On-board Diary: Intensive in the bank and off to Portugal

The weather forecast is very changeable. Every time we consult it we get different forecasts to the previous ones. Making a decision this way is quite complicated, but we stronly intend to leave for Portugal. At last we work the whole day in the Chella Bank after three days moored and we make the most out of the little time we have. Thus we carry out 4 dives, three of them in moundes we haven’t visited before, and another one looking for a difficult area that we had to leave days ago due to the high amount of fishing lines entangled in the rocks. But we are stubborn and want to document it better, since the amount of white and black corals –leaving apart the fishing lines- was awesome.
