    Top mooring but not much water especially in VE. anchor at the edge of the channel opposite the museum. Leave a good space between the boats. We anchored it with Lucie and I think that the two of us occupied all the potential of the anchorage. For the annex, go up the douro keeping to the left, just after the police pontoon there is a small slipway in the middle of the water which does not seem to pose a problem. We are going to experiment with it in the next few days, I will post a comment if the plan posed a problem. The other anchorages in the area indicated on some maps seem impracticable to me.

    Top mouillage mais pas beaucoup d'eau surtout en VE. mouiller en bordure du chenal face au musée. Laisser un bon espace entre les bateaux. Nous avons mouillé la avec Lucie et je pense qu'à deux on occupait tout le potentiel du mouillage. Pour l'annexe remonter le douro en serrant a gauche, juste après le ponton de la police il y a une petite cale en pleine eau qui ne semble pas poser de pb. On va l'expérimenter ces prochains jours, je remettrai un comment si le plan posait pb. Les autre mouillages de la zone signalés sur certaines cartes me.semblent impraticables.

    Super anchorage in the heart of the city. Watch out for the current and the tidal range when dropping off the tender at a pontoon!

    Super mouillage au plein coeur de la ville. Attention au courant et au marnage quand vous déposez l annexe à un ponton!

    What a pleasure to anchor in the center of Porto. We were there in dead water so as not to have too much current. How cool it is to be able to enjoy the city without paying port!

    Quel plaisir de mouiller en plein centre de Porto. Nous y avons été en morte eau pour ne pas avoir trop de courant. Que c’est chouette de pouvoir profiter de la ville sans payer de port!
