Last leg to Las Palmas
Mike and I have been joined by a mate of his, Graham (a
naval chappie), for the last leg. It didn’t start too well as it was pouring
with rain in
We finally left at 4pm on Friday 31 October with a fair breeze straight into the sunset. That was the best we saw for two days which were peppered with bouts of rain, 25 kts of wind, followed by relative nothing, 5/6 or so, with the boat then rolling round in high seas and some queasiness aboard. We had some huge squalls, 35 kts regularly with a high recorded of 37.5 and a boat speed of 11.1 – hairy indeed!
Storm coming!!!!! And after.......
Today, Monday, is better with some sun to dry up in and 16 kts. We are making very good time and will arrive earlier, hopefully Wednesday.
