An afternoon sail
08 May 2009 | Lagos
Went out for a sail in the bay for a couple of hours but not much fun as the wind dropped after a while so the boom was banging and rather than rig a preventer we motored back into the marina. We have met a few folk on our pontoon and some have been here for a long time, one couple for 17 years. Sue, another long-timer said it is known as the "Velcro Port" as folk come and become comfortable here and never go further. The marina offer a good 6 or 9 month contract then folk either go sailing or some prefer to be lifted for the hottest and most expensive 3 months of the year in the Sopromar boatyard Lagos or in Portmao.
Town walls from the boat as we motored up the river.
