Getting ready to go

We’re still in La Linea. The batteries have been installed and the sails are ready to be picked up in Gibraltar, which we plan to do tomorrow. We’re keen to leave for the Canaries on Saturday or Sunday, weather permitting! We keep checking the weather forecast as it is constantly changing and we want to pick the best window. In the meantime, we try to make the most of our time here and had several trips into Gibraltar (by foot) and also spent a day in Tarifa yesterday, catching up with our Belgian friends Gaetan and Valerie! It’s also been nice to hook up with several other boats here in La Linea (on our pontoon) who are doing the same route as us. We plan to leave together and stay in radio contact if possible. There’s one other boat with a nine year old girl on board, which is great for the boys. There have been a few play-overs, joint trips to the skatepark and the boys started practising their French 🙂
