We left Mindelo yesterday just before noon and to be fair to the engine it did get us out, but as soon as the swell picked up, it started misbehaving. Ian seem to have narrowed the issue to fuel supply, which is much better than a head gasket replacement.
We enjoyed Mindelo, having been there eight years ago. A lot of development has happened in the meantime and the town seem to be prospering.
We now have a long stint at sea. I hope to be in Cape Town around the 29th November but it all depends on our passage through the doldrums and the position of the St Helena high weather system. Fingers crossed that they will be favourable.
It's very hot here atm. 32 degrees centigrade in the boat.
