Waiting for the right wind

We’ve been anchored off La Linea (next to Gibraltar’s runway) since last Monday, watching the weather files everyday and growing constantly more nervous. Today’s forecast for the next week looks perfect so we’ll set sail for the strait tomorrow early in the morning to catch the right current to get us through to the Atlantic. Cross your fingers for us!!
We added some pictures of “The Rock” and La Linea in another gallery.

Gibraltar, door to the Atlantic

We waited several days for the right weather for our passage to the Canaries.
