A weekend in Morocco
The Rally fleet sailed to Smir, 30 miles away, in Morocco for an overnight stay.  There we were met by a camel outside customs clearance (!).  Later a coach trip left for the old 'medina' or walled market in Tetouan, a city of 600,000 people; what a fantastic place!  Supper was taken in the medina after a long walking tour.

The following day the fleet had a great sail to windward in a force 6 back to Gib, a superb way to clear the cobwebs!
