We finally left Palmeira on Sunday with extra crew on board. Tig and Stephen came up from Santa Maria by taxi and joined us for the sail back down the coast. We had fabulous conditions and are now anchored off Santa Maria – a bit of a rolly anchorage but beautiful sandy beach and clear water. We’re about to join up with the Holt family entourage for a picnic on the beach. We think we will be moving on tomorrow but waiting for the weather before we make our decision where we’re going!
