Horta - Azores


The five day sail from the Canaries out to the picturesque Azores island group is Meryle's first experience of a multiple day passage on the open sea. Fallado sails to six different islands in the group before returning two months later to the Canary Islands. A special highlight in the Azores was making it up to the top of the volcanic cone of Pico, Portugal's highest peak. A late afternoon ascent lets us enjoy a spectacular sunset, and after snuggling down into a sleeping bag overnight, also a spectacular sunrise across the Atlantic Ocean, before we scramble down again. Following  the example of others, Fallado's personal calling card is added to those painted on Horta's outer harbour wall
