A Coruña

Created: Tuesday, 28 August 2012

Today a finally went for A Coruña. A city which is rich in history and a famous place of arrival for sailors. I managed to leave the Bay of Biscay behind me well before autumn when (severe) gales are more frequent. In summertime, there is almost no such chance, according to the statistics. Now, I'm awaiting the northerly trade winds which prevail during summertime here at the Atlantic coast of the Iberian peninsula. These are very favorable conditions, the wind in the back.

I did some calculations: 1 050 nautical miles done, another 2 300 to Ziguinchor.
