2009 Atlantic Crossing


4616 miles from 8 October 2009 to 2 January 2010

Our Atlantic crossing – the first for Mina2, her skipper and crew – started from Lagos in Portugal. Taking in Madeira and Tenerife we cruised down the west coast of Africa before crossing to the Cape Verde islands which was to be our jumping off point for the 2,000 mile crossing to Salvador in Brazil.

This unexpurgated blog contains more than 40,000 riveting hand-crafted words. No photos – just words. If I ever have time, I will insert some pics but, meanwhile, you can see a selection of pics HERE. The blog is a PDF file which you can save and treasure for the future, to be read at your leisure.
