Inebriated Brits in Ibiza

On Wednesday we motored five hours to another Balearic island, Ibiza (pronounced eebeetha) and anchored in Cala Portinatx (x pronounced sh?) (27 ft, 39d06.62'N, 1d30.91'E). The islands here have many such Calas (small coves) indenting rocky cliff lined shores. Caves are a common feature along with beaches at the head of the cove. Cala Portinatx is a multi armed cove with hotels and roped off swimming beaches. It can get very crowded but we are now past high season and had only a half dozen yachts anchored or on moorings. The reported disco noise did not occur last night - another advantage of cruising later in the season.

Thursday we hiked the road around the bay catching glimpses of the yachts anchored and various beaches with sunbathers. That night we joined the scene ashore and had some drinks listening to a guitar duo/comedy act.

Friday had a chart marking session shareing info for places not yet visited with some cruisers in the anchorage. It was also time to inspect and lube (mainsail track) the rig.
