Still in a very wet dark Gibraltar, waiting for “the weather window”, I’m sure you have seen the awful happenings in the Atlantic, thank goodness we are not over there now.
So our escape from here will depend on the wind and sea state looking safe enough to do our next leg to the Canaries. We are keeping busy with the never ending list of jobs, one of the important jobs is the Hydravane self steering, hopefully the weather will dry up soon or its looking like we will be very wet installing it.
There are at least 8 boats going with the ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers) all on a time schedule and getting quite jumpy, after all as someone said “all the pies will be gone”. The ARC boats have all paid lots of money which in return they have instruction for many thing and both leaving parties and an arrival party. Maybe the start will be delayed who knows but hopefully the weather will improve soon.
So I will be back here soon with news of our departure.
