We left Graciosa with a lot of regrets- it would
have been easy to stay and chill out for longer!
We sailed down the west side of Lanzarotte slowly
with a following wind and to our surprise caught 2 lovely tuna which provided a
very tasty dinner.
We were annoyed to be overtaken by a German yacht
and we tried all sorts to catch up and failed. As we approached
the SW coast of Lanzarotte we were visited by half a dozen dolphin of some type-
we haven't found our identification chart yet!- they appeared less sleek and
playful than most and showed very white under the water. We entered
the Marina Rubicon on the south coast of Lanzarotte and while checking in the
German admitted he had his engine on so we were 'not so put out'.
Marina Rubicon is very new but despite that the
laundry was broken down and wi-fi was variable. However there is a swimming pool
and plenty of shops and restaurants. Wednesday we walked to Playa Blanca which
is a new resort and really is the sort of place we do not like; it's crowded
beach sends shivers down my spine! The marina environment is quieter with
several hotels and bungalows as part of the development but all done in good
