Porto Santo – Madeira

May 2, 2015

After 72 h sailing and some motor/sail, we arrived safe and sound this morning at Porto Santo, the second largest island of the Madeira archipelago. Most of this journey is over ocean depth of more than 4000 meters so we didn’t see much wildlife except in the beginning and at the end of the sail. Plenty of Dolphins, both common and bottlenosed, Pilot Whales and an unidentified LARGE Whale that requires some more research. Porto Santo, this time of year, is rather empty of both sailors and tourists. Tina P is the 4th sail yacht moored in the marina that has a capacity of 140 yachts. Even though it is still low season, we truly enjoyed a swim in the 22 C degree warm water that is crystal clear just outside the marina. On the marina breakwater all sailors transiting Porto Santo leaves behind an artistic painting, we feel the pressure and are carefully planning our contribution.

  1. Kul att ni hittat vår gamla målning. Trodde inte den fanns kvar. Vart är ni på väg?

    • Hej, er målning och andra, ännu äldre mästerverk är fortfarande i gott skick. Vi är lite nervösa för vår egen målning i eftermiddag. Vi är på väg till Kanarieöarna och stannar troligen ett halvår. Därefter siktar vi på Brasilien alt. Karibien. Stannar ni kvar i Karibien / US östkust ännu en säsong?
