I was sailing up from the Canaries in Mai 2011 I fell in love with the Azores.
While I did not manage to visit all of the Canaries in 4 Years, I did all 9 Azorean islands in just one summer. Why ? You don´t have to beat the prevailing wind all the time like in the Canaries. Waiting a view days does the trick and all is in your favour.
I wintered my boat in Horta Marina 2011-12.
I like to discover new crusing grounds on my own, but a few tips are always welcomed. So I wrote down a short description for all the harbors I´ve been in for those who might find it usesful. It is my point of view and will and should not replace any guide or “common sense”.
“Discovering” is part of the game, isn´t it !
