It’s only 30 Nm distance from Porto Santos to the east edge of Madeira.
The sailing was tuff but nice with 4 m waves then the bottom raise from 3000m deep rapidly.
We couldn’t make any pre-reservation of berth in Funchal so we choose to go to the Hotel village in Quinta do Lorde. Quintadolorde.pt
Here came our children Sara and Oscar onboard with there boyfriend Björn and girlfriend Erika.
There’s flight where 24 hours delayed as the plane had to circulated over Madeira airport but not been able to land in the hard wind on one of the worlds shortest landing tracks. The plane with our children divided back to Lisbon and Louise and I found us eating dinner alone. Still happy that no accident occurred.
We hade a very nice but windy long walk the next day on the east peninsula of Madeira. We just walked out from the marina hotel and uphill a km where the track started. The nature was beautiful and dramatic!
