Senegal and Gambia?

Wonder if anyone has sailed to these two countries and, if so, would you recommend them? When we go from South Africa we might stop here and Cape Verde before crossing the Atlantic.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Re: Senegal and Gambia?

I have not sailed there, but I taught with Project Overseas in The Gambia in 1982.

I liked the country and the people.

Re: Senegal and Gambia?

I visted Dakar many years ago. It was quite nice and friendly. I believe its quite popular the French cruisers.
