Sardines

Saturday the 12th we arrived in Porto, limping on one engine again and weather-beaten after 30 hours of stormy weather. Everyone recovered quickly and the good memories remained, the nice mackerels and the bonito we caught, the humpback whale, who kept us company for half an hour, the daily, multiple dolphin visits, the great food and drink we shared! Nearly 900 miles, unforgettable!

Across the pond

Well, it took me a couple of wound-licking days to get myself to update the blog... 20 days, just Hans and I, long watches, storm SW of the Azores with 40kn winds and monster waves, not one fish caught, nearly ran out of diesel, but ate well, sailed well at times, read 4 books each and lived an adventure, unforgettable! Arrived in Ponta Delgada on the island of Sao Miguel on Saturday and we’re stuck on the quarantine pontoon the first and our last night with Hans, had to order takeaways! Friendly people, reasonably priced, good food, missing the Caribbean, but Europe has its plusses! Anyhow busy repairing our trampolines, which were damaged during the storm and also a diesel leak at our stb tank and waiting for my next partners in crime, the team from Basel, tonight. The trip to Porto is not short, but I am looking forward to enjoying it in good company!

Ready to go!

Doesn’t look like it yet this morning, but we are leaving later today. Don’t expect much blogging in the next weeks, wish us fair winds and a safe passage!

Pfizer BionTech no 2

Nearly forgot the most important update from yesterday, our second shot was administered and we are supposedly protected now, but -above all- easier to travel!?
