After 6 days and 6 nights non stop rolling on waves at sea at finally we are safe on anchor in very very windy Cape Verde island Sal ! We arrived day 10 in the evening. Now we are still tired and recovering lack of sleep, but happy to be in these African islands again. All went very fine...... Grain de Sable proved us how good boat it is and Bimbache showed that he don't care harbour or sea - while there is food and warm place in bed with us he is very very OK. So this time just this short resume, but we promise we will write another more detailed post about the trip soon.
This is a story about our life journey or better said is a story about our life afloat a sailing boat. Our trips, our adventures, our challenges and problems found on the way,,our everyday life floating and our unforgettable moments of sailing and tasting the worldl!
