02 Jan A few quiet days
2 January 2023
And we also got those few quiet days! The wind continued to die down and the ocean became calmer and calmer. Because the waves disappeared, the gaffs didn’t go back and forth too wildly and, in the end, we sailed at a speed of less than two knots. When the wind completely died down, we only hoisted the square rigging. And slowly the wind returned. We are now making a speed of around 6 to 7 knots again. Cape Verde is now quickly approaching and if it continues like this, we will arrive at Sal tonight, a day earlier than planned. What more could we wish for? Oh yes, that fish. And that also turned out well with the capture of a beautiful Mahi Mahi.
