We have just arrived in Cascais. This is the first place we have actually crossed our wake from the outward journey. In 2006 we refuelled here and set off for the Canaries. Only 12 years!


Short hop made even shorter by 3 kts of tide with us. Tried, and just failed, to record a 2 digit speed c/ engine full on; just got to 9.5 SOG. C remembers this place, I have yet to. We can’t claim a true circumnavigation because we avoided the Somali pirates with a transport from Thailand to Turkey.
