Left Las Palmas at 13.30 and are now heading towards Africa to try and avoid a bit of a hole in the lee of Gran Canaria and Tenerife. I ought to let you know we are now 4....Stan (Flemish bagpiper and previous crew mate of Pau and Mario) has joined us following a bit of magic last night.
Stan turned up to say goodbye to the guys at the sailor bar, and it was clear that he was a really nice guy. I felt a bit mean leaving him but the signs had been so clear bringing Pau and Mario to us that I was confident we had the right team. I went to sleep with the headphones on, and a short playlist to bring on the zzzzs. At 01.30 I woke most unusually to a nice reggae number by Sizzla called "give them the ride" Apple Music had extended my playlist and it was clearly a sign that Stan should join us.
Plan is to make progress towards Cape Verde until we are well into the trades, then make for Grenada. If we needed to drop into those islands we could, but if all goes well we will skirt them.
I will try and keep the blog updated a bit more now that the sailing is less demanding.
