We arrived after speeding down from Porto. High waves was a feature. We used AIS to avoid a larger cargo vessel called CLARA K. We were in radio contact.
The Marina is a little expensive but gets less as we are staying 4 nights to avoid Atlantic winds. The staff are nice – Carlo at nights and Mirguel during the days are very helpful.
We went by train to Coimbra which is an ancient university town. The train was cheap, 10.60 euros for 2 return and the journey is an hour each way! The town has small streets, shops and interesting buildings. It also has a botanical garden.
