It is high time to move South. Although the temperature is still very pleasant here in the Azores, the low pressure systems have started to follow lower lines of latitude and the first hurricane of the season 2022 has been named yesterday – Danielle. Water temperature is high and recorded at 24ºC, which supports storm and hurricane developments. They start to scratch Azores with their lower quadrants very soon.

We are now under motor-sail to Vila do Porto on Santa Maria to get into pool position for our return passage to Funchal/Madeira at the next suitable weather window.

Time for breakfast!

Fair winds…
