Goodbye Azores!

Well, a last check of the forecast tonight has confirmed that the weather looks good for a departure tomorrow. We’ll be leaving the dock first thing in the morning.

Light winds are forecast for the day tomorrow, and we may be motoring a lot as we work our way north and east. Sometime before noon on Friday we should start to see the winds shift to the northwest, allowing us to turn off the motor and point east towards Lisbon. From there it should be a good sail with decent winds (but not too much), and little, if any rain.

It’s been a tough couple of days on the home front, and for our family in Ottawa know that our hearts are with you there.

Follow us on our tracker as we make the crossing to see how we go. We will post another blog update when we arrive in Cascais, sometime around July 11th!
