masked ball 001
We are still here!!!!
Presently moored in Las Palmas, waiting for our start which is now on Tuesday 27th at 11am. The start has been delayed due to bad weather conditions but Tuesday onwards looks fine for us.
This has given us an extra 48 hours to prep the boat and of course socialize with the other crews! The Arc have organised a social event most evenings here so we have partied hard and about burnt out now. We have had friends and family visit us over the last few days by Lesley, Tila, Pat and Geoff. Then Tila sprung a surprise and Josh flew in from Newquay, so it really has been a wonderful last few days.
The race division of the Arc left on their scheduled start time yesterday so we walked down to see the start which was quite spectacular. The adrenaline was flowing and the atmosphere electric in the port, it felt very odd seeing these enormous race boats packing up and sailing out leaving most of the cruising division behind.
Today we just have some last minute cleaning, washing and clearing up now so are looking forward to are departure.
Last week fun was had by all the the Masked Ball party set in the club next to the Marina. We had all prepared out costumes in advance and really enjoyed the evening. I won the best dressed Woman which was a real honour! I think it was the wig that did it!See photo attached....
Our next log should from sea.
