Hi all, quick update. We left Cascais yesterday & sailed 50 miles to Sines the wind was perfect and we were smashing out 7 knots for about 6-7 hours. It picked up quite a bit toward the end and moved around to front of the boat so it did get a little uncomfortable as we were heeling over quite a bit!
It look about 10 hours in total and we arrived in the anchorage where Shavora was already waiting! Shortly after our friend Paul turned up on Falcons Flight and we invited him over dinner as he arrived quite late, so thought he would appreciate a warm dinner waiting for him! This would also be the last time we saw each other as he was heading down to The Algarve.
So now we are just waiting for a good weather window to cross to Gran Canaria as it isn’t worth going any further down Portugal. We are planning to cross with Shavora as we feel doing it together will provide some moral support! Hopefully we’ll be able to let you know when we leave ….. Watch this space!
P.s Simon also lost his phone in the oggin while walking Scrumpy so it is currently swimming with the fishes along with our sun shower that was left on the deck when we left Cascais!
