The wind finally abated at dawn this morning and we were left with the remnants on the low pressure which meant rain all day. Everything is a little soggy but we are thankful that the boat withstood the overnight pounding, and nothing broke.
Highlight this afternoon was the sighting of a big orange fender which we managed to retrieve. It came with a short rope covered in clams/ barnacles and we harvested some of these for our pre-dinner “Amuse bouche “ - delicious!
Other benefits of the retrieval are:
- Less plastic in the Ocean
- pre- dinner snacks for next few days
- João has a new fender for his boat when he gets back to Lisbon
Another beautiful sunset and we hope to get to Horta by Sunday night
Best wishes to all
Rui, João and Antonimage1 image2
