It’s Monday and sadly the wind is not in our favour and the Atlantic trip is slipping away. That’s 9 months of planning, a 10 week trip to get the boat, “Reunion”, down to the Canaries, a sea survival course and ??35,000 spent on ocean going equipment. Today we set sail to Gomera in the Canaries while the doldrums continue. The plan now looks like a return trip to the Algarve which is nearly 1000 miles of Atlantic sailing. That’ll be exciting in itself but not quite the trip we planned to St Lucia!!
