Too much wind to put the sails up, then after we
managed to get the main up reefed, the wind died completely, so had to motor
briefly. Reached peninsula - rounded the corner then a 24 hour sail with
two reefs in the main and gusts up to 60kph, so moderate sea state. Boat
Saturday morning saw all the wind go. Putting up
the genoa slowed us down to 1.9 knots. Gave up and motored the final bit of the
way. Boiling hot - from full oilies and wellies to deckshoes and shorts.

Anchored off Lagos.
Swimming off the boat. Aggressive locals in poer
