We have arrived in Mindelo, Sao Vincente-Cape Verdes Islands. We were 8.5 days and 8 nights at sea having left Fuerteventura on Thursday 29th January around 9.30am. Since then we’ve put behind us 979 sea miles, our longest passage to date. Alfi turned one yesterday to boot! We are elated, exhausted, exhilarated and looking forward to a good rest. The passage was intense-the details to follow. We are safe and well and send you all salty love.

    Well done guys you did well avoiding the dying breeze. Typically this week coming looks like ideal stronger winds between Canaries & Verdes! Enjoy your time ashore and good luck for the main crossing. xx Ian, Mary, Morgan & Laylu

    Well done! Philippa and family, I am a second cousin of your mother and we too are sailors. We live in Rome and sail the Tyrrehnian sea mainly, Ionian over to Greece and over to Tunisia, but never ventured any further. So it’s good to follow you and we certainly understand the joys and pains of your adventure! All the very best Monica
