Departure from Baiona (by Captain Anne-Flore Gannat)

The departure from Baiona went smooth.

The harbor puller dinghy was not ready when we were, so I decided to go on our own propeller device with the anchor ready as a plan B.
Mikael turned the ship around in the harbor and pushed the transom to get some forward speed for maneuverability.

The bay of Baiona looked gorgeous in the warm colors of the sunset.  The Dinghy was brought on board at twilight moving phosphorescent plankton when all sails were set.

The open sea welcomed us another time and gave us room to proceed. Night breeze took an hour to come and we could ride fast down the south.
The nights are bright with the moon going along. This is the down wind jibing cruise. A bit rolling though.

Here we come La Palma, for your rum and the bananas…
