|Hi All - we are finally on our way! - but not without last minute heroics and artistic endeavour!….Andy P dropped the large water filter into the harbour (and then heroically dived down and retrieved it!) while Dave created the Baby Blue wall art (see pictures below) to mark our presence in Las Palmas.|
It was quite an emotional scene as we left Las Palmas with a brass band playing at the harbour entrance (or in this case, exit), crowds… and of course Wendy and Glenda standing by the breakwater waving and wishing us a safe trip.
We crossed the start line in a gaggle of 80 yachts all jostling for position and soon started to pull away with the top few boats.
The boys spotted a few dolphins and a whale… which always cheers everyone up!
The wind died away as predicted and we have had to motor for an hour or two but expect to be sailing again by midnight - which is when my three hour watch starts!
It will soon be dinner time!
Will start fishing tomorrow.
