For first time the VOR starts in Galiza -and I believe that in a Celt Nation- and precisely in my birthplace: Vigo

4 days to go...

I which to be there but since one year ago there is no way to find a mooring in any marina in bay or surrounding bays and, to avoid damaging the environment, they have banned mooring in the open.

I was thinking mooring on the Cies Islands (or Illas Ficas) or in front of Barra (Yes... still remain a lot of original Celt names...) , but...

Thanks for the site. I'm going to be following this. Closest they are coming to me is New York City so I'll just be content being a cyber-spectator.

Ta Keltic, no worries

(Christ! I didn't realize how many mistakes were in my opening post... I've forgotten to check it first, sorry)

If you open the second link, that is the place where I was thinking to moor, the Cies Islands, in the mouth of the bay. Is a Natural Reserve now but there is a camping and a naturist beach just behind the ferry quay that you can see in the center, next to a monolith and a bar/hotel.

Sandy beaches with sand like flour and thick pine forest that end in the edge of the beaches. Is the last paradise in the area. Barra -also naturist- used to be like that before the developments and is just a nautical mile from the quay to the right (Doesn't show in the picture). Too sad...

Since has been declared Natural Reserve, the few inhabitants have been evicted. There are the ruins of a convent burn down by Francis Drake, the corsair, with the monks inside... alive. (For the Saxons is Sir Francis Drake, but for us... well... it is not allowed to swear here).
