Yesterday we sailed past Cape Finisterre. It was a great sail around one of Europe's great capes, moderated by the memory of those lost on the FSC yacht Finisterre off the WA coast in 2018.

We departed Ria de Camarinas at 1030 after waiting for a gap in the rain showers. The showers appear to follow the coast south around here.
