Sailing Into Fernando de Naronha (Updated)
We sailed into Fernando under 3/4 oz kite, pole to the headstay and flags flying; we arrived in style. The anchor splashed down at 11:45 local time and by late afternoon we had completed our clearance, found an ATM and got a pocket full of Brazilian Reals, and we were having cool beers at a cafe overlooking the harbor.
So the Atlantic has been crossed.
They say there is no Internet here, or not any which you can use, so we might not be able to post photos yet, but they are coming. Stand by.
