A new Saturday Sailing Club for children is starting at the marina in Puerto Calero with Endeavour Sailing.
For the first time in Lanzarote, children aged from 8 years old will be able to experience the exhilaration of learning to sail in a J80. Keelboat training is exciting, it has all the thrills of dinghy sailing but combined with the stability of a yacht, it’s a must for anyone wanting to learn how to sail.
The J80’s are amazing boats, at 8 metres long they offer great stability, so no capsizing! Tuition will be given by trained RYA Keelboat instructors with a student to instructor ratio of 4:1. Plus the keelboats are read more »
It has been five long months since the Rojillos tasted victory on the road but thanks to an assist by British lad Louis Kennedy and a finish from Yaco late on, that terrible statistic has come to an end.
After last week’s disappointing home defeat Rojillos manager Adolfo Pérez decided to introduce two junior players into the starting line up, defender Acaymo and striker Echedey Gómez.
The Tenerife side one place above Lanzarote prior to the match began the better of the two sides. The Rojillos defence was strong but upfront only looked dangerous on set pieces. The visitors were content with the game scoreless going into the half time break.
The home side kept up the same tempo in the second period but as Lanzarote grew in confidence as they began to claw their way into the game.

Yaiza´s debut season in the Tercera Division (Fourth tier) is proving to be a good one. On a horrendous windy day they blew away Lanzarote early in the first half and in doing so completed the double over their more illustrious neighbours with their 3-1 home win earlier on in the season.
The opening stages of the match were evenly balanced with both sides committed to winning the ball. In the 12 minute British boy Kennedy was put through the centre but just as he struck the ball the defender pulled back the winger ever so slightly but it was enough for Kennedy to stretch and sky the ball over the bar.
Two minutes later and good build up play for Yaiza set up midfielder Dani who struck the ball low and hard from just inside the area into the corner of the net giving our southern friends a 0-1 lead.
The visitors had another fantastic opportunity to double their advantage just a couple of minutes later. Striker Antonio Yeray let rip from the edge of the box and it was only a brilliant save from Rojillos keeper Agoney that prevented the visitors taking a two goal lead.
Lanzarote did press but read more »

The Rojillos third home win on the bounce sees them flying clear of the relegation zone by 12 points with goals from midfielders Echedey and Marcos Cabrera.
U.D. Telde are in a relegation battle and began the match four points from the drop zone and were desperate to take something home to Gran Canaria with them. Surprisingly they began the match well, testing the Lanzarote keeper, Agoney on a couple of occasions and were not shy to bring men forward.
Gradually Lanzarote came into the game with midfielders Jotha and Marcos Cabrera dominating midfield. Nevertheless the Rojillos had to be patient as Telde got men behind the ball when they lost possession.
Some wonderful passing from Jotha sent winger Toñito on his way down the right flank as he was on one of his good days and constantly terrorized the visitors defence.
Lanzarote began to get a hold of the match and their patience was rewarded a few minutes before read more »
