Las Palmas toward Mindelo, Day 7, Friday January 4

Fri 4 Jan 2013 16:49
Position 16:53.202N 024:59.469W
Our timing was good as we arrived at our waypoint North of Mindelo at about 08.00 just as it was getting light, five minutes later mountains appeared out of the haze. We were then guided in for a while by a school (pod?) of dolphins and by 13.30 we were safely moored up in Mindelo Marina with 886 miles on the log.  Crew and vessel were in good shape and on first sight Mindelo looks very interesting.
