Bye bye Canaries, Cape Verde here we come.

Our friends Pirjo and Mattis of the yacht ‘Jaya’ waved goodbye from the harbour wall as we left Las Palmas yesterday morning. We’ve been in the Canaries for five very enjoyable months, four more than we planned!
The breeze through yesterday and overnight was good and we have come 130 NM in the last 24 hours but for the next couple of days winds will be light so progress towards Cape Verde will probably be slower.
All is well with Moonstone except the AIS failed to function properly overnight but was happy to show us a couple of ships nearby this morning – we suspect the new masthead LED bulb might be interfering with the incoming AIS signals but it will give us something to think about.
