Leaving Ceuta we had a shorter sail day with Gibraltar as
our final stop on this leg.
Even though it would only take us 3 ½ hours to sail again we were faced with large swells
and MANY freighters and barges to avoid.
The Bay of Gibraltar is littered with ships waiting to come in or go out
and on first and second glance is very commercial. We found Queensway Quay, our marina and after
calling them on VHF, were directed to our berth we would maintain for the next
16 days. Niki and John left the
following day (Saturday) and Ron stayed through Monday, Oct 3rd,
giving him a brief opportunity to check out Gibraltar. (I think he did some power shopping there!)
