Beautiful sailing this week in The Bay Of Rosas to the north of Barcelona with excellent winds and clear blue sky. Tessa and her friends all successfully completed their RYA Competent Crew Courses (top left) and found some excellent restaurants for their evenings ashore. A particular favourite in Palamos was La Gamba. Nick and Adriana joined our rolling Fast Track Yachtmaster program, Cliodhna and Eoghan arrived for RYA Courses. A special well done to Abdrazack who completed his 14 day RYA Day Skipper Fast Track Course and to Andres who finishes his on Sunday. Good luck with the final theory assessments.
