A Spanish galleon laden with hessian sacks full of spices, dates, figs, raisins and demerara sugar made an emergency stopover in Madeira as in the wardroom some of the officers had started a small fire by not fully extinguishing their cigars. While the repair took place, we were offered a decadent lunch – slow cooked roast Seville orange-glazed duck served with red cabbage and a madeira wine gravy. After some water we washed it all down with a very old and very rare Terrantez vintage Madeira wine. Back on board we exchanged views and while some absolutely loved the hospitality on the island, others were not quite so sure.
