Thank to Helen May for sending me this information.
My hubby, Ron, and his friend, Den, are on a Tall Ship called the Santa Maria Manuela which sailed from Lisbon last week and is due to dock tomorrow (Thursday 10th) in Funchal at 8 a.m. The ship is currently about half a mile from Calheta on the South West coast of Madeira and will be dropping anchor at Camara de Lobos at some point today for them to have a swim. As far as I know, it will be sailing round Madeira all day so there should be a chance to get to see the ship. She really is a beauty.
The Ship should then be in the port of Funchal for a few days, departing 5pm on the 12th October.
Did any of you see the ship off the coast today?
