We moored near the ferry terminal in Horta, on the Azorean island of Faial just before lunch on June 19th. Horta is a pretty town with largely neat, colourful and orange-roofed houses along the front and a backdrop of green hills. The plan was to stay for two nights and after lunch, the crew disembarked for […]

A-hoy there from Tenacious! Today, another gloriously sunny day on the Atlantic, marks the half-way point of our voyage!

What an experience. There is no better feeling than sailing a tall ship and socialising with new friends. We left Cardiff last Monday afternoon and spent night one anchored in calm and steady conditions off Barry Island.

As we left the Caribbean waters, the sea grew lumpier, the winds freshened and some of the crew began putting on an extra layer of clothes as the temperature ‘dropped’.

White horses and wind. With the animal nautical names in mind the wind picked up overnight and we are now SNAILing! With our compass set to due BEAST we pulled on the SHEEPS to set the topSNAIL. Thankfully the bioluminescence at night meant we didn’t have to sound the FROG horn. In fact we are […]

We’re currently somewhere to the east of Bermuda. We’ve had a couple of quiet days motoring through a very calm patch but the wind is filling in slowly now, and a little bit earlier than forecast. So although we are still under motor, a few sails are set. Wildlife update: We’ve seen a couple of […]

There were also ferry trips to the Historic Dockyard, which includes the National Museum of Bermuda, across from the island’s capital, Hamilton. Here some […]
