Sailing in Lanzarote

We’ve been in the Canary Islands since the beginning of December and so far have run 5 of our 7 night sailing trips as well as 1 special 10 night trip over Christmas. Each trip has been unique, with slight variations in route, a really good mix of weather, plenty of fun and laughter and a great mix of both new people and returning customers.

Despite it being warm and sunny – we do not see too many other yachts on the water – so last week it was really nice to see an ex whitbread boat anchored outside Marina Rubicon – Fisher and Paykel, still looking very smart. What a difference to the Volvo 60’s they used in the last race!

Starting on Thursday is our last 7 night trip before heading north. We know it is time to head north because week by week it is getting hotter! We’re looking forward to meeting 6 new people this time and having some more fabulous sailing before we leave our winter home behind and head to the wilds of the Hebrides and the fjords of Norway.
