Mediterranean 2020

An online log of Atlantis' travels and adventures within the Mediterranean in 2020.

Into the Balearics

Posted by admin on August 1, 2020

We managed ourselves to get to Cala d’Hort in Ibiza with the only power of the sails. We could release the anchor and now we were safe. Time for an engine inspection. Andy realised it was due a contamination of the diesel. Perhaps the reason was not being able to start the engine during the lockdown months. With some spare diesel we could confirm that it was a problem of the fuel. The next step was finding a mechanic in Ibiza and somewhere to leave the boat for a couple of days. However this didn’t impede enjoying one of the most beautiful bays of Ibiza, with and incredible views of the sunset and Es Vedrà.

After getting some more fuel in , Andy could restart the engine, at least for a short period of time. With that we found ourselves on to the way of Sant Antoni de Portmany, one of the main three villages of the Island, and where a mechanic assist us to pump out the diesel (even though Andy make almost all of the hard work).

With the engine issue solved, we find ourselves with a week of time to discover Ibiza before heading to Palma de Mallorca, where we’ll meet Fiona the beginning of August.
