on NB

just passing Heiro, Islas Canarias, on our port side,

No stopping- sigh. We passed close to the two islands on the western edge of the Canaries, but no visit.
East of here on the mainland is Western Sahara, a disputed territory, which I got to visist as part of S05X under the authority of the RASD, the Sahrawi government in exile.
We're headed south to catch the trade winds west, eventually, but for now the winds are from the NW. The tween decks is occupied with sailmaking, and I'll make an attempt to repair a drill press for my work party project.
