We are having approximately 250 steps from the boat to where all facilities starts along the pier, bar,restaurants, Arc office , lots off boat equipments stores and a club where we can get membership to use their pool and gym. Arriving after been sailing for a few days the boat needs to be cleaned from all saltwater. When we flushed the list along the boat we found a baby squid that had got stuck under the block. Edgar barely walks barefoot but now I believe it is time or?? Even here it is low and high water.
All food that was purchased in Sweden we took out vacuum pack some of it and I sorted out everything and made a excel spreadsheet. Now we are organised. Just need to remember to fill in when we start taking the food.
We also meet up with our friends Sofia and Fredrik. Me and Sofia went to Ikea and bought some food boxes. Also got material so I can make new cuisines for the cokpit
After a week of fixing we went home to Stockholm to spend time with our family and fixing a few things. It was an intense week and so lovely to be able to fill up with hugs and kisses and having the grandchildren sleeping over even if we didn’t get much sleep.
On flights today it is okay to bring on your knitting. Thanks to wooden knitting needles. My jumper is done and next project is a hat for Nellie.
Back in Las Palmas and two weeks left before the start. Time to sew the cousins for the cockpit. Since we didn’t agree on the colour I will have double work. Start with the blue but cutting both colours. There will also be cousins for our GT bench later. Everything is cut so in Caribbean I can do some sewing. Just when I thought I was done sewing we decided to change the old sunroof and use it in the front of the boat
There is also time for relaxing in between. Next to the harbour is a club with a swimming-pool, gym and restaurant that we could join for a good price. Let’s see how many times I will get ther though. The Arc registration is done . We have nr 313. On the Yb race app you can follow where we are the three/four weeks when we cross the Atlantic. Starting from the 6nov to mid Dec. Look for Arc rally 2022 and then Arc plus.
It is nice to meet the others that are going to sail with us. There are a few sundowners meeting, some dinners , party and seminars before we leave.
Ann and Veronica came down from Sweden to wave us good bye. They are staying in Las Palmas until we leave so I will see them as much a possible. Thank you for coming down
