We arrived in BERMUDA last night, 10pm local time. 970 NM north of Barbuda. We had a lovely few days in Barbuda after we left Antigua. We anchored off cocoa point on the south of the island, a huge stretch of pinky sand beach backed by palm trees compleatly unpopulated. we cycled 6 Miles up to the town of Codrington on sandy dust tracks. while we were there we had heavy rain and thunder and lightning, very dramatic. It was a beautiful island, wild and windswept.
We left on Monday the 12th May for the north, we were intending to either carry straight on for the Azores if we got good winds for that, or to stop in Bermuda if we got there. We had some fine wind at the start of the passage, and a stonking run yesterday but we had a few days of such light wind and no wind that we had to motor nearly 4 days just to push north. 10 and a half days later, here we are . Will spend a few days here before pushing on for the Azores. What a nice place here, very friendly people, starting with the Bermuda Radio opperator, and the customs man last night. And attractive place.
