I did read your post and nowhere was there €2000+ written.. if it was an AMEX Card not surprised.. if a Visa Card yes.. I have paid a €2300 bill with my Visa card.

And you could not in Ponta Delgada, they (chandlery, electronics provider, sailmaker, etc.) accept no credit card at all.

Then how did you pay for what you claim you were being threatened with legal action for non payment in Gibraltar.
Very confusing.. problem seems with your bank.
Horta is okay, maybe you should stop there next time.

A new bank transfer, which this time was successful. Actually my bank was responsible of payment failure, but credit card payment would have avoided all difficulties.

Can you give a little more detail on this 'northerly route via Ireland' route?
