de Noronha - South Atlantic Ocean
are really in the mood for a party when we drop anchor in this magical spot.
Just 24 hours before our landfall we have achieved something pretty noteworthy. Fallado
has crossed her outbound track, thus completing a circumnavigation lasting 5
years, 294 days, 17 hours and twenty minutes...When we
had first sailed over that spot in the featureless ocean, almost six
years earlier, we could not have imagined how significant those co ordinates
would become..4 degrees 12 minutes south, 31 degrees seven minutes west... And
now we were at anchor off an island of gently swaying palms, with a population
of carefree Brazilians. We party hard, swim with the pod of resident dolphins,
and sail on to another pristine spot, Atoll das Rocas, before checking into
mainland Brazil, this time the northeastern city of Fortaleza.
