We left Sant Miquel at lunch time on Sunday, and even after a detour to make water and charge the batteries we arrived in Portinax 3 hours later.    I tried out the new sail again on its own and it was giving us 4 knots in a 10 knot breeze, quite respectable.

Portinax is a larger Cala than Sant Miquel and has three beaches and hotels on each. The anchorage got busy during the day, not least with swarms of pedalos and paddle boards.   We went for a snorkel and had another BBQ dinner – loving the Cobb BBQ.

Our plan is to stay here until about 5 pm on Monday before setting off for Palma. It is about 60 miles and will take 14 odd hours and we will sail over night to arrive in daylight again.
