I'm now able to attach logs of a couple of cruises undertaken on Rosinis during 2016 - to La Rochelle and back via the French coastal islands, and to Galicia.  Enjoy!

Early summer on the French Atlantic coast

Amongst bateas and horreos in the Rias Baixas

If anyone is interested, I shall be giving an illustrated talk on these two cruises at Marchwood Yacht Club (Southampton area) on Sat 18 Feb 17, starting at 2000.  If you'd like to attend please let me know in advance.
