Departure from Cape Verde


Departure at 1300 from Cape Verde in splendid sunshine. 74 boats crossing the starting line in the bay and of we were. The first 7 hours, all boats were within sight and fewer and fewer was visible on the Ais during the night. The night was very quiet and we did decide to motor for 8 hours to find the find this morning around six o’clock. Now we are flying the genakker and the crew is finding its sea leg in slightly confused seas.
Position is 16 deg 40 N 27 deg 00 W and cog is 281 and sog is 4 kn.
Life is good now we are back at sea.
Greetings from the North Star crew
