The Porto Santo Ferry has just done a complete turnaround and heading back towards Funchal. The ferry was just off of Caniço de Baixo when it totally stopped in the ocean and the boat Bonito was close by and looked as if it wax trying to get close to it. The ferry then turned and is heading back to Funchal.
The sea seems to be pretty strong or maybe a problem on board the ferry. Will up date if I hear anything.
So it looks as though a windsurfer was missing after trying to cat h the ripple from the ferry. The captain decided to turn off the engines while they search for the windsurfer . The Bonita picked up the windsurfer I believe.
