Once again we had everything. First a fresh breeze that had us romping along at 7kts.
Then, as soon as it was dark, the wind disappeared. So it was motoring through the night and through the next morning.
Then, as suddenly as it had vanished, it was back again, and for the final four hours we had 19kts of wind again, and were again stomping along at 7-8kts.
So, here we are in Tenerife. Not sure what the plan is. We were hoping to get some propane gas bottles filled, but it seems that can’t be done until Monday, at the other end of the island. And then Tuesday is a holiday here.
Anyway, first priority is a shower, then a beer, then some food, and then some sleep.
Hmm, so far managed the first two. Then a bus ride, long walk around Santa Cruz to ask about propane bottles. No luck so far, but we did spot an all you-can-eat sushi restaurant. So that is the next stop. After beer two in this cafe while I send this update.
