To recap a little, the passage from Gibraltar to Lanzarote was 650 miles in 6 days. As soon as we reached the more open water of the Atlantic there was a difference - a much larger, but also longer swell than anything we had ever had in the Mediterranean. It took a few days to get used to the larger waves but the fact that they were widely spaced made them easier to handle.
More video footage from Namani... the first one was taken during the last miles of our approach to Lanzarote, testing our orange peel slingshot (gotta find ways of keeping Nicky busy on days on which we don't catch any fish...):

The Blue Water Rally website (see link to the right) has a picture of Namani being lifted out of the water yesterday (look under "Stop Press" on the BWR site). We're putting on 2 new coats of antifoul today (thanks to the help of Jo and Dave from Seabright), before going back into the water tomorrow afternoon. Stay tuned...
