Alghero is a few ship chandlers and yacht service companies. We need to replace our gas bottles, two are empty. So go ahead and search for replacement bottles. The first yacht service offers us a bottle for 20 euros. The two Italians call (presumably with her boss) and we get very little of what is being said, at least give us a new one - brought looking bottle, which seems to be empty in weight. We say the two "is empty"! NO NO say the two but the bottle is empty, so € 20 for a blank is indeed what. We let it go and make our way to the nearest dealer. Has a new, with seal, then for 24 €, which are still too much, two blocks away, we find a new, with sealed for 22 €, which we take with. ( http://www.campingaz.com )

After two days, we go to Alghero. Klaus and Angela have their return flight from here, for 35 euro / person with Ryanair. Well a couple of days we stay here, and what worked up. The anchorage outside the harbor front is good, and you can watch the evening and the yacht catcher, like trying to pull ships on land (to make cash on the ships). It's almost like the Caribbean, but here in the Mediterranean actually worse. In Alghero place we find a laundromat, and we start with the wash. With a folding sack barrow we make with pockets on the way. The washing machines are good, Miele Professional, and so the idea comes to us, even to wash all linens times. So, at first from the headsail which are made clear to the fastest and into the washing machine, and the result is great. The following day we build most of the running rigging from (linen) and wash everything. In order to expand the line of rolling mainsail, one has to expand the role of the mast, no big deal, but so does the furler is equal mitgewartet, greased and cleaned. After everything together again makes the cleaning felt good, everything is much easier.

So early in the morning only some fishermen are out and we drop our anchor at ß9ßß clock in the small bay of Bosa, after 49 hours driving from Menorca.

Minorca - Spain to Sardinia - Italy More

In the morning we start to Sardinia. Before us lie 200 nautical miles depending on the wind and ride around the 2 days. At the beginning of the journey we have some wind from the front, but what should be changed according to the prediction in a few hours to half wind. After 25 nm or 5-6 hours later, we see a big freighter slightly north, has directed its cranes to off-shelf! We can thus not explain what this is, and watch the freighters with binoculars. It also seems the closer we get to the freighter first, but then the changes course and back away from us. All a bit weird. Short time later, the explanation is this: We drive through an area with mountains of garbage, Plastikmull all sorts, bags, bottles, boxes, tarps, small parts and much more. With so much trash we could not even run the machine that would suck in the garbage. Not to mention the now getting stranded plastic neatly in Menorca and Mallorca from the fish and birds. The freighter was / is a garbage disposer. And it was only about 50 km from Spain, hard to believe.

We are in the morning in the cockpit, there is a boat harbor master and gives us the handout and says in one that is no longer allowed to anchor all vessels here, and again only allowed to be anchored if all marinas are full!

By car, we will look at the north side of the island of Mallorca and thus make a tour through the mountains. Although no vacation time, it is a lot of car traffic in the mountains and valleys in the north of Mallorca. Masses of tourists are transported by buses, we'll see you at the times, in Sa Calobra, and then we head to Port de Sóller. In Port de Sóller some yachts are moored even if the anchor field looks quite small and it is also quite full. On the return trip in the northeast of the island we visit shortly Christa and Helmut, who have the flight back to Germany the following day. We go shopping yet what to completion. The following morning we still use the Autio and drive in the extreme northeastern tip of Mallorca, in the Cap Formentor. The road is narrow and amounts of cars on the road again. Before the lighthouse it is downright to jam! At the lighthouse itself, which is about 350 m above sea level, the view is impressive. In the afternoon we bring the car and get ready for the departure.
