Anyone for Spain ?

Now that the winter is setting in my thoughts are thinking about trips next year.

I putting a plan together for a trip down to the north coast of Spain mainly to take in the Bay of Biscay .

No duration has been set yet but legs of 200Nm will probably be what I'm looking at.

As far as a dates go probably June/July, but this is open.

If anyone is interested in maybe coming along drop me a Email and I'll keep you updated over the next few months. I guess that the trip is best suited to diesel boats but I'm happy to look for marina's that have petrol ( for the very rich ! ).

Regards

Mark

Yes, Mark, definitely.

The number of great opportunities is growing daily so it's going to be, I fear, a question of prioritising. But Spain really does appeal so I'll email you as suggested.

Hey Mark, couldn't get a reply from you to my email so I'll try this route. Is Spain still on?

C'mon guys. Fess up, what are your plans ?

Sounds really interesting. Won't be able to go for 47 different reasons (will I, dear) but I'd like to follow it over the ether.

It's Mark's itinery, Charles, but I'm sure he won't mind me answering.

We set off from Poole and St Mawes on 21 June to RV on the 22nd in Cameret. He plans to go via the CI to say to you, I believe.

We then bomb down to the Ile d'Yeu off the coast NW of les Sables-d'Olonne. (les Sables is the home the Vendee Globe Challenge non-stop single-handed-round-the-world race. It was in the 1996 running of the race from there that Pete Goss carried out his brave rescue of Raphael Dinelli. In the 2000 edition, also from there, that Ellen Macarthur delivered a result that made her a superstar).

From Ile d'Yeu we head for Arcachon a few miles SW of Bordeaux in the bottom right of the Bay of Biscay and then we cut off the corner and head for Gijon on the North coat of Spain.

A few jars there and then a 45 degree run across Biscay to la Rochelle where we RV with old mates of mine who, like Di and me, have hung up their sailing boots for the last time after 2+ circumnavigations. They give us a bath and plenty of vin plonk and then we head home.

I have absolutely no doubt that we will be even more knackered at the end of that little run than we would be if we combined the sore heads of the RIBnet Conf, Brian's Sarf West Bash and the Scillie's Cruise.

Just had an excellent rag 'n stick week to St Peter Port, Treguier & Paimpol, but what you guys are planning is SOMETHING ELSE.

I would love to do this one year. Please write it up after the event with full details of the legs, facilities, fuel availability, accomodation etc.

Voya Con Dios.


Brian


p.s. Alan, Brian, Gary, other BIBOA organisers - Has anybody considered Paimpol as a cruise destination ?

No chance! I'm a newbie and, besides, I don't do volunteering these days. Furthermore, Alan, Charles and Brian are all excellent leaders. I am just a follower.
