A Big Set Back for the CBYA Dinghies!!


We are very sad to report that we have been ‘broken into’ at El Portet, and our outboard motor has been stolen. In addition the aft locker on the new “Flying Fish” dinghy has had its lid torn off, and our life jackets which were stowed in there have also been taken! They also stole the Flying Fish trailer wheels, and its mainsheet. We are obviously being targeted because they have now also stolen our old rubber dinghy safety boat, as well as the rubber dinghy and cover which was chained up close to our storage box!

A Fun TOMs Cruise & Raft-up!


When I agreed to go sailing a couple of months ago, I obviously was not thinking straight. I’m not a good swimmer, I hate deep water and I get seasick! The closer the day got, the more apprehensive I became.

The day arrived, a glorious one at that, and my husband, John and I walked to the Real Club Naútico de Calpe. Everyone was friendly and welcoming, a good start. John and I were put on a TOM skippered by Dave, with experienced crew member José. Everything seemed so complicated –  I wondered what I’d let myself in for! read more →
