Stage #1: Almeria - Taoirirt

Day: 01
Date: Jan 20, 2014
Route: Almeria - Taoirirt
Length: 130km
Country: Spain - Morocco
Character: Warm up stage, no competition.

Stage 1 started at dawn with a short prologue in Almeria designed to give all competitors an introduction to the start procedure, navigation and timing used throughout the Rally. Based on preliminary reports everyone has completed the prologue successfully and no penalties were assessed.

Once all the rally vehicles assembled in port we boarded the vessel to sail us over the Mediterranean to the Moroccan city of Nador. Despite the beautiful weather the sailing was rather rough as the ship labored through large swells and choppy seas. After landing and clearing the customs everyone proceeded to tonightís bivouac in Taourirt just in time for the 9PM briefing.
