Just a quick post to say we had a brilliant, fast sail to Marin yesterday and managed not to join the other yachts on the reefs in the bay. We anchored in 7 metres on sand at lunch time, went for a few swimming sessions to cool down and explored the town today.
Clearance was done in the office onsite at the marina using self-service terminals and the print out was stamped without any questions. We found the Wi-Fi down in both cafes but just picked up cable connection so am able to post a few photos.
Tonight we found a supermarket with dinghy dock and are having a BBQ on the boat once we finish in the internet cafe. Rob and Jack are getting used to the new car for going shopping and were pleased with the price of wine and selection of cheeses. We are definitely on a french island now, with lovely croissants and a real french feel to the area, plus of course another chance to bring out the basic french for their amusement.
I have become more used to going ashore and being comfortable about leaving the boat out of sight and sleeping soundly through the night and we know she is dug into good holding sand.
