Please advise me about publications or people with current information about transient boat storage for my Contessa 26 in the Canary Islands. I am doing my first Atlantic return trip from Ireland to Canada. thank you
The best place to start is probably Anne Hammick's book "Atlantic Islands". It's published by Imray and if you go to the PF web site and click on "North Atlantic" you'll see the link. If you have any supplementary questions not covered in the book I could pass them on to Anne. Best wishes,Nick ColemanRCC Pilotage Foundationwww.rccpf.org.uk
Thank you for your reply.
I noted Anne Hammick's book but that it was published in 2004 and based on information available in 2003. I was hoping to obtain something more current.
However, thanks for your information.
I'll ask Anne if she's aware of anything since then that's relevant to you. I'm on my boat in a shed in Denmark right now, and Anne may be at sea. So this may not be quick....Best wishes,Nick ColemanRCC PF
Thanks again. I'll wait! And I'll keep digging for marina contacts in the Canary Islands. I'm tentatively planning for a trip next summer.
Anne’s come back to me saying:
If you’re willing to wait until December the new (5th) edition will be on sale! In the meantime, here's what it contains re laying-up. However I was primarily thinking of larger cruising yachts when I wrote it, and suspect the options for a Contessa 26 might be even wider.
"The number of harbours where a yacht might be laid up ashore, at least for a limited period, has increased dramatically over the past few years. The most obvious choices are: Puerto Calero or Marina Rubicón in Lanzarote; Pasito Blanco, Puerto de Arguineguín, Puerto Rico or Puerto de Mogán in Gran Canaria; Santa Cruz (Varaderos Anaga), Puerto Radazul or Los Cristianos in Tenerife; Puerto Tazacorte in La Palma and Puerto de la Restinga on the south coast of El Hierro. All have powerful travel-lifts and a reasonable amount of hardstanding but they vary greatly in the level of facilities and security available – and in cost. Refer to the text for further information.
There is even more choice if wishing to lay-up afloat, at least for a month or two, though space is likely to present the greatest problem and not all marinas accept advance bookings. Currently the choice would probably comprise: Puerto Calero or Marina Rubicón in Lanzarote); Gran Tarajal in Fuerteventura; Las Palmas, Pasito Blanco, Puerto Rico or Puerto de Mogán in Gran Canaria; Marina Santa Cruz, Marina Tenerife, Puerto Radazul, Puerto Deportivo La Galera, Marina San Miguel or Marina del Sur in Tenerife; San Sebastián de la Gomera; and Marina La Palma or Puerto Tazacorte in La Palma. Again costs and facilities vary and further information will be found in the text."
Anne also said that, if you have the previous edition and don't want to invest in the new one, the 2010 supplement (she was too busy with the new edition to update it this year) ought to be available on both the PF and Imray websites some time yet.
