Farewell Tenerife (aka "We are sailing, we are sailing...")




We have finally sailed! Following a final life boat drill to make sure evryone was on board, we left the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife at around 1pm today (Saturday 31st) to the sound of a lone trumpeter who always greats us and sends us off from Tenrife with a rendition of various hymns.

We are heading towards Benin now, with an estimated sailing time of 9.5 days.
