Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Marinas in Spain

Howard Berger

Though it's not in Spain, the Lagos Marina in the Portuguese Algarve is a great place to safely leave your boat. We sailed there in the summer of 2000 and noticed that many Europeans and especially Brits kept their vessels there while they were away elsewhere. The Chipione Marina on the south of Spain, though small, is also attractive and at the time was very inexpensive (of course the dollar was a LOT stronger then).

Good luck and enjoy your trip. Horta in the Azores is still one of my best remembered landfalls. Be sure to bring along some paint and brushes to paint your names on the Mole there and do stop in to Peter's Cafe Sport, one of the coolest yachtie hangouts in all of sailingdom.

We are making our first crossing May 1 in our 1985 Maramu. We hope to
end up in Spain sometime in Aug. after a while in the Azores. We
would appreciate any info on marinas for next winter. Not too
expensive where we can leave the boat safely while we travel inland.
Can anyone help us out?
Also if anyone with Med. experience would like to give us any helpful
information we would like to set up direct email so we can ask a lot
of questions.
We just retired, so will spend as long as we like the sailing and
traveling there. All the way to Turkey.
