Canaria Islands, Tenerife.
One week turning around the sail boats in the marina of Tenerife.
The 24 boats from the Rallye des iles du soleil have arrived from Madeira and are crossing the Atlantic via Dakar and Cape Verde. Planned for long, this particular event is marking the start of the season for crossing for many boats afterward. 4500 kms of bike have been made in 3 months with this in my mind in order to arrive on time and to offer my services on board as a crew member on the differents boats.
Its done, I made it, and ITS ALL ON!!! Maybe, the bike is forr something into this, apparently it seems that adventure spirit is well appreciated here naround, because I have now not only 1 but THREE boats including 2 catamarans, and a monocoque of 16 meters longs, which offers me to get on board. Me anf of course my fidel companion, Le Baroudeur, still alive.
I will be then on the boat SELYA, brand new catamaran made with Kevlar and carbon, from Tenerife to Dakar (6 days), then the NICIA 2 from Dakar to Cape Verde and on BRISE DU SUD from Cape Verde to Brasil.
Funny gadjet, you can follow the whereabouts of the boats on the website of the rallye: www.ilesdusoleil.eu
