... preparing the head sail under power. It started quite nice at midday with the full main beam reaching out of the bay then just before I had the angle to pass the cape, heavy swells with strong gust made me hold action.

Asturias; Part 1: 4 Night Stay
After San Sebastian, we drove to Arriondas, which was quite a small town in the region of Asturias. The day we arrived in Arriondas there was a big canoeing festival, which we hadn’t known about when we’d come.

The town itself was fairly modern, with a few hidden gems.
A most pleasant stay.
