calm!
Viente arrived at 2000hrs last night (Thursday), completing the passage Lanzarote - Faial in exactly one week. The final 24 hour run was 179nm. So after seven at times lively days, all is suddenly quiet. The marina here has grown some since I was last here 10 years ago; the welcome still very friendly Portugese . Now for a thorough washdown of boat & crew!

The rather hazy photo shows Pico Alto volcano (7700ft), that quite splendid landfall feature 4nm across the Canal do Faial from here.

'Viente' looks forward to introducing her new crew, arriving next week, for a passage to Ireland.

Voyage Summary: Marina Rubicon - Horta distance, rhumb line - 938nm distance, sailed - 1017nm 6 days 22 hours averaging 6.12 knots
