Richard has finally managed to leave the UK to collect Rosalba from La Palma, and has now left the Harbour of Tazacorte bound for England.  A German sailing friend,  Frank Sturm,  is sailing with him and Richard is extremely grateful to him and Pat Bertrand for all their help with Rosalba in Punta Delgada and then again in the  Canaries.  Richard is hoping for a 12 day voyage but as always it will depend on the weather. Currently there are very light winds west of La Palma but he is hoping to find a medium westerly breeze to the north west in a couple of days.
