Fast passage from Madeira to Lanzarote

graciosa

Its not often I get to say this – the conditions were perfect – we sailed for 42 hours on a close reach in a flat sea and reached Lanzarote in record time.  Just north of Lanzarote is the tiny island of Graciosa – inhabited by only 900 people and we had enough time to anchor here for the night.

A walk ashore was followed by gin and tonics and a fabulous sunset.  The next day we had glorious weather but not much wind for a sail to Arrecife and then our final day a fantastic sail to Marina Rubicon.
