As you can see Funchal is on a hill sloping down to the sea. This is the one beach on the whole island.
What a wonderful place to sail – straight out to the open sea.
Lots of races and ’round the world trips’ stop here – as you can see from the marina wall.
Cruise ships stop here too. This was from ‘Aida Line’ – as The Boy

An interesting name for a boat!
It appears that this boat was built for one of the Vanderbilt’s and later belonged to The Beatles before ending up on the scrapheap. It was then rescued and turned into a restaurant.
Hmm lovely – we’re planning a boat trip later in the week!
And here is my bag man!
