Moved to Aveiro today. No real wind, so motored with the jib out. It gave me an extra knot or so... saw more dolphins than you could shake a stick at, the are definitely not an endangered species around here!
Coming into the river with the tide was fun, I was doing 8Kts in an instant. There was a dredger to avoid, and there seemed to be hundreds of people fishing in small motor boats. This was surprising as the river mouth is marked as a no fishing zone.
The anchorage is shallow and I had no water under the keel on a couple of occasions (according to the instruments) but didn’t manage to run aground. The tide was rising, so it would have been recoverable if I had.
Anyway, I’m here now. I’ll get out the tender tomorrow and go shopping.
