Going to Barbados - hopefully!

Our crew, Nigel arrived last Thursday and has been helping get Nimue ready for her first Atlantic crossing.  Unfortunately, we have had to delay our departure due to the bad weather in the UK, which has in turn caused stormy weather in the Canaries.  Anyway, all is looking better for our departure tomorrow (1st Dec).  We are intending take a southerly course down towards the Cape Verdes, where we hope to pick up the Trade winds that will take us to Barbados.   We have spent the last few days, stocking up with food etc, and also taking the opportunity to have a look around Tenerife.
