Bar Potonao Sopa; Chick Peas & Ham/Goat                                       Maybe by the police station                   Nope, down by the docks?                               Best prawn pils pils around                   And on the house caramel vodka

Up the Creek without a Camel

  We drove into Tierra del Fuego and caught a camel before heading further into the volcanic hills where it is compulsory to take a coach around the national park. At the top of the mountain the resaurant cooks over a natural heat well. Buziing about in our little car we thought it great that a hire car came with half a tank of gas. But then flicking through the meter reading options the car said it had only 9km range left to go on the fuel! Could it be that it converts the fuel guage to read how much

Ball of Chute

Having arrived in the marina we have sorted out our giant baseball of a sail, rebuilt the furling drum and started sail repairs. The headsail leach was showing wear but then we noticed the boltrope on the luff was parting so this job couldn’t wait. Pictured below is the Marina Lanzarote under construction. Focus on meeting ARC safety specs continue with Flare dates and types being assessed.                    


We entered Puerto de Naus expecting an anchorage but this has now been superceded by a new marina which is under construction. On Day 1 we had no services on the pontoons but by day 2 water was flowing and the pontoon electricity pods were all enabled. This is now called Marina Lanzarote and it has huge potential. It is based in Arrecife.
