The Aegre Voyage: Notes on Chapter 9: Madeira sunshine

Notes on Chapter 9 of The Voyage of The Aegre are now available on The Aegre voyage website.

Chapter 9 is about our seven-week stay in Madeira in mid-1973, during which we waited for the optimal seasonal winds for our trans-Atlantic passage. The Notes include a then-and-now look at Funchal Harbour, more on some of the yachts and people we met there, photos of our haul out to raise the waterline, and a day sail with the Ridgways to swim in water 2.5 miles deep.
