This is the third migration time of year we have been here in the Canary Islands. Not a scientific count (!) but I think its the busiest Ive seen it over that time.

3 ARC routes may be adding numbers? https://www.worldcruising.com/arc/arcitinerary.aspx

Las Palmas is always full now but what Im seeing already is the big numbers of boats coming through the marinas and anchorages on Lanzarote. Also noticeable is the number of smaller and older boats too. Our pontoon in Rubicon is rarely busy but six smaller yachts have arrived and one gone over the past ten days.

All three marinas are maxed out at the moment...... sailed up to the marina in Arrecife on monday, no room at the Inn. As I actually use my VHF () Im hearing on Ch. 9 lots of disappointed people being turned away. So theres a lot about.

Good luck to all the forum users doing the passage this year, enjoy the arrival rum!
