Canaryhopping while we wait

08/12/2015 14:03
Now we have been in 7 of the total of 9 islands down here, and we're pleasantly surprised. We were very negative to the Canaries before we came, and thought it would be two depressing months. But we've actually had a lot of fun! Gran Canaria is living up to his reputation as the tourist bomb it...

With stormsails to La Graciosa

Hola! Now we have reached the Canary Islands, and the first stop is La Graciosa, a small island just north of Lanzarote. Had heard great things about this place from one of the locals in Porto Santo, so almost the entire Norwegian fleet decided to head here. But to get port space one must apply...

Porto santo, Madeira

After some discussion, we sailed to Madeira. First stop was Porto Santo which is a small island with 5,000 inhabitants, about 40 nm northeast of the Madeira. We don´t regret, it is incredibly beautiful out here and the water temperatures are impeccable. The crossing started with too much wind...

When it turned out that Halvard and the crew had to head to the Azores instead of Scotland, I went to meet them there, instead of Shetland which was the original plan. I had barely heard of the Azores until now, and very much looked forward to cruise around the islands. Azores, who is Portuguese,...

North Atlantic, NY-Azores

Finn.no is for me, like many others, the ultimate supplier on everything we want and need in life.  The fact that I have an office job where one of two screens constantly stood up with boat-advertisements did that I could all sail boat ads by heart. One December day an...
