Hi All. Graham and I are about to leave Horta after our three week stay on the island of Faial.
Weather permitting, we will be leaving tomorrow morning for the island of San Miguel, which is approximately 150 miles East of where we are the moment. All being well, we should arrive there by Wednesday evening. We will then be joined by our new third crew member, Alan, on Thursday, with a view to heading off to NW Spain by the weekend. The crossing to Baiona (near Vigo) is just under 1,000 miles. We're hoping it will take us no more than 10 days or so to get there.
Thankfully, the engine appears to have been fixed (fingers crossed !) and a few other minor jobs have been done to make us fully seaworthy again. Apart from getting some additional stores for the next leg of the trip, we're 'good to go' !
We aim to resume blogging once we leave Ponta Delgada on San Miguel, so do log on and track our progress from time to time...
