It is amazing how often other sailboats are crossing our line here in the middle of the ocean although it is rush hour for the leg from Canary Islands to Cabo Verde.

Two other yachts approached us from behind and – no surprise – overtook us after some hours. In the picture you can see SY Sleepy from Norway. The CPA was by far to close, so I called them on VHF to ensure that they are not doing what their boat name indicates. This time, I had the right of way. After talking to them we cleared the procedure and with waving hands, they crossed our bow and sailed along.

Hopefully see you in Mindelo shortly!

Fair winds…
