Delayed in the boatyard - Who'd have guessed

March 21 – 2013

Well we were supposed to be going back in the water tomorrow (Friday) but the boatyard have informed us they're running behind and of course they don't work Saturdays. It will now be Monday, hopefully, that Alcheringa will be eased back into the wet stuff with pretty new antifouling covering her bum, her hull polished all shiny, a new AIS system installed and even her recalcitrant, seized through hull valve replaced.
Alcheringa looks like a bathtub toy suspended under the huge travel lift at Ceuta more
accustomed to lifting giant mega-yachts out of the water

In the meantime we've enjoyed a three day trip across the border in Morocco which has been awesome. We're heading back to Ceuta tomorrow and, with a bit of luck, will find time over the weekend to post a full chapter about our visit to beautiful Chefchaouen high up in the mountains. It has been awesome.

We'll update you about our awesome side-trip into Morocco soon

We’re chomping at the bit to start working our way east along the Spanish Coast and really get our 2013 cruising adventures underway. The next two days will be a bit frustrating sitting in a hostel room across the road from the harbour looking at our yacht locked up in the boatyard with nothing happening on it but such is life.
