Tenerife, Gran Canaria

After a rocky start, the island of Tenerife proved to be worth the confusion over our berth. For our port program, we drove for an hour and a half to Playa Los Americanos to go surfing! Because of a forecasted storm, the port program was changed so that all students went surfing on the same day in two shifts rather than over two days as previously planned. There were high winds, but that didn’t stop people from having a great time. For the remaining days ashore, people enjoyed going to the world famous water park on the island, hiking in the mountains, riding the gondola up the volcano, going out to see the new Hunger Games movie, and most importantly, calling home for the last time before we set sail for 23-days across the Atlantic. In preparation for the crossing, a new stay-sail was put up in place of our schooner gaff sail. Now underway, all aboard are excited for South America and the fast approach of Christmas at sea.
