... the swell pushed us onwards. As we surfed down one particularly large wave we hit 10 knots - the first time we've made it into double digits!

When we were perhaps five miles from San Vicente's entrance the wind began to pick up; when it reached 14 knots apparent we decided this was more than we should expect our spinnaker to put up with and pulled it down, sailing the last couple of miles under white ...

... again and we anchored in a little bay packed with yachts out for the day in bright sunshine.

It was another perfect day when we woke. Bread and Nutella for breakfast then we put our swimmers on and set off to enjoy the day. We walked the coast line, stopping at each little beach and headland to take photos and chill out with the other beach loving locals. There were dogs running around everywhere, topless and wrinkly, leather skinned old ladies sun baking, groups of people playing paddle ball, and picnics set up where large families were all gathered around gazebos ...
