La Coruna to Camarinas

When we got to La Coruna, riding a force 7 for the last hour we decide to stay for 4 days. We get 25% discount here with Cruising Association membership. Paula and Simon of Sylvana help us in and invite us to join them and the crew of  "A fine Balance" for drinks and a meal up the town.

Gavin and Heidi are sailing A fine Balance South - it is a lagoon 45, the flybridge version, superb boat, the size of 4 yachts, a veritable large appartment on the sea.

We split early from the party as Eileen and are have booked a scuba dive at 9am in the morning. Although I am a 4 star diver (BSAC 1st Class) it has been many years since I have had a proper dive so I need a good nights sleep. In the end the dive was lovely - 28 metres for 40 minutes. All my gear worked although I failed to get the camera to record - need to read more manuals!

We spend the next few days working at jobs around the boat and a bit of sightseeing -
