This journey was hardly a blue-water sailing adventure, but rather, an opportunity to race offshore past the magnificent Costas Brava and Dorada, see all of their lighthouses, mountains, beaches and ports from far out at sea, and to cruise inshore to explore whatever catches the eye.Cruising can be invigorating if you are planing a small sports cruiser offshore at twenty knots, and that is half the fun. Yet though you may be in sight of land you may also be a few miles out to sea, where breakdowns and squalls occur when least expected, particularly along this coastline, and beware of the tramontanas. So it is important for all skippers and their crews to be experienced in the arts of boat-handling, navigation and pilotage, before they embark on such adventures in these climes.
