After 5 years of heading this way and after 85 different beds along the way we finally moved into our Ribadeo flat this week. We hope this will be for a long time. In reality it will be only 11 months until the family want it back for their holidays but we are getting so good at packing and unpacking that maybe we can do this every August, let's face it students do it every year. Both Andrew and Donald also moved this month - what a tribe of gypsies we have become!

Had a wee sail today and noticed the rescue helicopter hovering and the police launch following. It got pretty rough so we came back into port to be asked (All in Spanish of course) if they had found the boat or the body. We had to admit we had seen nothing but the continued search went on all afternoon, and we understand from the press it has resumed today. Quite chilling to be in the midst of such drama and feel so unable to help. They are looking for a 23 year old who was to taking part in a kayak regatta. So many youngsters race canoes here but this guy did not finish. We hope they find him alive even if they find him at a friends playing computer games unaware of the drama
