Waiting in La Coruna

Elemiah & I are still moored up in La Coruna waiting for Glenda to arrive from USA on 18th. Our friend and Crew Chris returns by air to the UK tomorrow.

Once Glenda has settled down from closing a home and job in Houston we are off to the Spanish Rias and around Cape Finisterre.

We need some sail repair this week which showed up on our trip. Annoyed at the sail maker who did not do a great job this year on a nearly new main sail we purchased. It took 5 goes back to the sailmaker! Anyhow not a major calamity better now before we get into some heavy weather.

We have arrived in La Coruna!

Richard & Chris Binks set off at 9am Sunday 7th July and arrived 4 days later on Wednesday 4 pm in La Coruna Spain.  See our track http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0iGbB9bnM7NdE772VGqTLpujr5YQMOOGI

The wind was behind us all the way with a consistent 10 knots or less.  We had the head sail poled out most of the way.  The water in the bay of Biscay is aqua blue.  There were dolphins playing with Elemiah and one whale close by.

Glenda is now preparing to get on a plane to the UK then onto La Coruna on 18th.

Getting Ready

The only thing we need to fix is the wind speed indicator and the man is on his way to fix it!!

Chris Binks arrived yesterday, he is crewing with Richard across Biscay.

The good news is that Glenda is leaving her current job and hopping on a plane July 14th to London, staying with Alicia & John then on to A Coruna.  Can’t wait till she is here.

Best estimate is leaving on Friday.  The winds look a little light and may stop off at the Isles of Scilly to take us a little further west.
