We arrived in Marina Santa Cruz at about 5:00am this morning, having motored almost all of the previous day. In all, the trip from Madeira was a pleasant contrast from the passage from Cascais. The sun shone, the waves were gentle and we could relax on board. Whilst it's really important to know that the boat, equipment and people can cope in a blow, it's really nice not to have to do it very often! So, it's a slow day today - doing washing and domestic chores to get the boat ready for leaving for 3 weeks. We're returning to the UK - returning in mid-November.
