Sao Jorge pictures, Azores, July 2015

We took a ferry over to Sao Jorge to sightsee with Geoff and Marie.  Every island has unique features and some similar.  We have enjoyed all the ones we visited!

  1. Hello Laura & Steve!
    It’s great to read your blogs, looks like y’all are having a good time. Thanks for the projects update, gives us lots to think about.
    We have been racing Owl on the bay over the last few months, doing ok may I add..especially when we get 15+ knots true. I’m in conversation regarding retirement, so maybe looking at a 2016 departure from Seabrook. When do Geoff and Marie get back home? Looking forward to catching up with them..
    All the best…and fair winds!

  2. Bill and Audrey,

    I hope the retirement plans work out in your favor. If so, cruising is a great way to spend your days. As far as racing goes, I’m sure you are doing very well. A little wind is all you need!
    Thought about you a few times while out here. In Horta we had an older model sister ship to you tied up on the wall behind us. Seen a few more H/R 47’s along the way.
    We also had a crew from the Royal Cork Yacht Club rafted up to us for a few nights. Had a lot of fun with them!
    Let me know when you start thinking about upgrades or equipment replacements. I can at least tell you what has worked for us.

    Fair Winds!
    Steve
