And this time we had a luck to catch Albacore Tuna (Bonito del Norte)!.!!. Well, to be sincere we didn’t know that we caught it, till we decided to roll in the fishing line before entering the harbor. And so there we had a nice surprise- 3 kg beautiful fish:)
Good lunch, dinner and probably another lunch and dinner:)
We are now in Lanzarote. Friends (Arantza, Yaya and Katia) from Madrid came to visit us , so we sailed down from Graciosa to Arrecife , Lanzarote Marina (brand new and nice marina in the center of the city) to spend a week with them.
Perfect 15-20 knots wind from the back, moderate waves, dolphins and fish on a hook! Long time ago we didn’t have such pleasure! So let’s hope that the way back to Graciosa we will have similar conditions, although this means to be too optimistic. Winds here tend to blow constantly from north, north east or north west directions, so the best way to sail up is to wait calm days and go tacking into the wind. But for the moment Grib files are not showing anything good……so lets see how long we will be ‘stuck’ here in Lanzarote...
