Day 7

All's well aboard Parati... except the windpilot which died yesterday - well slight exaggeration, the thin drive rod got bent due weight of sargasso weed on the pendulum rudder and/ or my efforts trying to remove it.

Arrived! Now safely anchored in Horta Harbour, Faial. See the "Teleport-blog" - sent via sat phone/ Mailasail) - for more info. I had great difficulty posting blog/ position reports via SSB radio/ Sailmail - on this crossing. I discovered that this was because MF/ HF radio wave "propogation" (bouncing off the ionosphere) was terrible during the
day but fantastic at night! Therefore, to successfully port I either had to have less sleep (already limited with only two human crew!) or not be on deck during a significant period of my watches - risky! Good job we had an alternative!

It was pretty much done its job anyway for this trip and with light or no winds ahead the electronic autopilot will be the go to
option. Currently wonderful sailing on smooth seas in sunshine - we'll keep making hay while the sun shines i.e. keep sailing while the wind is still blowing!
