Another day has passed in utterly relaxed Puerto Calero, Lanzarote. Jaap has left for Holland, Rob has joined the crew, KeeS is still mastless, and I became one year older.

This afternoon we will probably finish our work on the mast. If nothing goes wrong, we should be able to get it up tomorrow.

Puerto Calero boat shop - This is supposed to be the only wired place around here: A small shop with one PC to use for my online habits. Well, it will just have to do in absence of my GSM.

Just in KeeS

28°41'N, 14°08'W, Aboard KeeS - On arrival in Puerto Calero I was immediately overwhelmed by the ultra-relaxed atmosphere of the reasonably modern port: lots of 'liveaboards' and a handful of lost tourist, side by side enjoying the slow pace of a Spanish Sunday.

Basje has just arrived at Lanzarote. The weather is a bit better than it is in Holland and Germany, all the luggage and food-supplies arrived as well and Air Berlin is OK. Now he's on his way to meet KeeS.

Salt water views

Aboard Air Berlin 8568 - As we are passing Casablanca, the waves of the Atlantic Ocean seem almost frozen in the bright morning sun. They also look less impressive than they will be once I'm surrounded by them, instead of looking down on the ocean from 37,000 feet in the sky.

Destination: Lanzarote (instead of Las Palmas)
# | Posted in Real Time by Bas at Nov, 14 - 01:17 PM | Comments (0)

Since it's going to take a while to get the stays fixed, KeeS will have to remain in Lanzarote for at least a week. Therefore, a few minutes ago, I changed my ticket: I will fly to Lanzarote instead of Las Palmas.

The adventure begins before it's started

Fiona & Andre are experiencing a little trouble: Nothing serious, it's just that the mast of KeeS has been brought down. And who needs a mast on a sailing yacht anyway?

Fishin' gear
# | Posted in Real Time by Bas at Nov, 10 - 12:46 AM | Comments (0)

What to eat, when we're sailing the ocean for weeks in a row? I'm sure we will get tired of canned meat and easy pasta. That's why I bought something challenging.
For one, it will be a personal challenge, 'cause I've never ever caught a fish in my entire life. But secondly I'm daring my fellow crew members: Wanna bet who will catch the biggest tuna?

Preparation Time

Chris found us a very nice site, with a lot of stories from a family who sailed plenty of oceans: Candide op reis. Currently, their beautiful yacht is for sale. (Now that would make a nice birthday present, people! ;-)
