Atlantic crossing

Another message from Matt Gilbert on board yacht OofleDust. If you also have a look at the website mentioned below there are some pictures.


Day 8.  Sailed south as far as Cape Verde Islands where we stopped for 18 hours.

Now 36 hours out of Cape Verde heading west, but wind has died and we’ve been motoring for the past 24 hours, forecast suggests it may be another day before the wind comes back. 1800 miles approx to go.

Weather overcast but getting warmer, Ocean is a bit like a pond at the moment, all very quiet, highlights of today include visits by dolphins and a pair of whales.
