4th Dec – Las Palmas to Pasito Blanco

Its hard getting away from these Spanish marinas early, first there is the gate keys to return and deposit refunded then fuel up with diesel , so it was 11 before we were away. Outside of the harbour our way was south, there was a fair old swell so it was a bit rolly. Later the wind picked up further, peaking at 25 to 30 knots so a lively sail. Passsed the lighthouse of Maspalomas, and all the sand dunes it was a bit quieter and we tucked into the bay by Pasito Blanco just as the sun was setting and put down the anchor for the night.
