April 2017

Another interesting day on a CBYA charter trip!


Last Monday, 24th April, the CBYA again had adequate crew to go on a charter day trip; we even had enough crew to ask for two 39ft boats! The crews met at their well-known place in the marina of Dénia, at the same time as normal – 10:00 hours. Looking at the weather conditions, we noted that the wind was light, but enough to sail, and we hoped that it would increase later in the day, as forecasted. The paperwork with the charter company was quickly completed, without problems as normal, and the skippers, Karlheinz Witte (me) and Peter English, boarded our respective boats. After a short and good introduction, given by Kiko, the manager of the charter company, we set off on our sail. read more →
