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.

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 –
