Do you have air conditioning on your boat ....was 32 degrees celcius in June when I was in Alicante ....too hot ...my friends just back from Alicante last week and said it was 37degrees! Most uncomfortable in a marina ..is it any better anchored off? Want to bring my boat over to the Costa Brava in 2 years time but have to figure out how to keep cool and how to keep the mosquitoes at bay! All advice welcome!
Thanks for welcome. Will have some photos soon. Trying to get steering wheel locks. Beneteau stopped fitting 6 months ago. Goiot make steering---which there is excessive play in port wheel--on the list--and refuse to reply to email. Assume they are holiday like rest of France.
It is Friday night, June 11th, & we are thinking about you! We are wondering where you are? We are sailing as a fleet into the New York Harbor to your home port tomorrow morning & we are wishing that you were going to be there! ; ) xox
