Still raining when we woke again, it really is a depressing place this in the rain, but according to the never get it wrong weathermen tomorrow we can escape this place. We are Baiona'd out and will be so glad to move on, looking back we could have stayed in Combarro which was a lot nicer and cheaper - but hey ho, onwards and downwards. We filled the tanks, the passage plan is in place then it ...
... and tells you it sails fine close to the wind they're lying ! Cats do not go to wind that's for sure, downwind or on the beam and she's off like a racehorse - wind on the nose, stay put in port. Our next destination is 50 plus miles down the coast and I'm not doing that at 3 knots with 20 knot gusts all the way, No Para Mi Amigo. Novak and Camilla joined us for dinner ...

We popped across to see Novak and Camilla after breakfast, well it was more like brunch we didn't eat till about 10.30 after getting up late. They are still not back in the water yet but hopefully tomorrow they will be. We walked around the bay again today to the next little village which is about 4km away but there was not a lot there so we came back and went to the Virgin ...
... have a 16/17/16km three day run or we can simply do a 28/21 over two days. Weather forecast tomorrow is fine with a cold start (2 degrees) but no rain and overcast the next day and it is supposed to drizzle on Friday which is the planned day in. Decided it was a no brainer and we will do the two days and hit Santiago a day early. Just need to change the accommodation booking if we can. Such is the VDLP!
We will savour a vege soup for dinner after today's lunch. Real veges! ...
