    Fair anchorage at northeast wind. Lay for anchor at Funchal, but it blew 15ms from one. Almost windy here.

    Anchorage at the foot of cabo girao. Very windy but without danger in light winds. Chests are available to boaters (free). This is blue or white can which indicates the position of the chests. Catch the can with the hook (a big mooring is attached to it) and moor the line. Each mooring is connected to a large block of concrete. A huge banana plantation is accessible from the small dock. Coffee, catering at the bottom of the monte charge.

    Mouillage au pied du cabo girao. Très rouleur mais sans danger par vents faibles. Des coffres sont à disposition des plaisanciers (gratuit). Il s'agit de bidon bleu ou blanc qui indique la position des coffres. Attraper le bidon avec la gaffe (une grosse amarre y est attaché) et passer l'amarre au taquet. Chaque amarre est reliée à un gros bloc de béton. Une énorme bananeraie est accessible depuis le petit quai. Café, restauration en bas du monte charge.
