At Praia Vasco da Gama we anchored and had a real nice evening and a nice barbeque. Next morning we left, heading for an anchorage at Arrifana.  The wind had picked up we hoisted the spinnaker. Also the swell picked up and by the time we entered the bay, the swell was what the pilot book said what it usually is … making this  bay the place to be for surfers! The boat was swinging like a roller coaster but the waves were spectacular!! Rutger regretted very much not to have taken his surfboard with him. I for sure didn’t want to stay here for the night, the anchor alarm kept going off and the rocks looked scarry. So we decided to move on after dinner and head to Lagos.
