Living at anchor in the rain-11/13/22

After being in the yard for a week, we were ready to do some anchoring. Some nasty southerlies were coming in, and we had to find an anchorage to keep us safe. Luckily, a beautiful anchorage was at the top of the Ria de Vigo. It was nice being stuck in the boat, hiding from the rain and wind for a bit. For most of the week, it was only us and one other sailboat. The anchorage was surrounded by a curtain of trees and train tracks where if we got up early enough, we could hear it blowing its horn as it crossed a bridge.

It was also an excellent opportunity to put our power, energy consumption, and use to the test. As Mads explains in the video, with all the rain, we got a good idea of our needs and how far we could stretch our power. We are looking forward to warmer climates and the sun to see what our solar panels can do.
