It is approximately another 80 miles to go to reach the nothern island of Lanzarote – Alegranza. I am still a bit too fast but let´s see what the wind game will be tonight. Worst case I stop and throw the fishing line. There are no warning messages issued on Navtex for sailors about actual drifting refugee boats in this particular area, so perhaps I might take part of the final leg still in the dark for an earlier arrival in Puerto Calero. The other condition in mind is that the wind and waves shall further decrease second half of tomorrow, which makes the approach into the marina easier for a sleepy sailor on arrival. It will all depend on the actual conditions but a plan is at least a plan. An old saying goes that we sailors only write our plans at low tides into the sand, they will last until the next high tide!
