#1: 8.5 km to the Confluence

(visited by Rainer Mautz)

24-Oct-2010 -- This report is the last out of a series of five Confluences that I visited during an extended weekend to Morocco. The story starts from 33N 7W.

Despite it was already afternoon on the eve before returning to Switzerland, I thought that a quick investigation on this Confluence was still feasible. When I arrived in Rabat this Sunday afternoon, the streets of Rabat were very busy and the traffic gave me almost a headache. However, I made it to Rabat Harbour, where one can actually find some nice motor yachts that could potentially bring a confluence hunter to his destination (at a beeline distance of 16.5 km). Due to the time of the day and also some hesitation due to missing language skills, I didn't approach a yacht owner with a proposal for a confluence visit.

I drove a bit further along the coastline and went to the nearest point on land at a distance of 8.5 km to the Confluence. The coastline consists of partially rocks, partially beaches, but without any boats, ships, fishermen, or yachts. So the best approach would be to begin investigation at Rabat Harbour.

CP visit details:

  • Beeline distance from car parking: 9 km
  • Measured height: 14 m
  • Position accuracy at the closest point to the CP: 4 m
  • Minimal distance to the CP: 8.5 km
  • Given Name: The Hesitated Boat Trip Confluence
