Route from  Canary Islands  to the Cape Verde

1/7
DESCRIPTION:

Crossing from the Canary to cape Verde and cruising around the islands in the tropical weather conditions .

Weather conditions can very good  due to the established trade winds  that tend to blow in a steady direction due to the earth rotation and the worm weather .

Cape Verde is an independent country of 4,033 km2 and 418,224 inhabitants. It consists of an island archipelago of 10 islands. The capital, Praia, is in the island of Santiago.

The islands, which were uninhabited, were colonized by the Portuguese in the 15th century. They used the islands, and especially the port of Mindelo, as trade center for the then flourishing slave trade from W. Africa. Most inhabitants of Cape Verde are mestiços, descendants of the white Portuguese settlers and black African slaves. Mestiços’ European ancestors also include Spanish and Italian seamen who were granted land by Portuguese Empire and followed by Portuguese settlers and exiles and Portuguese Jews who were victims of Inquisition. Today's inhabitants speak in a language with recognizable French and Portuguese words called Crioulo. They are handsome people and although poor they are very dignified. There are a number of Cape Verdean seamen who serve on Greek merchant ships and you often come across people who speak Greek. 

The islands became independent from Portugal in 1975 but still have many economic ties with Portugal. Today they are e republic with an elected president who serves for 5 year terms under a General Assembly of elected representatives.

Mindelo is the major harbor of the island São Vicente of Cape Verde.
