Pipistrelle makes Landfall in the Azores

After a 14-day passage, Pipistrelle, with Bob, Pete Stone and Bob Tuckwood on board, reached Horta on the island of Faial.   A full account of the trip will follow shortly, but this is worth posting!

On the marina wall it’s customary for crews of visiting yachts to mark their arrival by painting a picture.  This is our ‘Picasso’, amongst the hundreds of others painted over the years.

Quite a landmark …. nine years and 50,000 nm

Somewhere on that wall is ‘Batrachian’ (Pipistrelle’s previous name) by her owners at the time, Stephen and Katherine.  There too is ‘Overlord’ – the classic yacht we sail, which has cruised the islands on several occasions.
