Day off.

Washing, shopping, hardware store (of course), search for a new ballast and how to repair the winch, and of course of few beers.

Taking advantage of the peace that reigns onboard, we invite Suso Trujillo Rodríguez, Councillor of the Environment in the City Hall of Agüimes . This local government has requested, through plenary agreement, the designation of a Marine Reserve in Arinaga three times (in 1996, 2000 and 2006).

We talked about the area and he gave us various copies of a book about the Arinaga Marine Reserve. We showed him our work and the discoveries we made during the expedition. All the information we are compiling will be very useful for him as councillor to achieve the official designation of the marine reserve.
