Anticipated departure date - 2 June 2015
We have been checking the weather and it seems that Thursday 2 June 2015 will be a good time to leave Cabedelo, Brazil and set sail for French Guyana. There are still a couple of things we have to do, pack things away, stock up on some food stuff and get Revelations ready for sea. If the weather holds, we will do our check out procedures this Wednesday coming and cast off the mooring lines early Thursday morning.
Unfortunately, due to equipment failure, we will not be able to post any updates nor position reports on this blog. We should arrive in French Guyana within 9 to 11 days from date of departure. However, before checking in at the official port in French Guyana and getting internet access again, we plan to visit some remote islands, called Iles Du Salut, for a couple of days - the same islands where the film "Papillon" was shot. The now abandoned prison is still there and it will make for an interesting stop. This means that we will only post messages here again around 15 days after leaving Cabedelo.
