We left Fernando do Noronha on Thursday night at 8.30pm after a BBQ on Meshugga. Lovely sail overnight and midday we gently sailed a mile offshore around the Marine Reserve of Ilha do Rocas. We were not able anchor, dive, fish or go ashore, but it was lovely to see and we had quite a few sea birds come inspect us. We also saw a turtle off Meshugga. We continued to sailed onto Brazil Mainland, and arrived at Forteleza at 8am on Sunday 12 Feb.  We are moored med style in the Marina Park Hotel Marina. No walk-on, no electricity. Just a few pylons in the water to tie to.  We hope to get a few repairs done in Fortaleza before we head north across the equator and onto more normal cruising grounds.
