Mindelo to Cabedelo, Brazil took 12 and half days with only a couple of windless days through the Doldrums.
The welcome at Jacare Marina included showers, cold beer, locally caught fish and hand cut chips! very well received.
We pushed on after a couple of days, filling with water, diesel and topping up on fresh supplies. Calling into Vitoria, then Niterio the forgotten city opposite Rio de Janerio. Again only spending a couple of days recovering and celebrating Simon’s Birthday, or was it celebrating then recovering!
Last port of call in Brazil was Porto Belo for fuel, the final hop of 600nm to Piriapolis, Uruguay, went well a couple of super sailing days and nights with fantastically clear skies, shooting stars. The wild life included Jackass Penguins, Orcas, Dolphins, Albatross, Turtle, Seals, really rounding off a smooth trip.
Thanks to Simon aka Chalky for all your help. A couple of days relaxing in Piriapolis then the three day journey to get back to Kodiak Island, Alaska. Where Arctic Tern has been looked after so well, big thanks to Mike.
Here we are now preparing her for our Alaskan Summer……..
