BELGIUM TO CAPE TOWN

Hello,

I am planning a sailing voyage to sail single handed from Belgium to Cape Town.
Planning on leaving beginning of Februari 2016:
- Belgium to Canary Islands
- Canary Islands to Cape Verde
- Cape Verde - Salvador (stop here for provisions)
- Salvador to Rio de Janeiro
- Rio to Cape Town (easting from here)

Any suggestions on waypoints?
Timing oke?
Experiences or suggestions?

Shoot!

Thanks!

I would strongly suggest a different departure date. Crossing the Bay of Biscay in February would probably be a very unpleasant experience.

Re: BELGIUM TO CAPE TOWN

It is very cold in Februari in Belgium. Maybe the waterways are frozen?

I would sail out from Belgium in June. Lay up in the Canaries till Dezember then sail to RSA in Dezember / Januari.

Mind the last part on the S side of the High can be pretty rough even though summer.

Cheers,
b.
