Sailing 7,000 miles over 7 months we finally make landfall in Madagascar! The last few days of the sail have been very hectic though and we wake up to high 30 knots of breeze and 4-5 meter seas left over from the gale the night before. The crew is in high spirits because we made good progress overnight and are only 32 miles away the northern cape of Madagascar! We cruise around the cape making 14 knots of boat speed in 40 knots of wind. It’s wicked sailing but soon we are behind the lee and protection of Madagascar and reach Nosy Be where we drop the hook. We’re welcomed to the yacht club with all the food we’ve been craving. Cheap, cold beers and delicious salads and pizza. There’s live music, dancing, and a super cool atmosphere. We begin to fall in love with Madagascar.
Book your hotel through booking.com using the yellow box below and we’ll put some of the money into fueling the boat, and a few beers in to fuel us too!
