21 days crossing, 500nm to next WP

After a 10 days long passage (3 of which drifting in no wind) from the Canary islands to Cap Vert, we have been at anchor in Mindelo for a while, visiting Sao Vicente and San Antonio, and preparing L’Alliance for her jump across the Atlantic. We sat sail on November 19th, just to anchor in S.Antao for a hull cleaning, and the next day we head to Martinique. The crossing took 21 days, because we had a week of very light breeze, but we really enjoyed the passage, as you can see in the video clip we filmed and edited on board.  Now we are in Martinique for a quick stopover, and next weekend we aim to continue to Curacao, to dry dock L’Alliance for some maintenance, and to spend a few months over there…
