    The Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

    Saharan Sandstorm Plays Havoc In Lanzarote

    The Dreaded ‘Calima’

    While the huge swell and big breeze gusting up to 26 knots was certainly proving a challenge to the sailors, it was the ‘calima’, the dreaded Saharan dust carried on a strong easterly wind, that forced a halt to racing.
