Bermuda to Flores (Azores) - Day 13

27 May 2017 | SW of Flores, Azores
Kath
Blue sky again, with happy fluffy little clouds. I can see a terrier chasing rabbits and ducklings along the horizon; Barrie thinks I definitely need to get to land. The swell is very slowly reducing, but the wind is from the north, meaning we are bashing into it for the first time this passage- but it's only 14 knots, and is due to back to the SW around midnight. We had three separate visits from dolphins yesterday. Once we heard the squeaks before we saw them. Some were spotty, so out came the reference book. 'Atlantic spotted dolphin- often in large herds of several hundred. Vigorous swimmer, able to make high leaps. Often plays around yachts'. The faster ARC Europe boats should have caught us up, heading for Horta, and I'm surprised we haven't seen any. We haven't seen a yacht since our first day out of Bermuda. We hope to be dropping the anchor before noon tomorrow.
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.
