Maid made it to Madeira!

Now berthed in Funchal.

Coming soon – a tale of 3 days and nights of mostly beautiful sailing, 1 1/2 harder work but quick, and 1 1/2 of annoyance within 20 miles of here.

Featuring the turtle and the boat, burial at sea, a sort of engine failure, leaning over the stern hitting stuff with a hammer and sometimes wanting to hit everything else with it too.

I don’t know how long I’ll stay here yet, hopefully can carry on to the Azores soon but some technical problems might make that difficult.

      Thanks 🙂 I hear Mike and Joe had been doing amazingly well getting north – is Phantom Lady back on the Helford yet? Hope to see her there in a couple of months.

        Yes, they just got home this morning – finally! Give us a shout when you get here 🙂

  2. Hi!

    Hope you get sorted out soon and can get going, in the meantime Madeira and funchal is great!

    Tomorrow we head for the portugeese mainland, preferable Cascais where the anchorage is for free! Porto Santo´s nice but EXPENSIVE. The day before yesterday we climbed the “fairytale” vulcano, turned out not to be one 😦

    So from now on we´ll have great use of your book. Thanks!!
