UD Lanzarote 2 Villa Santa Brigida 2

Last season this game ended in a spectacular 4-4 draw and from the opening minute it looked as though we were in for another wonder match. The first half was superb but with the temperature in the 30´s the game inevitably slowed but was still highly competitive till the end.

All-smiles-as-Rosmen-gives-his-side-a-2-1-lead

The Gran Canarian outfit who were for many years a regular in Segunda B (League 1) alongside Lanzarote were paying absolutely no respect for Lanzarote´s 22 match unbeaten home run and were threatening on the counter attack.

In the 11th min striker Santi broke through the centre of the Rojillo defence and it was a race between the striker and the Lanzarote keeper Agoney to who would get their first.  There was contact, absolutely no doubt about that but Lanzarote did argue that Agoney did touch the ball. The end result was a penalty for the visitors but just a yellow card for Agoney. Nobody argued from either side but had this been a poorer Ref it could have been a sending off the Lanzarote keeper. Great decision Ref.

Defender Carreño fired with precision to give his side the early 0-1 advantage. This goal sparked Lanzarote into action and produced a first half which easily matched last season’s incredible game. Marcos Cabrera, Vladi and Brad began to stamp their authority in midfield whilst Rosmen showed what a great target man he is and for a big lad he is wonderful with his control and has unexpected quick feet.

In the 19th minute Toñito had a good effort blocked but just three minutes later Lanzarote were level. A free kick from the right was whipped in by  read more »

Puerto Calero's Big Sport Fishing Competition - Tono's Story

We have a huge sport fishing competition every year here in Lanzarote, called Concurso de Pesca Altura, and it is based at the marina in Puerto Calero. It’s known unofficially as The Marlin cup. Last year we were delighted when our friend Paul, who runs Lanzarote Fishing, and his boat Tono, won the trophy.

Concurso

Earlier this year, Tono was almost destroyed in a fire (all the crew members were safely rescued,) and nobody knew if she could be repaired in time to defend her title. Paul, his crew and their friend Kenny worked tirelessly to bring Tono back from the ashes, and the boat proudly motored out  read more »

Try Snorkelling In Lanzarote

There’s a whole world under the sea that opens up when you try snorkelling, and you can do it at any of the beaches in Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca. We have plenty to see, and very few species you’d want to avoid!

The Kit

Set

All you need is some good fins, a quality mask and a snorkel. Invest in decent gear, because whilst you can buy cheapie stuff, the masks leak, and the fins are often too small and floppy to get decent drive in the water. Go for a mask with a silicon, rather than rubber seal. To check the fit put it on your face, without the strap and “suck.” The mask should stay in place. Go for a long snorkel, so that waves lapping don’t enter the tube, and the fins should be stiff and fit the feet well. The longer the fins, the faster you’ll move, but also remember they need more work, so you will  read more »

Surfing In Lanzarote

So last weekend saw the return of the annual ´fiesta´ to La Santa. A celebration of the Virgen del Carmen fills this normally quiet little village with people, cars, hot dog stalls and loud music. It looks like they're all having a great time, but for those of us who enjoy the calm refuge of our own homes, and the possibility of sleep before 4am, it's a bit much! I might feel differently if it was live rock music, but I'm afraid that the playlist just wasn't my cup of tea. This year, we managed to escape and spend the nights well out of earshot. These two nights in July are the only two nights of the year when I don't appreciate living in La Santa, but it's a small price to pay.
