Aug From L’Aber Wrac’h to Belle Ile

We had to pass “Chenal Du Four”, a piece of water which can be a bit tricky because of the current and the razorlike cliffs!So the time to leave L’Aber Wrac’h was decided by the tide. The passage went well and soon we were in Camaret-sur-Mer (Kameled in Breton) It’s lovely little town about 80 […]

After the maiden trip

Our stay in Kalmar is nice but also hard work. We went to Kalmar to meet with Judy and Jonatan but it is also a good place for maintenance. When the boat went into the water there were still things left to do. We decided to make the boat livable and sailable and to do […]
