Detailed Track (50 is the maximum number of point, i.e. once the last point reaches 50, the last point always is 50):
Because of winds from SW - exactly on the rhumb line for La Gomera - and because of a diesel level that would have
made a landfall in La Gomera just at the end of the tanks.
It was decided to divert to Lanzarote for refueling and perhaps an overnight.
Forecast for Saturday are for winds from the East. So it would make it easier to then continue for La Gomera.
