When we were invited by my father to sail a week in northern Spain, we jumped on the offer.
We flew to Bilbao from Stockholm and got on the boat. An Allures 45 from 2016, a magnificent ship, named Chimera.
We had a last minute cancelation of our flight, which I allmost missed since it was sent as an e-mail. But I quickly called the KLM servicedesk and before we knew it we were on our way to the airport to catch a flight that departed two hours earlier than our original flight. This also ment that we would arrive two hours earlier and not have to get a TAXI from the airport at eleven o’klock at night.
The first night was no problem, we both fell asleep right away and woke up to a cute litte marina overlooking a beach and the city. The “bridge” you see named Vizcaya Bridge is rather different than most bridges and uses a gondola-type platform that goes from side to side.
We had lunch at a local restaurant that had a good vibe.
But we started off towards Castro Urdiales, a quaint little medieval village.
Sailing from Bilbao to Castro Urdiales was easy as there was only a little wind, which also means smaller waves, and we even needed to motor a bit. But since Hanna and I had not aquired our sea legs yet, we didn’t mind.
The girls cool down in the bay of Castro Urdiales where we ancored for the night.
Back in Bilbao and on our way back to Stockholm.
