The service in the marina Quinta do Lorde was excellent but heavy swell entered the marina sometimes and it was a big stress for our lines and fenders and I wondered how it would be during wintertime.
On the 16th at 10:00 h we let go all lines said good bye to Udo and Heidi and started our voyage to La Graciosa, our first Island in the Canaries. After a fine and easy voyage of 280 nm we arrived at La Graciosa the 18th of September at 01:00 am.
La Graciosa is a vulcanic desert Island with a little village. 18 yachts have anchored in the bay with a white sandy beach. Yesterday we went ashore and had a meal in one of the restaurants. Today Frank cleaned our propeller which was already fouled, Barbara polished all our stainless steel witch got rusty. A few times a day we take a swimm now in the warm and clean Atlantic water.
