Canaries – Cape Verde passage report

The Skipper wishes to thank Wim, Carl and Justin for a great and enjoyable 830 nautical miles passage from Las Galletas to Mindelo in just 4 days and 20 hours! Winds were constantly gusting between 20 and 36 knots from NE. Eskalope handled everything with all the grace of an old lady. And this Lady is not for turning! 🙂OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Chef and the Master makes sure that we have all the food we need. We had to pull in this skipjack tuna with nothing but our bare hands and a gaff. The line got tangled up in the wind generator!

  1. Kapp Verde…..det er sĂ„ langt unna. Ikke sĂ„ lenge siden vi snakka sammen pĂ„ KrĂ„kerĂžy. Og maten hentes rett over ripa, spennende. En skikkelig sjefschef du har om bord skjĂžnner jeg :). Timersgammel sashami – fantastisk. Ta mange bilder. Jeg vil se :). Er Lone og Jungmann kommet?

  2. Jul pĂ„ Kapp Verde – en annerledes Jul – men sikkert spesiell og flott. Jeg hĂ„per i hvert fall det blir slik for dere. Det er ikke mye som minner om trad jul her; regn og plussgrader. Gleder meg til Ă„ se bilder fra Kapp Verde. Hils alle 🙂
