Welcome!

We are heading south from Sweden in June. Caribbean and back. I think we'll make some kind of left turn around your place

Hi Guys... before you get "Lost in the Med"... visit Madiera and the Azores... only 5 or 6 days from Portimao you can anchor and the Marine life is amazing.... also the Marina's are not that expensive..
Porto Santo... Anchor
Madiera... Anchor
Flores ... Anchor
Faial.... Anchor possible June July when marina's full of trans-atlantic's
Teircera... 2 Anchorages
I could go on....
Its worth the detour before you enter a 'dead sea'....

Culture vultures are gonna pounce on that comment...lol

Hi Enigma,
If you are leaviing shortly you'll have a wet and windy ride. Good luck.
Guess you know you'll need to get down to the Canaries before you'll get guaranteed sun but be sure to keep us posted.
JOHN
