After leaving Tarfaya, we had a great sail back across to Fuertaventura arriving at Morre Jable at 22.30 hrs

Wind on the beam all the way. It dies as the sun was setting but then came back with a vengance just as we had poured the gin and tonics.

Reef the main and sail the last few miles over a choppy confused sea as the wind angle had changed. That's the Canaries for you!

Moored up on the visitors pontoon and Sam produced a spag bog from somewhere.

This was our second visit to Morre Jable having arrived here with Ness and Ian back in November en route from Tenerife to Lanzarote.

This time, getting in and moored up was a lot easier. Morre Jable is well known for its sudden blasts of hot winds straight down off the mountains.

Up and away next morning at 10.00 hrs.
