Cathy and Gordon’s change of plan

Cathy and Gordon’s change of plan

Cathy says “There are still high winds and big seas between Gibraltar and the Canaries.  It is a 700 mile journey and we wouldn’t want to set off in unsettled weather especially as much of the new kit is still untested”.

 After what must have been a difficult decision, they will now be staying in Gibraltar until April.  They will over-winter there and enjoy day sailing out into the Straits and hopefully have more luck when Plan B commences in April when they will set off for the Caribbean via the Canaries and Cape Verde Islands.
