Results Lanzarote Santa Pro Kite

The Isla de Lanzarote La Santa Pro Kite got off to a slow start whilst waiting for the right weather conditions, the competition finally started on Saturday 9th April 2011.

Extreme Elements posted this video of the day which includes Soufianne Hamaini exploring the landscape and taking tapas in Teguise, Kari Schibevaag on Famara beach and Keahi De Aboitiz enjoying surfing some incredible waves – looks like his stubbed toe didn’t hold him back as he went on the win the competition!


On Thursday despite the light forecast, the winds were gusting up to 40 knots  read more »

CEIP Costa Teguise

CEIP Costa Teguise is the primary school for the area, and has a great reputation amongst Canarians and the many ex pats whose children spend their days there.

The teachers and kids made a terrific video to showcase the school and to give people a virtual guided tour of the facilities there.

Michelle from Lanzarote Retreats sent me the link as she has two children still at the school.

It looks like a fun place!

There’s plenty more to come from us on the subject, but I thought I’d post some of the initial email responses from friends who took the time and trouble to reply to me:

In Lanzarote there hasn’t been any Royal Wedding fever. I’m not expecting any street parties or to see china cups on sale adorned with images of Willam and Kate but I know there are some Royal Family fans out there and would like to reach out to any businesses in Lanzarote who are embracing the big day on 29th April 2011.

Lanzarote Football, Villa Santa Brigida 1 Lanzarote 0

4th April 2011

After over four and a half months the Rojillos get their first taste of defeat away from home against a rejuvenated Villa Sta Brígida.

The Gran Canarian side is only three points off a play off spot following their third win on the bounce against league leaders U.D. Lanzarote.

UD Lanzarote team 030411

Both sides began the match positively with the home team edging possession and chances at goal. In the 26th minute Rojillos manager Quico de Diego was forced to replace goalkeeper Alejandro with Ruymán following an injury sustained as the Lanzarote keeper was injured during a poor clearance.

In the 38th minute the home side broke the deadlock with a strike from midfielder Héctor Figuerao and only a minute later the locals should have doubled their advantage. Striker David Figuerao found himself inside the box with just the keeper to beat. The replacement keeper stretched and finger tipped the strikers effort away for a corner.
