Faial is larger and more populous than Flores. And the port and marina at Horta are much larger, it is truly a yachting crossroads of the Atlantic. There were boats from everywhere, bound for the UK, Europe and the Med.
|There are hundreds of painted yacht signs around the marina|
We had a few days before Karl arrived to clean the boat, make the inevitable repairs, and play tourist.
In the mid-1980s there was a major volcanic eruption at one end of the island, so we went to have a look. It was a moonscape.
On the 28th Karl arrived. A couple days later we set out for Terceira.
