May 15, 2011 in sailing, watersport

after some nice sailing days and a few motor days we made it from st. maarten to the island faial/azores. we spent two nights there and continued our trip to st. tropez, but the swell direction stopped us after one day of sailing in 22-27 knots.

the captain decided to stop at the island of sao miguel/azores for a couple of days, so the sea state can calm down and the swell direction can change to northerlies and of course the win can drop as well from 35 knots. the plan is to leave in the early tuesday morning hours.
