Final preparations for the Atlantic crossing and time to paint the rocks!

Whilst still being busy with an endless list of things to sort, check or do on the boat, the end is very nearly in sight and we made time to join the tradition of painting the rocks in Las Palmas marina with our boat emblem.

The boys painted their own dolphins and we joined up with our friends aboard Pearl and Pacific Pearl to have a painting party and BBQ on the sea wall. The children had a hoot.

One last full nights sleep before we are off tomorrow and the next 18+ days of sailing and shift patterns. Huge amazing thanks to Paul Grundy for kindly joining us on the Atlantic crossing to share the fun, shifts and adventure! (Even bigger thanks to Jo and family for letting him join us for a bit 😊⚓️⛵️🙏). And big thanks for Mac (Grandad) being here to see us off and help with the children whilst we have sorted everything this week. It’s been fantastic.

Time for an early night.
