alfredjones88 is on a distinguished road
UK to Majorica

All of the above are excellent. The journey in May or June is really easy. Cross the Channel, spend the first night in France, sail to the Channel Islands, down the west coast of France, pull in at San Moritz, north coast of Spain, head for La Cederia, then down the Portugese coast to Lisbon. Not a very nice place, poor harbour, but one night to stock up is OK. Sail to the south coast of Portugal, really nice, the Algarve, good golf coursee, head for Gibraltar and spend as much time as you can. If you can stay in the destroyer pens, this is next to the town. The new marine is OK also. Head for the south of Spain and harbour hop until you get to where you can jump off for Ibitza, stay at El Tora marine and then head for Palma and find a place on the queside. Always room or drop the hook in the anchor. alfredjones88
