This is a classic ocean passage and we will likely have a variety of winds.

This route was our first ocean crossing way back in 1990 on board our homebuilt 37 footer. This will be a much more comfortable ride aboard Distant Shores IV!

We'll start from charming St. George’s, Bermuda to begin this trans-Atlantic crossing! This will be an open ocean passage the whole way.

We'll sail from Bermuda probably heading NE to go over the top of the Azores high before heading to the island of Faial approximately 1800nm.

Winds are commonly from the southwest this time of year in the North Atlantic. On previous crossings we have had a cold front pass over us, bringing heavy weather. It will be cooler as we’re still in the Atlantic spring.

Dolphins are quite common and we have hundreds aound the boat at times. On every crossing we have seen whales as well.

Arriving at the lovely island of Faial we tie up in the very welcoming harbour of Horta. This is home to the legendary sailor's bar Cafe Sport. If this is your first transatlantic passage you couldn't ask for a better landfall.
