    Infinitely better anchorage than at the river mouth. Good holding, there is still a current and tidal difference but nothing compared to the river mouth. It’s worth doing the extra milage for a goodnight sleep. Also a fantastic location for seeing Porto which is also worth the effort.

    Moored along the quay of the old town. Fabulous ! Come and moor at high tide. Just 2 or 3 places. Free and possibility to visit the monuments on foot. Delicious restaurants. Small terrace bar. It's good to stop in Porto. Assured crush.

    Amarrés le long du quai de la vieille ville. Fabuleux ! Venir s’amarrer à marée haute. Juste 2 ou 3 places. Gratuit et possibilité de visiter les monuments à pieds. Délicieux restaurants. Petits bar en terrasse. Il fait bon s’arrêter à Porto. Coup de cœur assuré.

    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.
