Arrived at the villa yesterday. It took 26.5 hours door to door to do 987 mile. We left Stoke at 0930 and were here by lunchtime. No bandits on route!

All trailers ran OK except a little smoke off a new trailer( not mine) as we dropped down from the mountains in central France. Two hold ups on the way M25 and an accident on a motorway in France. Generally a pretty good journey running through the night.

Off to the marina to launch later this morning. The trailers will be left in the garage by our villas so should be quite secure for the period. Click image for larger version

Lucky you. I go every year alone to Greece.
I have resign of some long trips because we are alone.

Is it some club or just coincidence that there are 3 Touaregs.
Almost 1000 miles is really long trip with trailer.
I make only 600-700 and longer distance go by ferry.

Have a good vacation and please make a lot of pictures.
Can you show on google.map where you are and what trips are you planning please ?

I know you can't get there by boat but if you get a chance you should have a walk around and a lunch in the old part of Girona. It's beautiful

Looks ok for the med I found early mornings or the evenings are best for flat.

But for RC585 there are perfect conditions.
Why do you expect flat ?
It is hot area so during the Summer thermal wind is normal here.

Yep without fail in Aug the wind will come up between 12 and 1. If you want to do water sports get out about 8am. It's usually flat calm. Or in the evening. If you are not antifouling expect some serious growth. Highly recommend a bit of a scrub while at anchor each day. Makes the cleanup much easier.
