In the local regional paper here in Galicia there is an article about a retired English couple who are savouring the delights of the Galician coast.They brought the Wayfarer type dinghy over on a trailer to Santander and have sailed along the coast.Every so often they move their car and trailer along the coast.Apparently the locals look on with awe at how people can live in such a small boat....... they don't know the mad English.Anyway while Spain suffers a heat wave an open boat is ok .

Way back when you could go to Cherbourg and bring back duty frees, I met a couple in their 50's in the shop by the lifting bridge, arguing with the proprietor. He didn't believe they's sailed their Wayfarer from Eastbourne and were going on to the Chanel Islands and wouldn't give them any DFs. We added them to our crew list, had their stuff delivered to our boat in the Marina and sent them on their way rejoicing. Not my idea of cruising. I like the ability to go to the bog or have a cuppa without landing on a beach somewhere and hunting for a loo, but whatever floats your boat, I suppose. I have an acquaintance with a Drascombe Lugger who towed it to the Gulf of Morbihan a couple of years ago and spend nearly a month there.
