Florianopolis to Rio Grande Day 5

In the early hours the wind continued to back as we motor sailed towards Rio Grande.

At 03:30 we entered Rio Grande breakwater and at 04:15 anchored where designated to the east of the big ship channel. Passage distance 362.1 miles. Bar 1001, light rain with wind WNW 15 knots.

After a comfortable sleep we weighed anchor at 10:45 and proceed inbound. The wind was now WNW F6.

Passing the shipyard at 12:23.

All fast at the Museo Oceanografico dock at 14:10.

Our concern was justified. Southerly winds are forecast for the next week.
