Atlantic Crossing – Day 7… Land Ahoy
In the last 24 hours – 167 miles covered
A flying fish and squid were discovered on deck this morning, and we were again treated to another dolphin display. The kitchen is a hive of activity with Debs making Banana Bread and Nev on a Roasted Veggi Pie.
Great excitement in the air as we spotted the mountains of Cape Verde, and a loud cry of “Land Ahoy” went up from the Bridge.
Two issues for us to fix in Mindelo include a hole in the new Mainsail due to chaffing and a receiving problem with our AIS aerial. Otherwise, we’re all looking forward to stepping off onto land and enjoying a meal out.
Skipper Says…”Beers tonight are on me!” Whoop Whoop. And we’ve also had an invitation from J-Squared for a Rum Punch with them too. I think we’re going to be enjoying this little pit stop!
Time of arrival into Mindelo was 1510 local time. Perfect!
