Life in Portugal is relatively cheap
and you can rent a decent place for less than $1000/mth..
Travel around the country by rail is also reasonable so if you have a base for your boat
like say Fig da Foz, good marina with decent rates (a 39ft boat
was costing me €1800/yr) 500metres from the station you could either rent a car to tour or (my preference) use the train as I do and save money
.. its great fun and the trains are clean, I use 1st class.
Porto is worth a week or 2 at least, Lisbon the same.. its a great country and the food
and wines are ace.
Sao Miguel to the mainland is just over 800nm so 7 days sailing..
