A friendly testimony from England

Dear José,


A friend has just returned from Horta and gave me a copy of your “newspaper” which brought back very vivid memories of the month I stayed there in 1977.


In April 1977 I arrived in Horta by air from England to refit the 32ft Westerly “Sunset” with her owner Albert Troll before sailing her to Gibraltar. It was my first visit to the Azores and had taken three days to get there from Terceira due to fog, but it did not take long for me to find Peter. During our stay I don’t think there was a day when we didn’t go to Café Sport where your father was always available to help with translation, introductions and of course refreshment, I may even have met you. My memories of most of my stay are very vivid, from painting the wall to eating in a huge dining room at long tables with whoever happened to come in, I think it was near the market, but our late night walks around the harbor back to the boat from Peter’s are a little hazy!


We left on May 5th and took 12 days to reach Gibraltar. I subsequently sailed on many different boats around the world, both cruising and racing, none of which were as cantankerous as that old bilge-keeler.


I am delighted to know that you are carrying on your family’s tradition with such success and wish you good fortune and a fair wind.


Thanks for the memories 

Nick Newbery
