Bermuda to Flores (Azores) - Day 4
18 May 2017 | Mid Atlantic
It's time to head back to Europe! We've just enjoyed 3 weeks in St. Georges Harbour, Bermuda, exploring the island in between some very windy spells.
We left Bermuda at mid-day on Monday. Thirty plus boats in ARC Europe were scheduled to leave yesterday so it will be interesting to see how many catch us up.
We've had 3 fast days so far with good wind and fairly kind seas so we are well on track. The wind has dropped today so we are ghosting along at 4 knots using our genneker with a pole to stop it collapsing in the roll caused by the swell. I'm just starting to find my sea legs and beginning to feel human again! Distance to go is 1260 nm. With luck we should arrive in about 9 days.
