The Captain was up early, and got his crew to free Catlyn from the mooring at Clube de Bahia at approximately 05h30. It always amazes me how the feeling in the air vibrates whenever we set Catlyn free, and sail away to a new destination. We sailed south with 15 to 20 knot wind SSE, sea 1 to 2 metres SE and had a great sail for the first half of the 30 nm to Morro de Sao Paolo also due to the outgoing tide of 2 to 3 knots from behind. After so long sailing in the protected Bay of the Saints, it took a while for us to get used to the choppy sea again. When the wind changed directly south a bit later we had to tack the rest of the way, and somewhere along the way we hit 4700nm on our log!

We dropped anchor at Gamboa de Morro, well protected from the swells and about 2 nm from Morro de Sao Paulo, and to Marco`s delight he spotted Grainedo, the big Catamaran of his friends. Delighted to see each other and to share our stories, we met at a beach bar for a beer, and the boys got lost in the sand. After three nights rolling around in Clube de Bahia, we slept softly with Catlyn hardly moving.
