FALMOUTH England - 120 nm

WEBCAM, Falmouth is a harbour town on the south coast of cornwall famous for sailing, tourism and commerce. With its proximity to sheltered and unsheltered waters, Falmouth has long been a popular boating and water sports location.

The town was the location for the 1998 Tall Ships' Race in which approximately ninety Tall Ships set sail for Lisbon, Portugal. It also saw total coverage of the total eclipse of the sun at 11:11am on 11 August 1999 where the eclipse lasted just over two minutes — the longest duration in the UK.

CANARY ISLANDS Spain- 810nm the busy sailing season (November to February) is starting in the Canaries. Winter charters in the Canaries will give you a great climate, constant trade winds without too many storms and some beautiful islands to visit. The Atlantic swell can create some problems hence the swell conditions are included in the Canaries weather reports. The swell looks most fearsome when creating up to 8m waves crashing on the islands' rocky coastlines. There are dangerous lee shores on the northwestern coasts of the islands where there are few harbours or sheltered anchorages to take cover. Also in some of the old fishing harbours you need good fenders and fender boards when tying alongside a quay. The swell is so severe in some of these old harbours that even the rugged fishing boats are hauled out of the water. The tidal range between neaps and springs is about 1.1m to 2.2m around the islands, which is less than in some North Sea harbours. Some of the old Canaries harbours have installed floating docks and pontoons, which makes tying up in a swell a lot easier. The new marinas make life even easier for the cruising sailor by providing excellent protection from the swell, floating pontoons and a wide range of services. In addition to the winter charter boats around the Canaries and visiting yachts there are also the transatlantic voyagers who stop off at the islands for provisioning just as Columbus did over 500 years ago. The modern stopover place is at Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) particularly in November at the start of the ARC's annual Atlantic rally when some 250 yachts assemble at the starting line
CAPE VERDE - 800nm
On approaching Sao Vincente and Sao Antao from the NE be aware of the compression zone between the islands and be prepared to reef quickly, typically winds can be accelerated from 10 to 25 knots. The rock/light marks the entrance to Mindelo bay. Anchor in about 5 metres.

This is a well sheltered anchorage with all round protection. Even when the prevailing north easterlies were gusting to 40 knots there was no fetch to speak of.

There is also a small pontoon with room for 6/8 boats berthed stern/bow to. A locking gate provides security. There is water but no electricity on the pontoon. Prices were steep at US $40 per day for a 38' yacht.On approaching Sao Vincente and Sao Antao from the NE be aware of the compression zone between the islands and be prepared to reef quickly, typically winds can be accelerated from 10 to 25 knots. The rock/light marks the entrance to Mindelo bay. Anchor in about 5 metres.You must clear in and out of individual islands within the Cape Verdes chain. This involves a trip to both immigration and the port police in Mindelo, not an arduous process but the police insisted on keeping the original ship's papers for the duration of our stay. One thing the clearing process did provide was the opportunity to observe the good old typewriter at work - I could not recall the last time I'd seen one in action
