I wish you a very good vacations and a cool trip, on the end of November, in Açores. But I would not call fun to sail out of Açores in the end of November on a "some years old 36ft cat". Maybe you get lucky, but let me show some videos of Açores on that season:

This one is only some days old:

Well, at least you know that this one is ready to pick you up...if you don't get lucky
