As we were sort of passing, we pulled into Mindelo Marina in Porto Grande in the Cape Verde Islands for more fuel. On the way in we spoke to a couple of other ARC yachts who gave us information on how/where to get fuel after hours. That sort of friendship has proven commen with our contact with other ARC yachts all along the way. It was only a short stop as we were on our way within a few hours having taken to chance to have dinner together.
This afternoon Ben decided to do some deck cleaning. To be fair the decks needed a clean. The trouble was that with some of the hatches open there was a certain "ingress" of water into one of the aft cabins meaning an early bath for a couple of sleeping bags. Oops! Philip was a close call from asking for the Mr Grumpy T-shirt
