Title: Getting ready...still...

Saturday 9th December 2006, pontoon 15 in Marina Deportivo de Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. Been here for 10 days or so, making the final preparations for the departure to the Cape Verdes on or about the 17th of December. Hoping to be there for Christmas and then off to the Caribbean, probably Barbados first, for some R&R (rum and roti).
 
Lots of little jobs still to do, but most aren't too essential so if they don't all get done, well who cares...looking forward to the final shopping, including some rather lovely Spanish wine and a leg of ham (or two if I can sneak another one aboard). Seems a shame to leave all the lovely Spanish nosh behind so we're determined to take as much of the especially nice stuff with us, and sod the extra weight!
 
Lots of other boats here getting ready for the off, many nationalties including Aussies, Kiwis, Americans, French, German, Dutch...the list goes on. A fair sprinkling of Brits too, and a reasonable number of people we know from our time spent in Turkey, including those who still have the diving gear they bought from us when we left Turkey without a boat.
 
We will try to keep this blog frequently updated, at least when there's something new to report, so keep checking!
