We have a v42 Tayana and have been participating in the ARC Europe rally. Sadly, we have had some serious engine trouble and are currently in Ponto Delgada replacing our engine. We still have the 3rd leg of the trip to go and have sent our crew off on other boats. We hope to set sail from Ponto Delgada to Lagos, Portugal within about 3 weeks and are looking for crew for this passage. Will take about a week - 850 nm.
