Was wondering about hte waypoint at Cape verdie, found it:
MINI Depart from the second stage of the Mini-Transat-La Boulangère between Gran Canaria and Le Marin, in Martinique, on Wednesday afternoon with a modified modification, passing through the Cape Vert, due to a tropical storm at the North route.
A few years ago I noticed that getting spare parts in Cape Vert or a good spot to work on your mini is difficult. That was on Mindelo , now there is a little marina:
Source noon site:
Marina Mindelo opened here a few years ago. It provides slightly better shelter than the anchorage and has 24 hour security. Should a W swell set in during your stay here, be prepared with springs and rubber guards for mooring lines.
Pontoons are anchored to the seabed without fingers. Instead there are mooring buoys for tying to. The floating pontoons run roughly from NW to SE, so make sure that your berth is on the SW-side of the pontoons so will be blown off the pontoon. There is always some swell here and movement of the pontoons.
