Time Bandit

We’ve loved South Africa but it’s time to move on. In this last third of the year we’re heading for Namibia, St Helena, Brazil, Surinam (wherever that is) and the Caribbean. Come along for the ride. YouTube: SV Time Bandit

Cascais and north

08 April 2013 | Cascais
The northerlies finally died so we motored out of Sines, looking for the 10-15kn south westerly that was forecast but only materialised after 6 hours motoring. Thankfully as our ears were beginning to bleed the wind filled in and we did the final 25 miles in a decent wind arriving in Cascais, west of Lisbon at 18:00.

For the first time in 5 or 6 months we anchored, rather than the £60 per night in Cascais’ posh marina.

We had a decent night, heading for bed before 9 to catch up on some sleep. It gets pretty tough sitting around all day.

There are a few days of south westerlies so we’ll keep pressing on and try and make either Peniche or Nazare tomorrow.
