Just arrived in Lanzarote after a great sail from Madeira. 358 miles and 4 islands, Madeira, Porto Santo, Graciosa and Lanzarote. Sailed in company with a French yacht from Graciosa to Arrecife and had a ‘mutual photo shoot’ great photos.
Vigo to Madeira via Porto Santo
We’ve arrived in Madeira – and we are all really happy to say that the weather was nowhere like last years. We made it to Porto Santo, where the tiny harbour was busy so we spend 2 nights on a buoy and used the dinghy to go ashore. Our painting is still on the wall from when Lizzy did it many years ago.
We had great sailing for the first half of the trip and then motored in no wind the second half – we had loads of dolphins with us, 4 whales and a floating fridge. I wasnt quick enough to capture the whales or fridge on camera, but did manage a shot of the dolphins.
Ready to set sail to Lanzarote next week. The web page at Lanzarote information says it is 32 degrees. Wow. On our way we will be able to stop at our favourite spot in La Graciosa. You can visit here too, join us in Lanzarote for one of our 7 night adventures during December to March. Christmas and New Year too
See you on board
A lot of you are avid followers of our Blog – and we apologise for the lack of entries over the past few weeks. Our custom code (which was written back in 2009) got corrupted, and guess what – the web guys cannot find the original code to put it back up.
Instead of messing about trying to get a reasonable ‘copy’ we have gone for an all out new look blog – hope you like it.
We’re still working on the blog
