Before heading to Spain we make only two nice stops, because the weather forecast shows some negative development. Fact is: we don’t want to be within the Gulf of Lion if a bad weather is approaching.
As the coast in direction of Barcelona doesn’t provide nice anchorages, we decide to sail back to Mallorca. September should be already rather quiet and we have enough time left before heading into our winter camp.
On September 19 the wind looks good, thus we sail off, starting in the nice Cala Guillola at the Capo Creus.
After nearly 30 hours and 147 nm (= 272 km) we drop our anchor at Punta del Ravell, – our preferred anchorage next to Port de Pollenca.
The sail was rather quiet and we didn’t use the engine much. A pleasant surprise is that the water and air temperature are much warmer. Within the Gulf of Lion it was already rather fresh.
We enjoy the nice Port Pollenca and even find a bit ‚Swissness‘:
After a couple of quiet days we decide to move on to Cala Molto, which is a lovely bay in the northeast of Mallorca. On our way we catch a tasty Mahi Mahi, – the first catch of the season.
A big surprise are the other two boats with a Swiss flag in the bay. Most certainly we have some small talk and drinks together.
Next day the northeast wind gets rather strong and we sail back to the well protected bay of Pollenca, – as usual it’s pleasantly calm. The following day we sail on to Portocristo, where we want to stay for 1-2 nights.
While being in Portocristo we can properly clean and wash everything. As a reward we go to our most preferred Restaurant ‘Roland’, – it was excellent as usual..
With the southerly we fly back to the beautiful Cala Molto. Although it’s Sunday it’s rather quiet in the bay, – the main season is clearly at its end.
See u soon!
