The sun, the moon, the stars and Olina went west. It was a lovely journey over the Atlantic ocean to Brazil, the best sail ever!!!!! Arriving at the entrance of the river and reaching the port of Belem was a little tricky but here I am happily in Marino Publica do Belem.
I am in a very busy port, well, at anchor outside but it is just as crowded. 250 boats are going to sail to Santa Lucia and they are all arriving for the race. The ARC, is the name of the competition, and it is kind of fun to see so many sailors together. Right now I am at “Sailors bar” which is the hang out here.
After the beautiful and tranquil Madeira this is feeling somewhat weird but I will get used to it.
Madeira, a wonderful island in a the Atlantic ocean. Friendly people, windy, green, full of flowers and fruits, can it get any better? This is a place one could hang around for along time. Canaries has to wait, this is too beautiful to leave in a hurry.
This is a photo that the Guardia Civil took as they flew over with an helicopter. On my facebook “eva7seas” account you can find some more pictures from this “adventure”. Please don´t worry about me, because everything went just fine due to all the magnificent people that populate this wonderful world. Thank you! Gracias a todos!
After a long nights sail I did something I am not proud about……I fell asleep. Have a look at the news http://www.abc.es/videos-espana/20130710/velero-encallado-orilla-playa-2538273761001.html
