Hi guys

Just to let you know we continued our meandring south, this time sailing fram Spain and south to Portugal. No wind so motor all the way.

On concern was fuel consumption. We used 10 liter pr. hour at 2000 rpm and 7 knots. The boat has not been hauled for two years so I guess I have a job to do...

Cheers

Although the boat has a size, there is always a bigger one

This from our new "home port"

Cheers

Thanks for the further feedback, especially on the speeds and times as that will help me planning my trip.

You have a bigger boat than me yet you say the cruising speed is around 6 knots, which is about the same as I usually sail or motor at, so i am confused on this aspect.

Great pictures
Cheers,

Hi Rob,

The cruising speed with the boat using the engine is about 8 knots at 2300 rpm. On this latest leg of the journey, I choose 7 knots to fit with departing/arrival time – but the fuel consumption was way to high.
Now, sailing is another issue, but with no wind the alternative was rowing



Cheers

I understand your comments here only to well as a couple of weeks ago my engine overheated as a result of something blocking the water intake on the saildrive. With no wind and being in the Solent just off Cowes I had to anchor quickly and resolve the problem, or the alternative as you suggest would have been rowing. I jury rigged the engine feed from the galley intake to get me home but have not been able to clear the blockage. Food for thought on your extended voyage, as the galley pipe to the engine water pump just about reach end to end and gaffer tape seals the joint?


Cheers,

Hi you all,

On our meandering south, we are contemplating leaving the boat for this upcoming winter in Spain. Do you guys have any advice for to a good “home” between Gilbraltar and Alicant?

Cheers

Hi,

I've just returned from the area between Alicante and La Manga and have been looking for a marina in that area to where I can sail either later this year or early next and leave BH there for a year or two. There are a couple of Marinas that look good dependent on what you want from them and the size of your boat. Club Nautico Dehesa De Campoamor looks very good and would be my choice but currently they are unable to get me in as I draw 1.9M. The entrance is only around 1.6M but being dredged, as we speak to around 2M and the max length is 12M, so dependent on your size maybe worth a call. The main marina in Torrevieja looks good with easy access and offered me a mooring whilst I was there at a very good yearly rate and it is right in the town centre. The other option that looked good but I was unable to discuss any offering as they were closed on the Sunday I arrived is Santa Polo. This is a very big Port and appeared to have quite a few empty berths, it is also in the centre of town and all are relatively close to either Alicante or Mucia airport.

I Hope this helps and good luck with sorting something out.
Cheers,

Rob

Hi all,

I thought I would update you on the last endeavors with our sailing south. We ended up spending the winter in La Linea, just across the border from Gibraltar.

On the way down here, we had lots of technical issues; water in the diesel resulting in broken diesel pump, injectors etc., then we had fishing nets in the bow propeller and finally a damaged main sail. Except that, we had many good experiences

Now we are looking forward to a new season but before that we had her lifted three years since, and done all the underwater maintenance (changing all the through hulls, zinc, antifouling etc.) and polish the hull.

Cheers
