    Anchorage subject to strong gusts. However the sandy bottom is very good grip. We spent the night with 1 meter of water under the keel and gusts to 30 knots without moving. The place is pretty. With easterly winds the area provides good shelter, especially since there are not many other possibilities in the area.

    Mouillage sujet à de fortes rafales. Cependant le fond de sable est de très bonne accroche. Nous avons passé la nuit avec 1 mètre d’eau sous la quille et des rafales à 30 nœuds sans bouger. L’endroit est joli. Par vent d’Est l’endroit constitue un bon abri, d’autant plus qu’il n’y a pas beaucoup d’autres possibilités dans le secteur.

    Anchoring to avoid with strong Levante since there is an effect of acceleration of the wind in the mountains producing strong gusts of wind. We anchor only a few hours. We went from 11 knots to 35 knots in a matter of seconds. We decided to move and anchor in front of the town of Cabo de Gata and El Torreón. Much more comfortable and with less gusts of wind.

    Fondeo a evitar con fuerte Levante ya que se produce un efecto de aceleración del viento en las montañas produciendo fuertes ráfagas de viento. Nosotros fondeamos solo unas horas. Pasábamos de 11nudos a 35nudos en cuestión de segundos. Decidimos movernos y fondear frente al pueblo de Cabo de Gata y el Torreón. Mucho más cómodo y con menos ráfagas de viento.
