we brought a new yacht

Recommended Posts

now in Cape Verde, Mindelo, nice 900nm sail here, all downwind, about 1 day of motoring and 5.5 days to get here, had to slow down on the last night to 5kn to arrive in daylight. 

there are quite a few sunken fishing trawlers in the bay that are unlit, great anchoring/holding though, well go in the marina tomorrow and stock up ready for the Atlantic crossing. currrent weather pattern looks like taking 12-14 days. but will be taking it easy so maybe longer.

now in Cape Verde islands, Mindelo, nice town/city, industrial port but nice people and friendly/ very tidy. anchored out with good holding for a few days but into marina tomorrrow for stock up and then setting off over Atlantic. took 5.5 days from Canaries to here, 900nm easy down wind sailing with about a day of motoring in the middle. slowed down to 5 knots on last night to arrive in daylight as there are many sunken fishing hulks/vessels in the bay to avoid.

Well done and congrats on the transatlantic!

Everyone I’ve met on a world cruise has said the Med and the S Pac ate the best bits so don’t hesitate the Panama.

But Black Panther has intimate knowledge of the Dominic Republic and the general area you’re in so he might drop a golden nugget suggestion.
