In Portugal I got caught in new experiences, meeting people and adventures so I didn’t have time to Blog. Then the website got hacked and was not usable for some longer period. So hence the long silence… Thanks to Emiel Klein Ovink the website is up and running again though.
The latest news is that I am at Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. The past couple of weeks my brother Paul and I were preparing and ugrading the ship for the ocean crossing. Tomorrow morning we will be of to Mindelo on Sao Vincente – Cabo Verdes. It is over 850 NM Sailing (1650 km). The wind prognosis is fairly good so I expect a quick crossing – some 6 days or so. We bought a big Sea Fishing Rod so we are going to try to catch some big Tuna or Mahi Mahi!
The Cabo Verdes are poor so if internet permits I will send my new blog there. Also I will try to get my Sailmail Modem Working so I can blog anywhere in the world 🙂
See ya Soon!
