Atlantic crossing 2016

And now a real berth!

Good news. Our agent has found a much more suitable berth. Nilaya moved to a stern to berth in Las Palmas marina. Tom (captain) and the agent located a metal work shop who could fashion a repair to the damaged headboard car. Whilst not the most aesthetic piece of the boat, it will be fully serviceable and get us across the sea to Antigua.

The rest of the crew worked hard all day, preparing the boat for departure. Tom’s suggestion that the working day finish at 1530 was greeted well. Crew went to the local chandlery, into Las Palmas, for a walk or run. Activities followed by a very refreshing beer on the dock before heading into the old town on advice from Pauline Pearse who had been in town for a few days more.  JI
