      Praia, Cape Verde

      Cape Verde is a biodiversity refuge for many marine species. Our ship is at anchor for two days for a well-deserved break before sailing due west across the Atlantic. Here again, it is impossible to set foot on land with the strict sanitary conditions.

      Coming from: Canary Islands, Spain

      Time of arrival: 4:00 PM

      The halfway point

      The crew has happily celebrated half of the crossing since leaving Saint-Malo for the West Indies, i.e. 2,400 nautical miles covered in 19 days, a record for Energy Observer! And a transatlantic crossing which continues more than ever.
