Bermuda to Flores (Azores) - Day 6

20 May 2017 | Mid Atlantic
Barrie
Commander's Weather have given us an updated route to minimise the worst part of the storm that is developing between Bermuda and the Azores. Unfortunately that has meant heading south east and east for a few days. It adds a few hundred miles onto our route; perhaps an extra day or so to our passage. Even so, we still expect the wind and seas to build during the next 3 days so we have been getting the boat and ourselves prepared. I've just baked some flapjack ...nothing like getting ones priorities right!

The conditions today are fabulous! We have clear skies and and warm sunshine. The wind is around 14 kn from our starboard quarter. Our big blue sail and some mainsail is pushing us along at a steady 6.5 kn.

We keep getting large pods of dolphins playing in our bow wave and there are quite a few sea birds (Shearwaters?) gliding just feet above the waves and swell. The only evidence of human life is the odd big merchant ship ...... and the disturbing number of floating plastic bottles! I could get all philosophical about it all but I will save that for another day.
Vessel Name: Yarona
Vessel Make/Model: Hallberg Rassy, HR43
Hailing Port: Lancaster, UK
Crew: Barrie and Kath Stott
About:
We came late to sailing in 2001, first on flotilla holidays then on various courses and "mile builders". By 2008 we had a plan, blew caution to the wind, downsized our home and sold our business. We bought Yarona and lived on board for six months each year, sailing in Scotland and then the Med. [...]
Extra: Yarona was launched in 2003. She had already done a circumnavigation when we bought her. We believe her to be the perfect yacht for a live-aboard couple. She is safe at sea and comfortable at anchor. She is our first boat, and probably our last!

The Azores was just a delight! We loved our time there.
