We arrived at 18:42 local time, sun had just gone down, bay was pitch black, just dotted with the lights of anchor boats and the backdrop of Mindelo town shoreline. We were guided in by the ARC+ team by a flashing handheld torch to our berth.
We tied up, plugged into the power and literally ran up the pontoon to join the welcoming party!
The next morning with hangovers in tow, we started to get the boat straight, lessons learnt on what should have been stowed better for this kind of voyage.
We now have another two days of refueling, stocking up on provisions and getting ready for our trip “across the pond” to St Lucia
