3. La Coruna, Spain to Lisbon, Portugal

15/06/2017 @ 08:00 – 24/06/2017 @ 20:00

The North West corner of Spain (between Ribadeo and Bayona), is Galicia, a wonderful cruising ground (8/10) comprising about 180nm of granite coastline deeply indented with steep sided ‘Rias’, each just a day sail from the next.

Distance: about 360 miles
Hazards: Rapidly changing weather, frequent fog, the swell – long, high waves, tides, strong west wind makes entrance into some rivers and marina dangerous or impossible
Highlights: Galician Rias, Cape Finisterre, Lisbon

If we have a good weather I’d like to spend a couple of days exploring Galician Rias – three big rivers north of La Coruna with a lot of nice anchorages, small marinas and fishing ports. After that we will need to make two overnight legs over 120-130 miles each or one 40 hours leg covering 250 miles.
