Troubles on our way to paradise.

By Posted in - Action & Travel on September 14th, 2015 The knife!

Last Friday I was invited by Jacco and Theo to sail with their yacht PURE to Formentera. In August 2008 Jan, Ron, Harry and I had visited PURE for the first time.

Visit with Harry and our friends Jan and Ron in 2008

And I already had been sailing with them for 4 days in June 2011 from Barcelona to Sitges, right after Harry’s dead as a sort of retreat for lot’s of thinking and talking.

Wedding picture in the year 2000

They met each other in 1988 and got married in the year 2000. In 2010 they met Ric. Ricardo Aguirrezabal is 38 years old. He was born in San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador, but moved to Barcelona to study for dentistry. He is now specialized in orthodontics. They try to be with the three of them as much as possible.

Jacco, Ric & Theo when they just met!

Harry and I met Jacco and Theo in 2001 at the Cafe Strano in Rotterdam. We became friends and soon after we met for the first time we were invited for their famous “prakje” (most of the time potatoes with vegetables puree mashed with a big piece of meat). Both guys are down to earth. Theo is the serious talker, Jacco is the silent one, but when he talks it is so much fun.

Back to the boat trip.

I had to be in the harbor of St. Eularia on Friday at 12.00 o’clock. Theo was picking up their friend Stef in Ibiza town, who they had “lost” the night before after dancing in Anfora discotheque. Stef was without mobile and the two misunderstood, so Theo was searching for Stef in Ibiza town, while Stef had taken a taxi to St. Eulalia.

Ric already arrived Thursday from Barcelona. And on the boat were also their friends Wim and Michelle.

Work has to be done!

Right when we started sailing out of the harbor I heard Jacco making an urgent call to the harbor patrols. I saw some panic and Theo, Ric and Stef started putting back the bounce balls. One of the two engines fell out. With one engine Jacco had to go back to their harbor spot.

One of the two patrol men went into the water to check the propellers and when he came out of the water he said:

“There is a rope around one propeller!”

The first dive

“I will do the diving” Theo said and he got his snorkel mask.

After his first dive, he came op with a bleeding finger and asked for a knife to cut the rope. The propellers are sharp, mainly from the growing shells on it.

A few dives later they said the rope was too tight so they needed to go to the bridge to pull up the boat.

I had never seen something like this before! A 25.000 kilograms yacht pulled up by only three straps and hauled into the harbor. See the youtube video:

The patrol men were also the handy men and they took apart the whole propeller to get rid of the rope.

Finally at 4:30 PM we could sail to Formentera. Because we were so late we decided to stay over one night, so groceries for Saturday had to be bought before leaving the harbor.

How beautiful to see the island Ibiza from the sea. Cliffs you never could see while hiking the mountains. We passed our favorite beach Es Cavallet and the tower at the South end.
