Oct 03, 2018 - Day 46 - La Coruña - 43º16'N 008º58'W

Summary
With winds a little too low to be optimum we took a late morning departure and left Ria de Coruña to the NW. With all sails up (including the diesel sail for some time) we decided the low wind weather situation would be a perfect day to anchor. So we headed to Corme and dropped the anchor at a picturesque beach Praia de Osmo.
