Last night we continued motoring through a thick gloopy fog which clung to everything and left it sopping. As the wind rose in the morning we raised the gennaker and gybed to take advantage of the best wind angle. Interestingly, we realised that this heading would take us directly to Flores, the nearest of the Azores, by Saturday. So at the moment we are continuing along this route. If we decide to stop at Flores, we will then have two 24 hour sails to get to Horta and then Ponta Delgarda. As this will also give us a bit more of a flavour of the different islands, and we have plenty of time, it is our preferred option at the moment.
Distance to Flores; 280nm
Distance to Ponta Delgarda;473nm
