Eventually decided to ship it home by road, so have just returned today - boat was loaded yesterday and will be in Poole next Monday.
Comments on Sant Carles. Marina very well set up. Service for lifting mast and then boat onto transport excellent and modestly priced. Location, I think, an acquired taste - pity I did not have time to explore the land side, and for a sailboat rather restrictive as not many places to day sail to. Spoilt after 10 years in Corfu! Access depends on where you fly from. I live in Poole and Ryanair fly Mondays and Thursdays to Valencia from Bournemouth so I went out Monday morning and came back this morning £80. Hire car 170 euros + 27 fuel.
I can see the attractions if you like Spanish as opposed to Brit places - the town is very pleasant and for a MOBO that can make Majorca in just a few hours rather than the 20 hours it took us to motor from Port Andratx (sp?) it has a lot going for it. Don't know about the higher management but Jo on the desk was great in helping me sort out my problems!

Shame that our paths have crossed - we are leaving Devon tomorrow morning for a few weeks on the boat - it would have been good to meet you.
I've wondered who owns the berth next to us - maybe we will get to meet them as well.
You probably met the other nextdoor bertholder who I believe was out there recently lifting and sorting his Sunseeker.
I believe that James France from these forums was out there recently as well. Maybe you had the chance to meet him?
As you say, Joanna is really helpful - a great asset to the marina. I'm always emailing little questions to her and she replies promptly.
As I say, sorry to miss you

Only had 3 days there when we first arrived and then came back to UK to sort out what we were going to do with the boat. Then the quick trip out to supervise the loading. Now all I have to do is sort out the unloading this end - not straightforward because on the limit of our hoist in the club but no doubt we will find a way round it.
The owner of the berth next door is an "investor" who owns a number of berths - but does not have a boat (at the moment). I will tell him who you are when I next see him.
Not my style, but your boat really looks the biz! The Bowman 48 4 berths down would suit me nicely though!
