06 Mar Strong wind
6 March 2019
We left Santo Antão, São Vicente and carnival behind and we are on our way to São Nicolau. The forecasted 5 Bft was more like 7 Bft and in the channel between São Vicente and Santo Antão it was even 8 Bft. We bravely tried to leave the channel on the north side, but that was too difficult, so we decided to leave the channel on the south side.
But even here on the open ocean without the venture-effect between the islands there is still a strong 7 Bft wind. Although the sun makes it seem more friendly it is pretty rough. For now, we sail clause hauled in more or less the right direction and we hope that the wind will decide to keep it to its forecast.
