Oct 17, 2018 - Day 60 - 41º30'N 008º50'W to Porto

Summary
After a night of light winds we approach marina Leixoes in the early morning. As it is full and also does not look very inviting we move on to marina Rio Douro in Porto. This involves a challenging approach into Douro River but clearly is a good choice.
