São Nicolau

After São Vicente and Santo Antão we went to São Nicolau. This island has a fierce, dry exterior but a beautiful lush interior. The island is usually one of the favorites of our guests (and crew). After the tour on the island we had a quiet night. A few went ashore for a local drink, most of us stayed on board and turned in early. 
This morning we hoisted the anchor early, so we would be in perfect position during breakfast, so we could sail. Our goal was Boa Vista which we usually can’t reach in one go so we left early to get as high as possible. Now all sails are up, and we can sail. We try to steer as high as possible. Tonight, we will know if we stayed high enough, otherwise we have to switch the engine on for the last part.
