I intend to leave on the afternoon tide tomorrow and head for Tenerife. That is a good thing as there has been a festival here in Rota this weekend. Not only is it pretty noisy on Reboot but it is pretty tempting to just go down and mingle with the crowd - which is of course what I did.
I wandered into an open air Salsa club and had a great time just watching the dancing. I also hosted a crew of Air Force guys who where stopping over in Rota on their way home after several months in Qutar. We had a good time swapping stories.
Festival means that every woman in Rota from 18 to 80 is dressed to the nines and down in the festival area (which happens to be right in front of the marina. No jeans, all pretty dresses or shorts outfits. Quite a difference from what I am used to in the US.
Fair winds and following seas. I will be filing position reports as the technology alows. It will take 6 to 8 days to get to Tenerife.
