Arrived in Las Palmas

Sun 16 Nov 2008 19:36
Hi Everyone,

Well we have arrived in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, the departure point for the ARC Rally.
We sailed overnight from Puerto Calero on Lanzarote Island (120 N Miles) and arrived this morning local time (GMT).
In total we have sailed 800 miles from Gibraltar, and we are definetely in a different climatic zone! Everyone in shorts, sandals and T shirts.

It is a massive carnival atmosphere around the Marina, with 225 boats here for the rally, and all sorts of activities going on for the participants for the last week and planned for the coming week before we depart next Sunday.

Today there was a dinghy race with water bombs, flour fights etc. lots of laughs.
