Safe Arrival


Position:  23:06S 044:20W

Date & Time :  16 April 2012 1000 (1300 UTC – 1400 BST)


Mina2 and her crew have arrived safely in the Bahia Ilha Grande. The God of the Winds redeemed himself yesterday, at last, by giving us a really good sail and, like childbirth (so I’m told) all the pain of previous days has now been forgotten.


We’re wending our way between the numerous islands in the bay towards the marina at Angra Dos Reis where we will begin the tortuous process of clearing us and the boat into Brazil. And then we’ll hit the Caipirinhas.


I’ll post another blog in a couple of days with a summary of this, the Greatest Adventure.


Meanwhile thanks to all of you for tuning in.


This is CapTim on the good ship Mina2. Out.
