Last few things

Engine is fixed and serviced, we are shopping for the last of the fresh produce and after taking on fuel and water tomorrow morning we will be off for the shake down sail to the Las Perlas islands which are about 35 miles away. First stop is Isla Contadora. This is a 35 mile day sail and will be a useful introduction to sailing this ketch. It is a very well equipped boat with mainsail in mast reefing and a furling headsail. Both these have all electric winches which is a new thing for me. We will do a second day sail within the Las Perlas and providing that goes well we will be off to the Galapagos, which is about 1000 miles and around a 10 day sail. More news later.
