Teulera Anchorage, Mahón, Minorca

We entered the port of Mahón around 11PM after 65 hours sailing/motoring from Isla Marettimo. Our passage took us within 15nm of Sardinia, but we elected to push on given the excellent weather and nearly full moon.

The anchorage at Teulera is crowded, but secure and serene. We anchored just inside, probably encroaching into the channel and went to sleep. Next morning we re-anchored on the northern edge where we stayed for another two nights.

We made the trek to Mahón in the dinghy. Fortunately conditions were favourable and we got the Zodiac on the plane with the 5hp Black Death! We had, of course, not factored in the Siesta, and arrived in town at 2PM to find everything shut.

Eventually, at 4:30 we managed to procure a 140GB pre-paid SIM from a very friendly chap at Movistar, but not before we had a couple of cerveza Estrella, only to pass the time, you see.

We had a bit of time to walk around Mahón. It is a beautiful old city but in excellent state. Thought one would be happy living here!
