Had a great time sailing off the coast of Spain. We flew to Barcelona and joined the boat at Arenys de Mar and sailed up to Puerto d’ Aro, stopping on the way at Blanes, and back again. This is me reefing in the furling mainsail under the eye of the skipper. The wind was sufficient most days, too much on occasions and the sun was out nearly every day.
Of course it was not all hard work at the helm! There are the sun downers in the evening and good restaurants ashore. We all had lunch on the last day at a hotel called “Cal Batlle” in Saint Celoni. I recommend it unreservedly.
If you want a few days of pure relaxation at a private hotel you must go. You can have a virtual tour of it here
