We did it! Friday around 13.00h we arrived in Horta, after 22 days at sea. The last miles we used the engine, since there wasn’t any wind to sail. We cleaned the boat a bit and after that Miguel for 16 hours. Today we’ve done our PCR test. Just like Madeira, the Portuguese has organized this perfectly! Yesterday the came by us to give us a form to fill out and today we got picked up to be brought to the test centre. Hopefully the results will in later today, otherwise tomorrow. Until then, there is plenty to do on Saetta, but we also take time to enjoy amd appreciate what we did: Sailing about 2500 nm!

      Thank you! We want to visit a couple islands, but the weather doesn’t seem too good to sail around. Miguels parents will visit us in Sao Miguel, so we are definitly going there!
