After a 9 day passage from Gosport, Spellbinder arrived in Porto Santo, Madeira on Wed 25th July. See the latest blog for a description of that passage and a short video, including some drone footage. We then sailed to mainland Madeira, spending 10 days there enjoying some good walking and exploring the island. Spellbinder is now in Quinta do Lorde on the east end of the island, awaiting further adventures at the end of the summer. The plan remains to head to the Canaries in October, cruise the islands there for 3 weeks, then head down to Cape Verde to do the same, before crossing the Atlantic at the end of November.
