Acceleration Zone - Richard

25 July 2008 | Southwest Corner of Gran Canaria
Brittany
On Friday, July 25th, Richard, George and I departed Puerto Mogan on the south side of Gran Canaria for Tenerife. Our friend Maxime had warned us of the strength of the winds in the acceleration zone as you round north up the eastern coast of Gran Canaria. As you can see from the quality of the sea and the angle of the boat in relation to it, Maxime was right. And yet, our intrepid Captain Richard is unfazed by the seas crashing over the sides of the boat, giving him a refreshingly briny bath, over and over again. Is that the hint of a smile I see? :)
