Leaving Sal Rei, we set off just behind Danae on the way to São Nicolau. Our friends on Extress at this point were still on the last island but were also going to meet us in São Nicolau.
We stopped at 2 anchorages on the island.
The first anchorage was at the foot of 2 hills that seemed to channel the wind down from 2 alternating directions in large gusts.
A review that we had seen on the Navily anchorage app spoke of a small community-run restaurant ashore, so we went to investigate!
Happily, we found it, and found Anna as the sign instructed. They opened the restaurant for us and we had some lively rice, veg, fish and beers.
The menu did include many other dishes, but perhaps they don’t stock for these very often.
Once again the snorkeling in the anchorage was fantastic!
Such clear water, and such great wildlife.
Here, I (Adam) had an opportunity to borrow the windsurfing kit aboard Extress, which I jumped at!
Second windsurf of the week, brilliant!!! And this time with some pictures and videos!!!
Extress also caught 2 large Mahi-mahi on the way to the anchorage which we of course had to help them eat! (but, no pics…)
Tarrafell (South West)
Our second anchorage on the island was Tarrafell, which was near a much larger town in comparison to anchorage 1.
Here we played some games of Kubb with our friends from Extress
