Big Blue leaves Tarfaya

5 Comments

Big Blue left Tarfaya at about 8PM GMT on 15th January. They are on their way to the record. They are moving at 4.7 to 5.1 knots at the moment. They dumped about 1000 pounds (weight) worth of stuff and there are some very happy locals. They dumped tools and stainless hardware that they did not need and lots of the heavy drink mix that was on the boat. Angela is confident there is plenty of food on board for the whole crew. She has always been right on with food on her other 3 rows. The quick return to the sea hopefully will keep them all from getting sea sick again.
