Endelig er vi under veis. Det kjennes veldig godt. Sola skinner. Vi har 12 -
13 m/s vind og seiler lens. Vi har fem døgn igjen til vi er i havn, men det
kjennes likevel godt, og det er godt å vite at vi seiler mot sol og sommer,
i alle fall med hensyn til været. Det er selvsagt oktober på Lanzarote også,
slik som i Norge og alle andre steder når vi kommer fram.

We hav sailed 64 nM from Gibraltar. We have been out for 10 hours. We
started 3 hours after high water and had excellent conditions. We followed
the Spanish mainland closely almost to Tarifa where we headed for Tanger.
Only in the midle of the strait did we encounter current agains us. After
crossing the shipping lanes and were close to Morocco, we once more got
carried by a current of close to 3 knots. We are four boats that left
together. For a while we leaded the group, but we only run the genoa, and
the others found better wind further out, so now we are number three. But
this is no race. We don't mind going a little slow. It is comfortable that
way.
