Madeira, Funchal

Page 194. Marina number changed to: +351 912 304 508.
Page 198. Mare chandlers closed.
Very helpful staff but had to circle outside entrance for 15 minutes while they sorted out an unannounced arrival who queue jumped ... ! We called ahead and it did appear the staff had reserved a place for us.
Visitors tend to be berthed/rafted on outer wall; only 3 deep when we went in although we had a place to ourselves.
Page 199. All formalities now done in new offices at the head of the breakwater in the middle of the restaurants. Quick and easy.
Able to get permits for Illhas Desertas and Sevagens from the marina office on the spot as well as the marina office at Quinta do Lorde.
