Light winds and several days of calms had considerably slowed down the fleet of 22 boats, some of which had to stop in the Cape Verde Islands to fill up with fuel or to effect repairs.

Six of those boats only left Mindelo in the last few days and still have at least 1200 miles to their destination. The next three boats are expected to arrive Friday morning.

The Atlantic Odyssey is sponsored by Barbados Tourism Marketing and Tenerife Port Authority.
