Highlights of this voyage

Set sail from the South Atlantic to the North Atlantic

Traveling from Cape Town to the Azores is a true Ocean adventure. A voyage of 47 days with nearly 6000 miles, crossing the equator, possibly visiting St Helena and Ascension Island before finishing the voyage on an island group in the middle of an ocean, the Azores. 

Cape Town

Cape Town is known for many things, amongst them the Table Mountain. In 2013 the Tecla crew made the journey up on the mountain and reckoned it was certainly worth it! From the harbor, Waterfront, you can see Table mountain as a back drop of the Tecla while she is moored there. The Waterfront is a beautiful place to be. With many opportunities for shopping, having a drink on a nice terrace and getting into some markets with the finest foods. 

With many miles ahead of you, sail will be set and the traditional S turn will be used to sail with the wind from the South Atlantic into the North Atlantic. Crossing the equator is a true experience. The changing weather, with changing clouds and winds until there is mostly sunshine and hardly a breeze when you meet Neptune!

With so many days at sea watches will become part of your day to day rhythm and sail changes will be your exercise of the day.

And when you get to the Azores, make sure to leave a worthy drawing on the wall!

Horta, Faial

On the Azores the Tecla will be moored in Horta on the island Faial. Horta is THE place to be for sailors who have crossed an ocean. And you will be one of the few there who have actually crossed two! Most of the sailors there are heading back from the Caribbean and most of them meet in the bar called Peter Sport, just opposite the harbor.
