After leaving Rota marina we spent a day in the bay outside and stopped overnight too.  Then we had another day relaxing on board, catching up with sleep and chilling out after so much excitement.

Our peace and quiet of the bay was once again disturbed by an inconsiderate jet skier. Everyone else was out enjoying their Sunday either on the water or the beach in peace and quiet until the jet skier arrived.  Steve was resting below so I decided to have my first swim from the boat.  It wasn't cold but not warm either...just really cooling to be in the water after the hot sun.  I was on my second dip when Steve decided to come in too....but then he had to don the mask to go and check on the anode before swimming.  For those interested it had gone!

After our refreshing swim we decided to head to Puerto Sherry for another anchorage.  I was beginning to feel sick again after the rocking about and looking at the almanac Steve thought the anchorage at Puerto Sherry would be calmer. It was only 5nm away into the Bay of Cadiz.  We could actually see Cadiz across the water or rather the huge port there.  So we upped anchor and went over to Puerto Sherry and stopped by the marina in a small bay for the night.  Our plan was to catch the ferry across to Cadiz the next morning.

Steve on

I am not the controlling captain that the PS my suggest, I just think that Jilly is making such a good job of the blog that I have little to add so will just confine myself to be her info checker. By the way the spinniker pole repair was a rebuild of the remaining pieces and we now have a pole 3' shorter that will work for the Genoa only, need a review for the spinniker, may be the remaining piece may make a bow sprit. Sorry for this to the none sailers out there. All the other little jobs are just sent to try us and just part of sailing!

Love reading your blogs - whoever is the writer doesn't matter, its really interesting. Only thing we have in common with you at the moment is the fact that Rosie and I and a few others were down the beach yesterday and we too enjoyed a swim and the water was lovely not cold at all
