It's already been a few days since we left Lanzarote, and we decided,
together with just a handful of other boats, to head south and aim to catch
the trade winds sooner.
So far our choice is not paying off, as the lull is extending way south of
Tenerife and we are very slowly progressing S / SW. The quiet winds did not
prevent us from getting a bit of excitement when a squall hit us and we saw
a number of 'baby waterspouts' starting to form, which luckily did not
touch the water. We even managed to take a few good pictures.
Otherwise all is good on board Hatha Maris, enjoying the supply of fresh
fruit and veggies until they last, and the crew has slipped into the daily
watch routine and the only thing that is missing is some good wind to take
