We have had a fantastic couple of weeks cruising Ibiza island, the sun has shone and although the winds have been light most of the time we have still managed to sail around the island without too much of an agenda. Beautiful anchorages on the way and plenty of swimming and snorkelling.  We met up with our ARC+ crew mate Graham and his wife Sue and their friends Lu and Ley whilst they were on a short break to Ibiza.  We had a great night out together in Ibiza Town which was, for us country bumpkins, a real eye opener.  Getting back to the boat at 4am was also interesting as we had forgotten our torch and had a trek through the wooded dunes to get to the beach and then row out to Joy – rowing because the outboard motor has given up the ghost.  Anyway, exercise rowing won’t go amiss!  Graham very generously treated us to  a great lunch and afternoon at the Blue Marlin the following day which was a real treat and finished off our stay in Ibiza perfectly.  A chilled atmosphere, good food, good company and great people watching!  The wind picked up as the day went on and we sailed back to drop our friends back at the next cala before heading off for our night passage to Mallorca.  We had a brisk 18-20 knots of SW wind with 25+ forecast so we left Southern Ibiza that night to take advantage of this.
