    Any other funsters on it? We are very excited and a bit nervous, first trip to Spain in motorhome although we have travelled in France in the old van. Heading for Villasol first, we have 5 weeks as we are under strict instructions that we have to be home for Christmas. Trying to pack but also sorting son out for Tefl course in Madrid, he flies out thursday and we have the decorator in doing living room and stairs, not the best timing!

    We did that trip last December and are doing it again this Dec. It was fine. You board late, so have the whole of the next day to fill and so it can be a bit boring but you arrive early Tues morning which allows you to get well on your way in daylight.

    The Cap is a good boat, some reckon it's the best in rough weather, there's wifi and a good restaurant if you want a decent meal.

    Remember to keep your mobile on (BF should have your number) and if there's any problems with the sailing they'll text you. Enjoy.

    Crap Finistre no way near as good as the Pont Aven, that's my opinion anyway.

    We are coming back on the Pont Aven but deliberately chose the 2 night sailing on the way out as it arrives early morning. It's our first trip to Spain so were keen to get a good few hours driving done before it gets dark. If we can we'd like to get as far as Dinopolis on the first day so that we can arrive at Villasol by lunchtime on wednesday as it's the final day of a festival. It seems the fireworks are really good. Son has arrived safely in Madrid. Decorator finishes tomorrow so I have Saturday to get house sorted and van packed. Yippee.
