January 18, 2020: After having relaxed a couple of days in Cape Verde, we set sail for Martinique, crossing the Atlantic!
2 February, 2020: We arrived at the land on the other side of the puddle, in Martinique
Embarking on the Island of San Vicente on January 18; This island is the second most populous island in Cape Verde. The official language is Portuguese but the spoken language is Cape Verdean Creole and its currency in circulation is the Cape Verdian shield. Before sailing, you can enjoy its people, its music (headquarters of the great Caesarea Evora, La Diva of bare feet), its markets and its cuisine based mainly on seafood, fish and its national dish, the Cachupa.
From San Vicente (Cape Verde) to Martinique:
On January 18 we will be long for the great crossing, CROSS THE CHARCO! We will leave San Vicente towards the Martinique Island in the Caribbean, which we hope to reach on February 2. Martinique is an island that is an integral part of the French Republic and whose name is due to Christopher Columbus. The official language is French, but the population also speaks Martinique Creole and its official currency is the euro.
During the crossing, 2100 nautical miles, we will have time to enjoy life on board, fish, enrich ourselves in nature in its purest form and, above all, enjoy what unites us all in this wonderful adventure, sailing.
Once there we will enjoy a few days sailing through the Caribbean and charging us the deserved reward after such a long journey.
