All day sailing – wow!


Figueira to Cascais may only be 45nm but it does include rounding Cabo Roca, the western most point of mainland Europe and we sailed the whole way under cruising chute.

After two days mainly motoring, what a relief to be able to sail all day.  We are now anchored off the town of Cascais from where we intend to visit Lisbon, by train.
