Chiscos - Atlantic Cruise

It came down immediately. It is a clean tear so we will try and get it repaired in Las Palmas.
As we rounded the island we were then faced with strong (F6) winds on the nose and ended up tacking into a huge heaving sea before we arrived off the marina at San Miguel.
This is a very strange place!! It is like a down market English seaside resort but hot! Cheap bars, the 'Queen Mary ll'cafe and the Nawaab Indian restaurant!!
Still, the marina is new and efficient. Although still windy we had a much calmer night last night and even managed to do some washing today!

Tomorrow we plan to leave for Las Palmas on Gran Canaria - the last part of this leg and start our preparations for the ARC.
