We tried (but not very focused) sailing all around Gran Canaria island a couple of weeks ago. Now, we know we can, but I would say we have to be very focused. Winds and sea is not very friendly in the very east and very west point of the island. This time we did very well the west part. My AI flipped last year in this side. On the other hand, we had to use our mirage drive many hours the second day, in the south/east, south and south/west until we found the wind. After a couple of hours of sailing and enjoying we couldn´t sail upwind anymore: the strong wind, the sea current were too strong. We had to beach our Tis just a couple of minutes from home. I took the easy way: pack everything and have a good rest at home :oops: Maybe next time.

This is the first day video. Sorry, I didn´t speak much in english this time

Cavendish62 ... you make the BEST sailing videos. Thank you so much. I love watching them! One day I will buy a AI (I have a i14T) but until then I will live vicariously through you!

fortunetly, we are a few friends now sailing our TI´s and AI´s, we have several projects in mind and one of them is taking our boats to other islands, also to "fuerteventura" and "isla de lobos" but, exactly, you know how the waves are around!

thanks very much! I do enjoy when others enjoy my vids, I try my best to show how great these boats are for enjoying and having adventures! it is great to hear it, thanks again. By the way, I was very close to buy the i14t instead of the AI, a friend of mine made me change my mind and finally...
