HELLO FLORES. 13th June 2016

This morning in misty damp conditions we made landfall in Flores, the most northerly and westward island of Portugal. We left Bermuda on the 1st of June in sunny conditions with favorable, if light, wind. The next several days were light as we made our way eastward and gradually north for 1756nm

The sail boat in the middle of the Atlantic is us!
The bulk of the journey was reasonable weather bar the last couple of days which blew over 30kn. Still manageable but less comfortable. This was not a fast trip. Quite and amount of unfavorable current, light wind and then too much sea.
