Anne-Margaretha:
Horta (PT) - Horta (PT)

23 June - 01 July 2015

Discover the Azores on board the Anne-Margaretha and enjoy the balmy weather, the flowery beauty of the islands and excellent whale spotting opportunities! The exact route is dependent on wind and weather, but Terceira, Sao Jorge, and Graciosa are almost certain to be on the itinerary. While there’s plenty of opportunity to relax, this is a true Windseeker’s Journey! Help out the crew and work together as a team to hoist the sails, tack, jibe, and keep a lookout for marine traffic and playful dolphins across the bow. Regardless of how you choose to spend your time, you will return sunbaked, windswept, and full new impressions that will translate into many a tall tale. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Horta is situated in the western part of the Archipelago of the Azores on the island of Faial. The marina is a primary stop for yachts crossing the Atlantic. Its walls and walkways are covered in paintings created by the crews of visiting ships. Peter's Cafe Sport, located across from the marina, houses the island's scrimshaw museum. A collection of artefacts carved from whale tooth and jawbone. This café is a point of reference for trans-Atlantic yachtsmen and sailors.
