Passage to Las Palmas, Gran Canaria - 7 November

Tue 8 Nov 2005 09:11
Today we sailed back to Las Palmas.  It was around 50 miles and was mainly a fine reach in a force 4-5, although it became a fetch at one point.
It was quite choppy and we were reminded how much larger the waves look when you are not sailing downwind.
We saw more dolphins:
4 dolphins leaping together - Gran Canaria can just be made out behind the ship
Alice and Pip were both sick today (we thought they were over this!)  Alice was sick while I was serving up the lunch (chicken & vegetable soup) but she still wanted some and are all her portion plus seconds.
At the moment we keep pinching ourselves that we are now in Las Palmas, have finished the delivery and the next sail we do will be the ARC itself.
