We rounded the lighthouse on the cape and then had a nice broad reach flying the asymmetric spinnaker along the west coast back up to Santa Ponsa. We had no dramas this time and were able to anchor in almost the exact spot we’d been only a few days before. It was as nice a day’s sailing as we could ever ask for and a real confidence builder handling the boat two up.

We arrived after many of the day boats had departed and dropped anchor right in close to one of the beaches. Yes OK. It was the nude beach packed with naked Spaniards of all ages, shapes and sizes but we chose it because it was the most protected from the wind and swell. Really!

mile clearance while naked by this stage. When in Spain do as the Spanish do.
