28:20N 31:19W cog97 and sog 7 at the moment with 923nm to go, a bit more
than 2/3rds done. Simon the routing guy suggested a tack north, or
maybe going through the islands to reach Lanzarote. I really don't fancy
going through the islands solo - lots of night-time traffic around the
bigger islands, wind compression zones, traffic sep systems for the big
ships blah, so I will try make sure I pass through waypoint 29ishNorth
18ishWest just north of the northest Canary island, from which it's easy
enough to Lanza. I may be able to just jig over to that waypoint when
the wind is right but I'd tack in calmer stuff maybe nearer in yet.
Meanwhile things are getting back to chaotic normal in the UK, flights
and things to do all being orgainsed but with plenty of time yet to park
in Lanza and hibernate the boat a bit first.
