2018-08-17 Cala de San Vicent, Ibiza, Islas Baleares, Spain This morning we wake up to a cooler, slightly breezy and overcast day Several other boats join us in the reasonably sheltered bay The wind gusts from the north increase as the day goes by A catamaran attempts to anchor however it continually drags it’s anchor Again another heavy thunderstorm begins Visibility became very poor!! A red steel yacht anchored in front of us starts dragging it’s anchor. Despite trying in vain with shouting and blowing our boat horn, we could not rouse the occupants from below deck until it was beside another yacht anchored behind us The two yachts were now side by side!! With the rain coming down in buckets and the wind blowing a gale, the two yachts had their anchors entwined With many attempts in the awful conditions they tried to free their anchors and pull up their chains Still no success after an hour of attempts!! Finally they were free and the steel boat headed out of the bay The heavy rain continued and we found a few leaks in the Tangaroa that we did not know we had!! By 6 pm the storm had passed and once again the sun tried to make an appearance over the bay Our French neighbours who narrowly missed major damage to their yacht during the day, decide to finally move on Looking out into the distance towards Illa Tagomago with another boat approaching Cala de Sant Vicent With all the dramas of the day, we spend another night in the now peaceful bay Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
