On Friday the ARC Portugal fleet gathered at Monte Real Club De Yates where they enjoyed sangria and snacks on their terrace that overlooks the marina. Andrew Bishop said a few words to welcome the fleet and thank our host marina. Participants caught up with the last two arrivals Serifina and Chimichanga, who arrived in the early hours of Friday morning. As the sun started to set participants walked into town to El Tunel restaurant where they had a typical Spanish dinner of local tapas, fish and meat. The rally then headed back to the marina for a pontoon party.
On Saturday morning a bus departed from the marina for an all day tour of Santiago de Compostela. The fleet split into two groups and local guides Patricia and Maria guided them around the historic Cathederal de Santiago, Museums, and plazas. After the tour, participants had the chance to roam around the streets and sample the delights of the many tapas bars.
