    In nice and early today. Last time I came here it wasnt fully finished. Now its heaving and we are rafted 3 deep on the long pontoon. Looks like a whole new town has grown next to the marina but wil likely remain unexplored.
    The marina bar above the office is a pleasant place to while away an hour whilst the officina staff are out and about!
    Another early one tomorrow as we set off for island 5. Puerto Rico on GC for cheap beer and Tom Jones impersonator. As you do.

    These early starts are getting to be a habit! Night in for the team a bit of a break from pubs and restaurants.
    Slick departure this morning outside boat in raft. Few whispers to slip and gone.
    Clear sky promises a nice sunrise. Little wind forecast but often picks up in the wind acceleration zones between the islands. Light forecast yesterday turned into a one reef broad reach.
    Hope Tom Jones is having a good nights kip.

    Very nice to have met another forum user. And of course your dog!
    This morning divide and conquer. One off on forage party, one to return key at office whilst I prep boat. Which mostly involves sitting about.
    Today after overnight rain we got light winds and sunshine. Our brief stop in Puerto Rico also included bunkers so soon its slip and go.
    Will use the anchorage off Moro Jable for a few hours at dark oclock. Will leave there after sunrise for Gran Tarajal. Lads want to see something of Fuerta in daylight for future reference. Nothing at all to do with naked ladies on beaches. Whatsoever. No.
    Last island before homeward bounders back in time for Strictly!
