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!

Snart gÄr turen videre mot Kapp Verde. Alskens utsatte vedlikeholdsprosjekter mÄ plutselig realiseres! NÄ er mast til vindmÞlle sveiset og montert, venter bare pÄ selve mÞlla og elektrisk tilkobling. Men lista stopper ikke der!
Bare Ä stÄ pÄ nÄ! :$
