just did a crazy overnight sail from Post Balis/Barcelona  - 215nm in 30 hours to Port Javea just down from Valencia. started motoring/sailing into light head winds then it was supposed to be building wind from behind, but instead building from 20kn to be 30-40kn tight reaching for the last 8 hours, covered 100nm in 10 hours. except for the last 3 hours when we just wanted to get there and shelter was quite comfy in our fast cruiser, ended with 2 reefs in mainsail and half genoa furled.

on our way to Gibraltar now, down the spanish coast, should be there in about 2 days time. if the weaher holds, pick up some crew there and a few days later head off for the Canaries to meet up with some other kiwi families doing the same trip with kids also.
