This morning we motored the 18nm from Tarifa to La Linea. La Linea is a Spanish town immediately north of the border with Gibraltar. We're currently anchored off La Linea's Alcaidesa marina.
And yes, that means we're in the Med! We've logged 1192nm in the 58 days since we departed Gosport and we're roughly halfway through our 90 Schengen days.

This morning we departed Tarifa at 0900 under an overcast sky. Visibility was a few miles and we could only just make out the mountainous Africa coast across the Strait. There was next to no wind so we motored all the way.

We expect to relax in the Gibraltar area for a week or so. Then we'll be heading east along the Spanish coast and ultimately towards Tunisia.
