The wind decided we should go to Madeira, and we are now in Funchal, a beautiful harbor in this warm and very pleasant island.

Bon Voyage, Richard! Hope you have a smooth crossing. Seems like some ASA member does an Atlantic crossing this time every year.

Light Winds, Flat Seas, Blue Skies

We departed Vigo, Spain yesterday, and with good winds reached speeds of 7 knots with waves breaking over the boat. Today we have light winds, flat seas, and blue skies. Not moving fast, but at least it's beautiful.

Contemplating Las Islas Atlanticas

We are working on the furler in a beautiful anchorage in Parque Nacional De Las Islas Atlanticas, Rio De Vigo.

Furler problems 100mi offshore
Thu May 29 23:58:16 EDT 2008

Back to Vigo, Spain to evaluate and repair. The forewardmost furler for the Yankee jib has seized up in the upper portions of the mechanism. We were fortunate to be able to get it furled with the help of a cabin top winch. Hopefully the forcing did no extra harm. This is the anchorage for tonight, the islands at the entrance to Rio de Vigo.

Depart Vigo for Azores today
