Moonlight ride

Saturday June 26th, we enjoyed a full moon night, calm seas and mild weather. A bunch of friends met on the beach to sip a warm cup of Cremat (made of flambé rhum, lemon skins, cinnamon, sugar and coffee).

Afterwards, we jumped on our SUP and went paddling to the next cale, of Sa Riera, a 40 minutes ride from the base of Club Vela Pals. The sea was so calm that we were gliding effortlessly. We were 7 paddlers (Julio, Paul, Román, Ramón, Javier, Víctor and myself), plus  kayak with Laura and Albert, and 2 catamarans skipped by Kiku and Carlos.

One of the hobbie-cats carried a cooler on board, and treated us to a mid-point gin tonic on the beach of Sa Riera, before we paddled back to Pals.
