Continuing to sail our sailboat across the Schengen zone in the Mediterranean Sea from Gibraltar to Montenegro we are suddenly blinded by an unidentified boat with flashing lights and boarded by men carrying guns!

These men turn out to be Spanish customs checking that we aren’t smuggling people or drugs into the country. Despite our initial shock we find them professional and, after a quick search of the boat, they disappear again into the night.

As we have no wind to continue on and strong winds against us are forecast we take shelter in an inland lagoon called the Mar Menor. Whilst there Iain takes an unexpected swim off of the boat and we continue with boat jobs.

Eventually we head out to the Balearics, enjoy some beautiful sunrises and sunsets, encounter dolphins and thousands of juvenile jellyfish, anchor in the crystal clear waters of Formentera before finally arriving in Menorca to shelter from forecasted winds of 40kts.
