Good Bye The Gambia

After a amazing 2 ½ weeks we bid goodbye to The Gambia for a 3,5 day trip northwest to the Cape Verde Islands from where we will depart for our longest sea voyage to date – across the Atlantic Ocean to Suriname. Seb and I had spent some time swabbing out the bilges and rinsing and cleaning the last residue of our watery adventure. After this we felt comfortable with our fresh water, food and diesel levels and after running the last checks around the boat we hauled anchor up at 0730 (sunrise) of November 23, waved goodbye to Lamin Lodge, and headed with the tide current out past Banjul and into the Atlantic towards the island of Sao Vincente, Cape Verde.
