Hi Everyone

The shop in Ayamonte has re- opened for business; however, compliant with Spanish law, customers can visit the premises only after an appointment has been arranged, and protective face coverings must be worn. But you do not have to visit the shop in person to purchase supplies, we can dispatch any orders to you via our courier service. The free delivery runs coordinated by Gary to the Algarve and Spanish marinas and boatyards will re-commence as soon as possible.

We are operating the shop with off-season hours (Monday to Saturday 10 til 3), but you will be able to make orders and purchases via the website www.ayamarnautico.com, by email sales@ayamarnautico.com or by phone

T: 0034 959470814; M: 0034 619 653 099

The website has yet to be fully stocked, and so you may need to email/phone orders through if you don’t see what you want on-line; you can view/download the catalogue from the website.

As you may know, I am back in the UK, and I took up my previous post as Consultant Psychologist in the NHS as soon as the call came out from the UK Government. It is unlikely that I will be able to relinquish those responsibilities for some time (mental illness is likely to increase rather than decrease in the coming months). I anticipate that it will be towards the end of the year when I will be able to return to Spain and Portugal. In the mean time I am relying totally on Diane, John and Gary (and now Laurie who is a new member of the team) to run the business. They are doing a great job.

Keep looking after yourselves and be sensible, as will we. Our thoughts continue to be with all of our friends and colleagues whose lives, livelihoods and businesses have been adversely affected by Covid 19.

Best wishes
