Seasonal strong winds suggested it prudent to stop in Cartagena whilst strong headwinds abated. Nilaya arrived safely just after noon on Wednesday. Following one of Nuria’s legendary lunches, Ryan and the deck team adapted the existing boom fittings to enable use to use reef 2 again.

All the crew were satisfied with the jobs achieved. Visiting the historic Spanish Naval town of Cartagena was both a first for Nilaya and many of her crew. After work, the crew spread out and between explored. The open-air amphitheatre, naval museum which boasts a display of the first ever Spanish submarine, and a couple of the hills were duly explored. Most of the crew then took the opportunity to have dinner ashore and thoroughly enjoyed walking thorough the beautiful town centre.  JI
