VIA CON ME - Mallorca and Ibiza 2012

From Mallorca I went with some guests to Ibiza. If you like to mooring in the bay of Espalmador/Formentera, you have to book in advance a buoy. Follow the instruction from ([lang]=ale).
The webpage is in Spanish, English, German and French.
Ibiza is a wonderful place and has kept his original charmed landscape. Still they have trees left, not so in Mallorca. A lot of forest has gone, because of the touris and also affected of fire. The whole coast from Ibiza has beautiful bays where you can anchoring free. This is what we have done. Palma de Mallorca is also a sightseeing worth.
So we enjoy the stay here in one of the bays. Sometimes together with other sailors, sometime alone.
Beside sailing around, I prepare the inventory for the ARC 2012. It is important, to know what we have on board, what we should take with us, what kind of spare parts or gas bottles we should carrying with us etc. For example, the camping gas you get in Martinique and also in St. Lucia, not so on other islands. With 4 bottles I had enough gas from St. Lucia over Caicos/Turks to the Acores. This time, I take one more with me, because I like to bake sometimes fresh bread...
Rodney Bay in St. Lucia has good maintenance and facilities, boatyard etc., also Le Marin and Siint Maarten. But be sure you have some spare parts with you. For e.g. if you have a Volvo Penta Engine take oil filter etc. with you. A very good mechanic is Egbert Charles in Rodney Bay. On other places *if not Siint Maarten or Grenada* you will find mechanic companies but not the spare parts...
