Sailing the Coast of Africa

Leaving at 2 in the morning, this was our Sunrise leaving the Sraights
Straight of Gibraltar and Atlantic Ocean---We have decided to stop in Morocco if we can get into the Marina there. This will be a two night watch and now with three adults, I am looking forward to the adjusted watch times: 2 hours on, 4 hours off, much better than 3 and 3.

We hugged the coast of Spain and then Portugal until we needed to turn South and cross the straight. This felt EXACTLY like when I got on the wrong side of a 4 lane highway in Cape Town, South Africa (Post XXX). There was a line of cargo ships ahead and you couldn't tell if they were moving or stopped, after studying each, we had to decide how to weave our way to the other side of the staight.
