We must leave the island of Santa Luzia and head East to the island of São Nicolau. There we explore the town of Tarafal and meet a jolly Italian who shows us his house. We get blown around with sudden gusts that flip over my dinghy and outboard engine. Must be the island effect. Then we set off in the middle of the night to sail back to Sao Vicente. We get a close call of the jagged shore and make it back just before Carnaval in Mindelo.
