Bermuda to Flores (Azores) - Day 8

22 May 2017 | Mid Atlantic
Kath
It's still a wild ride here in winds of 25+ knots and seas that are now over 3 meters- but not due to get any bigger, thank goodness. Yarona is coping magnificently and blasting along- these conditions really bring out the best in her. We had another visit from Dolphins yesterday- giving us some moral support. Last night the front came through at midnight on my watch. The squall line looked very pretty on the new radar plotter, and I got Barrie out of bed in good time. The wind shifted from SW to NW so we jibed, and are still just about maintaining our due east course. We will probably turn towards Flores tomorrow morning, once the worst of this is over. At least the sun is shining now, but it's cold- thermals and warm hats are needed at night. The interior of the boat is a shambles- heaps of clothes everywhere, as putting them away is just too much like hard work and it's essential to time the opening of cupboards with the roll so as to not have contents flying everywhere.
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.
