Thank you @Precision Sails for kitting Polar Seal with a new, more versatile high cut jib, and the absolute most epic gennaker the world has ever seen ;)

It isn't rare that the weather forces us to go pass by a destination we really wanted to visit, but it doesn't occur as often for us to be forced to another destination by crappy conditions.

This week, we postpone our passage to Madeira and take a detour via Santa Maria, where we discover absolutely stunning landscapes at sunset.

Welcome to the Azore's last island :)
