A WOOSH, A SWOOSH AND SOME CRUNCHITY BANG!!!

Last week saw fairly brisk winds around the Eastern Canaries. We ran a cruise week with one of our students taking sights for his Ocean exam. Despite the breeze, the mostly clear skies gave some outstanding results.


Before leaving, part of any deployment for a few days is preparing the boat for the trip. Our future Ocean skipper was presented with a clean and victualled yacht, (logging and storing the victuals was part of the skippers´ responsibilities) but with a wind vane missing that blew away the previous Friday. Undeterred, he completed the safety brief, fuelling, plus an hour up the very top of the mast to fit a new one!

Our destination was the marina in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria around 100 miles. So, despite the “fast ball” all was good for a lunchtime departure, also in time to practice the first NOON SIGHT FOR LATITUDE!


We headed well off out to the west to get a nice straight run for the sight, with not much sail (2 reefs) and a rather bumpy sea. WOOSH! Averaged up to 7 knots, all the way to Las Palmas. Crew also had good practice with overnight watch keeping routines and moderate shipping traffic bringing the Rules of the Road to life.

Breakfast in Las Palmas Marina – also involves a fair bit of queuing to clear in for our pre-booked berth – this, a definite recommend.

Back to school for the afternoon, reducing and plotting sights, then for a rather nice glass of wine or two with supper.

SWOOSH

Next day’s reach across to Morro Jable in Fuerteventura saw a cloudy start, but clearing to the blue, rolling seas, dolphins (for about 30 seconds) and again a high speed (in yacht terms) roly ride across the gap. An unexpected early arrival in Morro Jable, gave time to find a berth. Ummm, it’s not the best organised place! Very limited, no facilities but the Turtle Farm, Fishermen’s Bar and very friendly Harbourmaster, make it interesting. 

                                                                Turtle Farm in the harbour.

CRUNCHITY BANG!!!  -  1

Wind, wind, wind. Mostly into it for the shorter trip to GRAN TARAJAL. Best kept cold showers we have ever seen in the marina! Very old fashioned and unspoilt town.

Best bits ashore, seafront promenade bar, 1950’s Diner. Awesome music, cheap beer. Do not miss dining in the COFRADIA / Fisherman’s bar between the marina and town. Great night for our Astro students’ birthday!

CRUNCHITY BANG  -  2  !!

Final day. Wind firmly remaining out of the North East F5-6 as it had been all week, directly from where we wanted to go.

So, forewarned, sausages cooked, 3 reefs in the main and a 05.30 departure got us prepped and under way. Very crunchity, lots of bang! But views of Fuerteventura as the sun came up, blue again in the seas and sky made for a long but satisfying day. Glad to be in lager o´clock at end of week and early night to catch up with odd hours.

Well done to a great crew.

More soon,

Chris
