Abrolhos is probably a beautiful place. It is, however, a little difficult to see when it is raining and blowing hard. Where we were the diving was not that good either. The wind was more useful for sailing than for enjoying the reefs. Yesterday morning we were off for Salvador.
Seven hours of perfect sailing, then 12 hours of calm. Now the wind is picking up again as we gradually get into the trade winds. We hope for a good sail up to Salvador.
And the whales? Yes, we did see quite few humpback whales north of Abrolhos as well including some males trying to impress each other with tale slapping and other antics.
