    Alucine | Sailboat ~ 12.2 m

    We needed to find a place to stay for a few days due to 40 knots of wind from NE. This was the perfect place, we anchored 100m or 200m from shore in 4-5m water and it held very well. Lots of place! The view is interesting, its a very dry place and is called the Almeria desert. There's a small town nearby but we didn't go.

    Great anchoring, very quiet at night and few boats. Small town with restaurants and a supermarket. Landing with a rubber dinghy is no problem. Slight swell, even with NE wind.

    Tolles Ankern, nachts sehr ruhig und wenig Boote. Kleine Stadt mit Restaurants und Supermarkt. Anlanden mit Schlauchboot kein Problem. Leichter Schwell, auch bei NO Wind.

    Good handling in 6 m of sand with 30 m of chain as a precaution, there was a lot of wind at the end of the night (20 knots from East and North-East), but comfortable, the water barely rippled, swimming a little sporty in the morning. At this anchorage we did not feel the gusts accelerated by the mountain, felt 3 miles further east: passing Cabo de Gata the night before the wind had changed from F4 to F5-6.

    Bonne tenue dans 6 m de sable avec 30 m de chaîne par précaution, il y avait beaucoup de vent en fin de nuit (20 noeuds d’Est et Nord-Est), mais confortable, l’eau à peine ridée, baignade un peu sportive le matin. Sur ce mouillage on n’a pas senti les rafales accélérées par la montagne ressenties 3 milles plus à l’Est : aupassage du Cabo de Gata la veille au soir le vent était passé de F4 à F5-6.
