It's been a couple of weeks since our last update, and we have done and seen so much! Lots more time in Morocco, and then a passage to the Canary Islands.
We had a wonderful time in Tangiers, Morocco and spent a week getting acquainted with all that city had to offer. The Medina (old town) was amazing and there was a huge variety of local crafts people that were available to help us make/fix things that we needed for the boat. The sites, smells and sounds of the old town were beautiful.
Oyai was all tucked into the modern marina in Tangiers. We met many folks from other cruising boats here as well. We were all waiting for good weather to head south to the Canary Islands.
We will now be in the Canary Islands for about 3 weeks while we wait for the start of our rally that will take us across the vast Atlantic Ocean. We have signed up for the ARC 2022, a rally that has 200 boats participating. We will all cross the Atlantic together and have many social events in Las Palmas (on Grand Canary) prior to the start of the sailing. The kids are really looking forward to hanging out with other kids. Stu and Lana are very interested in the instructional seminars offered on all topics sailing. There is also happy hour, a costume party and many other social events. It should be awesome!
