UD Lanzarote 3 CD El Cotillo 1

The Rojillos stunning home form continues and with this win against the Fuerteventura side it means Lanzarote have picked up 19 out of a possible 21 points at home this season.

The visitors began the better and in the second minute a cross was swung in from the right which was met with a header from Juanjo but his effort fell straight into the arms of the Lanzarote keeper Agoney.

The Conejeros (locals) slowly got into their stride and the balance of play gradually evened out but it wasn’t until the last minute of the first half that Lanzarote had their first opportunity.

Toñito picked up the ball on the left and flew past his defender and with the outside of his boot swung in a beauty of a low cross to striker Yaco, what seemed an easy task to touch the ball home from five yards eluded the Lanzarote front man as his guided shot went back across the goal and away to safety.

Manager Adolfo Pérez made two changes during the break, bringing on Fellani lookalike Kilian and Italian Andrea replacing Jeremy and the injured Jesus.

The change of personal had an immediate effect, four minutes into the second period and Lanzarote were 1-0 up. Winger Toñito who is having an inspired season ripped his  read more »

Tricky Landing At Arrecife From Boeing 737 Cockpit

Lanzarote generally enjoys a northerly breeze, which means aircraft land over the sea with a pretty straightforward approach. When the wind blows the “wrong” way, however, incoming aircraft have to come in over the mountains, dropping onto the runway just over the main road at Playa Honda. To add complication, there is no instrument landing system from this direction, which means pilots must land the aircraft manually, using instruments when there’s cloud (as it often the case with a southerly wind) and visual references when it clears.

We found this excellent video on You Tube, shot from the jump seat in a Boeing 737 and looking right over the pilot’s shoulder. You can see how high his workload is on the approach,  read more »

A Man Died Trying To Cross The LZ-2 In Lanzarote

A young man was killed in Playa Honda last night, on his way home from work.

LZ2 Lanzarote

Sadly, the 30 year old tried to walk across the busy LZ-2 dual carriageway, which has a 100 km/h limit and was hit by a car travelling in the direction of the airport from Arrecife. The accident happened just after 21:00, there was nothing the Servicio de Urgencias Canario (SUC) emergency services who responded could do, other than confirm the man’s death due to the severity of his injuries.

It’s believed that the deceased was an employee from  read more »

Lanzarote People - Stan Arnold

We wrote about Stan’s books here: Local author Stan Arnold, so we decided to catch up with him recently in Playa Blanca to find out more about him, and to hear his thoughts on Lanzarote.

IMG_1618

Stan is originally from Warrington and he had an interesting and varied career. For many years he toured as part of a rock band, and then he graduated to adding humour into his performances – think Billy Connolly or Jasper Carrot – with a mix of music and amusing stories. At one time he was performing, often at forces bases, 20 nights a month, and also appearing on Radio 4 and occasionally on television. The arrival of alternative comedy in the 1980’s persuaded him it was time to stop performing and to start writing, and he became a successful copywriter, with several large blue chip companies as his clients.

Stan partially retired five years ago, married his then girlfriend and moved to the sunshine of Lanzarote, following a holiday where he fell in love with the island.  read more »
