Arrived at Piriapolis

Up reasonably early for departure at 08:20. Andre arrived back around 08:00 after a long night out.

It was bit fiddly leaving berth 319. One has to be very careful with mooring buoy chains.
Initially we made good progress under sail with a NNW wind but around 11:00 the wind backed W and we began to motor tack against a strong ebb.

Progress was very slow and we took over 8 hours to cover 20 miles.

Arriving at Piriapolis just after 17:00 we found the port almost full but at 17:30 we were all fast at berth #50.

The rudder was removed for repair and the plan is to return to BsAs for a few days before moving the boat round to Puerto Sauce.
