The sail from Marina Rubicon to Las Palmas on Gran Canaria was a long day sailing over 100 nm. The winds were in our favour and with waves at about 2 meters we got some good speed.
The sail from Lanzarote with the big waves was quite a thrill having waves that were aboe our heads and looking down into the troughs was like being on a rollacoaster. Getting good pictures of how high the waves really were was not easy, but we managed, the things we do for you our followers :-) Heidi thought this day might have been the most challenging, as we were soo close to our destination but still sooo far away, time could not go any slower and the nautical miles could not be any longer.
Finally we arrived at the right island at Las Palmas we chose a big harbour, Marina Deportivo and as usual we arrived at about 1 in the night, unfortunatly nobody answered my calls on VHF nor on the phone. This being a really big marina with over 1200 berths, I expected that someone would be there, but no.
We decided to just moored up on the pontoon by the gas-station and go to sleep. As there was nobody there we didn't get water or electricity, and planned for an early start the next morning, planning on paying for our night then, but luck has it that we were up and left at 7 AM and still the office was not open, so we just left, when the service is this poor, we really can not wait around for people to arrive.
