About 5 hours from Ribadeo is the lovery anchorage of Viveiro, it does have a Marina, but now that we’re heading to Spanish Ria country there really isn’t any necessity to use them so much, as these Rias, (huge coastal/inland lakes connected to the sea) are some of the most beautiful anchorages in the Med/Europe.

Football might be coming home, but we’re not, tomorrow we’re off to Cederia another cracking anchorage we discovered when we visited April and Cain of Spirit of Argo when they set off on their journey around the world. They have just reached the Marquesas after an epic crossing of the Pacific – well done guys we miss you loads xx
