On the 17 of March, we left la Corunya as the weather was finally good for our next leg towards  Camarinas. Unfortunately, we could not stay there as the northern wind made the mooring very  uncomfortable. We moved on the 19 of March towards Muxia located 2 miles away. We were the  only sail boat in Muxia  but it offered us excellent protection from the strong northerly winds  which blew at up to 49 knots (90km/h) one night. After one week, the low pressure area had  moved away allowing us to sail towards Portosin were a technician was  going to finalize the  connections of the newly purchased genset. We had no sun for the leg towards Portosin just a lot  of rain and fog. But the wind was very good and allowed us to use the sails and make good progress  with  speed up to  8 knots. On the way we were greeted by a large group of about 50 dolphins as  well as a replica of one of Columbus boat the Niña who moved without sails.
