Tribute to Sotavento Traditional Cache

This cache has been archived.

chiptheduck: The cache has gone missing for the 5th time and I have no intention of providing a sixth for the thief.

A great shame as I liked this cache and the windmill made a wonderful location. Never mind!

Geocache Description:

PT

Existem caches de tributo a dois geocachers locais que colocaram caches pelo Oeste algarvio; Espargosas e Team Caracache. Mas nenhum destes é um geocacher Português e já é tempo de um geocacher Português de topo ser devidamente reconhecido.


Portanto esta cache é dedicada á Sotavento que pela última contagem já colocou 16 grandes caches. É hábito nosso colocar caches puzzle, mas a Sotavento é bastante inteligente e normalmente resolve-as em minutos.

Então decidimos que esta deveria ser uma cache tradicional, mas com uma pequena volta.

NOTA: VOCÊ NÃO PRECISA IR DENTRO DA CERCA. O CACHE NÃO ESTÁ NO MOINHO.


EN

There are tribute caches for two local geocachers who have placed caches in the Western Algarve; Espargosas and Team Caracache. But neither of these is a Portuguese cacher and it is time that a top Portuguese cacher was properly recognised.

So this cache is dedicated to Sotavento (East Wind in English) who has placed 16 great caches at the latest count. It is our usual practice to place puzzle caches, but Sotavento is far too clever and normally solves them within minutes.

So we decided that this should be a traditional cache with a slight twist!

NOTE: YOU DO NOT NEED TO GO INSIDE THE FENCE. THE CACHE IS NOT ON THE WINDMILL.



It's really good that Sotavento was the First to Find! My thanks to other local cachers who may have been tempted.

Many thanks to the geocaching.com reviewer, MightyREV, for supplying the Portuguese translation above in response to a note on this page explaining that our command of the language is not yet good enough. Also to Lamserra who kindly provided an alternative translation. Your efforts are much appreciated, but we are taking lessons and one day will publish our own Portuguese language cache - then the Portuguese cachers can have a laugh .
