Praia da Vitoria, Azores

Praia Marina is very busy and fairly full at the end of August and in September. No lifting out happens until the beginning of September and if you want to be lifted out you should not expect to get a marina berth. Paulo who runs the marina will squeeze you in if he can - he is very helpful but you may have to anchor off the marina until you can be lifted - this may not be until much later in September. The anchorage is reasonably sheltered but you may have to move if a severe easterly swell sets in. You obviously need to be on board whilst at anchor.
