Aveiro is set in a large estuary and has canals snaking through the old town. We arrived at the harbor entrance just as a big fishing boat festival parade was barrelling down on us, loaded with merrymakers, flags flying, horns honking. A marine policeman on a jet ski helped us through. Then we motored through a sailboat race. There was lots of current, so tying up our 42ft boat in a 44ft spot on a long dock was a challenge. But we made it with help from the friendly folks already there.
