We have been waking up late in the morning every morning. This morning I noticed that sunrise was at about 7:45 Canary Island time which is UTC+!. It finally dawned on me that UTC+! is the time in Spain. We are at 16 W. That is in the UTC-1 time zone from the standpoint of longitude. Thus, the sun actually rose at about 5:45 "sun" time.
I didn't think I was sleeping that well.
Fair winds and following seas.
