The five Barbados 50 yachts that left Lisbon on 25th August arrived in Lanzarote after a good sail south towards the Canary Islands.

Their departure from Lisbon permitted them  to enjoy the spectacular Lisbon scenery as they sailed down the Tagus River, past the impressive Monument of Discovery in Belem, the symbolic starting point of many famous voyages of discovery.

Good progress was made from there en route to the Canaries with the winds consistently northerly force 4-5. 

Lady Rebel and Stormbreaker were the first to arrive on 29th August, followed the following day by Maryna II, Maisie and White Ibis.

The yachts enjoyed a friendly welcome from those Barbados 50 yachts which were already in Marina Lanzarote, such as Gloria and Witte Kreeft.
