Speedwell of Rhu Ship's Log

26 th of March 2018 - Sailing again

Crew : Helen and Andy
Destinations : Ria de Formosa.
Distance : 42 miles

We left our anchorage at 0925. We were able to sail close hauled making fairly good time for 3 hours until the wind disappeared completely. After a couple more hours the wind started to fill again and we tacked out to sea and then back in toward the entrance to the Ria Formosa near Faro, sailing for the rest for the trip and in to the harbour entrance. We had a huge area in which to drop the anchor opposite the lighthouse, ready to leave the following morning. It was a peaceful night despite the odd fishing boat or trip boat passing us.
