Anchor place around Las Galettas – Anchor place at Los Cristianos.
Position: 28 02 48N 16 42 64 W
Date: Arrivé Samedi 14 vers 17h et reparti ?
Date: Arrived Sat 14th around 5pm and left ?.
We left only to try to find a place where we could go ashore with the zodiac to do some shopping and have dinner. We arrived in Los Cristianos that had an official anchoring place a bit before the harbor. We anchored and rowed until the nearest beach, had dinner and bought some bread before coming back to the boat. We spend the day refreshing the boat, drying everything and cleaning everything. And on my side writing for this blog as well.
If all goes well tomorrow we should go ashore and spend the rest of our time here visiting the island. We will probably rent a car and go to the Teide that has an altitude of 3718 m and other important interest points. When the crew will be complete, we will complete the shopping and the reparation (oh did I mention the leak in the fresh water tank?) and then we will unmoor to go and cross the ocean.
If all goes well we should leave around the 21st of November or maybe one or two days later, as we are not going to Cape Verde the crossing could take around 20 days but it could be more depending on the wind.
See you on the other side!
