She’s almost ready! In this episode we paint and coppercoat Kittiwake. It was a great experience, which taught us a lot. We also hop in a cheap rental car and go visit some cruising friends up the Rio Guadiana. We ask them what’s it like to winter up there for free. This beautiful wild river
We take a quick sail to Lagos to go swimming, then we haul Kittiwake out, and start the big winter works. Elena takes you along on a typical day of hard work in the yard. We also included 2 minutes of clips from Italy at the end – some places were just too good to keep

After nearly smashing our boat into a catamaran at the local marina, we spent a few days relaxing in Ortigueira. We explored the stunning ria and the beautiful village. We were then ready to set off for Ares, where our friends Sofia and Jaime were waiting for us, to give us our brand new cruising chute.
Spending 24 hours sailing under spinnaker, through the Perseid meteor shower, and into a stunning ria in Northern Spain are some of our favourite memories from last summer. We hope we could capture how good this sail was in this video. We also ended up staying in a marina for free, which was great. We
After crossing the Bay of Biscay, we sailed westwards towards A Coruna. We did lots of day hops, stopping in Bilbao, Castro Urdiales, Laredo, Santander, and San Vicente de La Barquera. Although we felt progress was slow, with the wind always against us, we really enjoyed exploring this less known bit of Spain. We stopped
