Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel

We left Vila do Porto just after seven in the morning.

Leaving Santa Maria

Nice sailing all the way, a beam reach under full sail and we made an average speed of 6,2 knots arriving at Punta Delgada in the afternoon of May 13.

Closing in on Ponta Delgada
Marina Ponta Delgada

Punta Delgada is a big city, compared to Vila do Porto anyway, lots of shops and restaurants and quite busy with a lot of traffic.

There were a lot of available berths in the marina but swell made it uncomfortable.

We rented a car for two days and went for excursions and hikes, one day together with the crew of sy Salt.
