Layla - It's not what cards you are dealt..........

……. but the way you play your hand :-)

Well what a week we have had in Las Palmas - our plans of a controlled preparation have been less than smooth !! We started off the weeks fun with a stunning win at the costume party with much fun and frolicks. This was  followed by us continuing to climb the Everest of our to do list :-) with good progress being made across engineering and provisioning. After our late rig check we decided to go for a lift out for further investigation which prompted an unexpected midnight painting party (who can resist a bit of antifouling when the opportunity arises)  The followng day an early start to complete the painting was followed by some bad news in the shape of a 2cm crack at the top of our forestay :-( Well it is a reality that a boat that is 2000 cm long and 3000cm high can be stopped in its tracks by such a tiny crack... but then that is sailing - it is the right decision to delay our departure and repair before such a long journey. So to those at home who are tracking us we will be somewhat stationary for a while.... watch this space please:-)
