Highlights of this voyage

Setting sail North from the Azores to Scotland

This voyages offers many different possibilities, weather systems, sailing routes and crew included. Although it nearly feels like an ocean crossing, it might be more of a home coming for the Tecla. Setting off from the Azores and heading for one of her favorite ports, the Tecla will cross these 1800+ miles in 19 days. This means possibly some extra time to visit the Outer Hebrides or Ireland. If the weather should be bad, a route through the Irish sea (which can be fairly choppy!) could be considered as well. 


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. You might not have crossed that ocean yet, it is a great atmosphere to start your journey with. 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. The Tecla will leave depending on wind and weather. A stop on a different Island might be the best way to get into the sailing mood! 

Once underway, away from this beautiful island group, there is about 1400 miles of no land ahead. With the prevailing South Westerly winds, the voyage back can be one of a beam reach tack all the way. BUT as it is spring, the weather is all but stable and depressions are still sweeping in from the west. Which makes it all the more of an adventure to find the right wind and make the best possible plan.
