Our arrival at Las Palmas

Hello to everyone! Greetings from the crew of Blue Magic First 40.7 -  Nikola, Stojan, Nikolaj and Stanislav from Bulgaria.  

We left port of Balchik, Bulgaria, on the 2nd of October, destination Las Palmas for the participation in the ARC 2016. On the day of our departure we had a big party with lots of friends and supporters organized at the sailing club which boosted our enthusiasm in this adventure. Our overall travel of 33 days to Las Palmas went quite smoothly. We enjoyed generally good whether conditions. We stopped in some lovely places in Greece, Italy and Spain before heading to the Canary Islands.  We even fished tuna near Sardinia, actually lots of tune which we ate both cooked and raw. Dolphins greeted us along the way. More in detail, starting from Balchik, we went south along the Bulgarian coast of the Black Sea, then through the Strait of Boshpurus in the Sea of Marmara, through the Strait of Dardanelles in the Aegean Sea, through the Strait of Corinth in the Ionian Sea, through the Strait of Messina (Sicily) in Tyrrhenian Sea, Mediterranean See, Gibraltar, and finally in the Atlantic Ocean towards the Canary Islands. We arrived in Las Palmas on the 5th of November at 00.55am, after 33 days and 2,767 miles of sailing. This was a great opportunity for testing our First 40.7 before the start of the ARC 2016 on 20th of November and we must say that Blue Magic performed excellently!
