Having waited in Ayamonte for a much promised delivery of cushions, Gondo and I sailed J-L overnight round into the Mediterrainean and moored in La Duquesa marina, just one hundred metres from the dreadful Angie Unwin’s workshop, and the source of our no-cushion troubles.
Webasto had returned the heater, with instructions on recommended changes, on Friday , so J-L was made independent again over the weekend, Further so, as I took the opportunity to fit a couple more solar panels to keep the batteries topped up when at anchor.
Ironic then, that our first trip was into another full service marina. Typically, a “pack them in and charge them high” mentality of Med marinas, this one uses lazy line mooring, alias shit-tie mooring. One more reason for my not liking sailing in the Med.
Tired from our overnight sailing endeavours, a couple of beers and a mexican meal was enough to have us asleep by mid-afternoon. Tomorrow the battle of the cushions will be joined.
