We spent a few more days in Tenerife after I got back from the UK. The plan was to head to the Cape Verdes once the provisioning was completed and we got back a hard drive that we had managed to corrupt..... another story! Andrew hired the 'yellow peril' to pick me up from the airport and we did and great day of touring on Mount Tiede and a lovely walk in the pine forest on the slopes.

We waved good bye to the 'name theives' - Sakari - Susie and John from New Zealand heading to Barbados; unfortunately we slept in whilst Gillian, Neil and Jane on Silver Lining slipped out the next day on the Odyssey Rally. We are in touch with them all out on the ocean and are wishing them safe sailing.

We had planned to depart for Cape Verdes on 23rd November however there was no wind and the forecast was not set to improve so instead we decided to head to La Gomera......
