Nordhavn Atlantic Rally crew
It seems like yesterday that I returned from Florida to start the great
adventure of living out one of my dreams. I was excited at the chance to
cross the Atlantic Ocean, but my dreams did not even come close to the great
time I had. Everyone was so nice, and so interesting, and so
much fun. The weather was better than I could have hoped for, and the
places we visited were great. The highlight of the trip for me was coming into Horta
harbor in the Azores. I had read about this place for most of my life. To
dock in the harbor with over 400
sailboats, all crossing the Atlantic this year. To look at all the
paintings on the walls of the harbor. Historic names, great boats and some
of just a family living the dream. To eat and drink at Peter's Sport Cafe,
with all the flags and banners from all the great early Atlantic crossings.
I will always grateful to the (NAR participants Hal and Linda Wyman) for
giving me the chance to "live the dream".
