On Sunday afternoon we got an amazing sunshine for the last sailing of the season. The distance was only four nautical miles across the bay of Ría de Arousa from Caramiñal to the island of Illa de Arousa. We wanted
A Pobra do Camariñal part 1, 25.6. – 1.7.
We sailed from Sanxenxo in the beautiful sunshine 16 nautical miles north to the ría de Arousa. Suwena had a booking for a winter berth at the boatyard of Xufre on the island of Illa de Arousa. We had one
Sanxenxo 24.4. – 25.6.
On Sunday we departed from Combarro to Sanxenxo. The wind was perfect 12 to 14 knots from the west and we immediately hoisted the sails. At the end of the bay of Pontevedra the wind was directly from the nose
Combarro 21.6. – 24.6.
Combarro 21.6. – 24.6. Uncomfortable Atlantic swell in the anchorage of Islas Cíes made us rethink our Midsummer plans. Instead of trekking on the islands of Islas Cíes we sailed one ría north to the Ría de Pontevedra and to
