Good start to the day and set our course for Portugal stopping off for a lunch stop at Isla Cristina, which is a bustling fishing port and town. They have good facilities for the fleet; plenty space. They must have some sort of nautical college here as well because the free fall lifeboat training rig was on the quayside. It was a bit rough looking in places with neglect in the rubbish dept.

... was going to be weather bound again for his birthday but he wasn't. We took the dinghy to Tavira, approx 2 mile from where we had anchored and wandered around. A very pretty town with an great old town. One of the churches was very impressive, a blend of baroque and rennaisance styles – the tile work was just splendid –
