As we expected 2 days ago the weather on down the track from Cape Palos to Cabo De Gata to Gibraltar is not great. 25 to 30 with higher gusts to the high 30's..So after a few Gale warnings on the radio we have pulled in to a slip here in Cartagena. We hope to get going again on Saturday Morning/lunch time ahead of an Easterly Gale!! At least it will be behind us. Once in and safely tied up we checked our bottom and our rigs both of whom have recently had a lot of Work. The rigs checked out nicely. If you look at the photo closely you will see the new Sailing yacht A in the background.
