Farewell to Mallorca

And so it was time to move on to the next leg of our trip.   We spent the morning of September 1st in Pollenca shopping before setting sail for Barcelona at 4 pm.   We had a 25 hour passage ahead of us based on 4 knots cruising speed but happily made more than that the whole way across.

We motor sailed out of Pollenca Bay and once we turned onto our course to Barcelona managed to get the Code Zero in use giving us up to 7 knots briefly before the wind died away to nothing.   We lowered the main sail and motored over night anticipating no wind at all and in the morning as the wind picked up we were sailing again under the main sail and Code Zero making well over 4 knots for most of the time arriving off Barcelona at just after 2 pm.
