    Sampling Madeira is an old naval custom, but not much else nautical that I could find.
    What is worth noting is how poor the anchorage is in Funchal roads – one of those places where as Captain you find it very hard to sleep, even with plenty of chain cable out and an auxiliary engine. By contrast nearby Porto Santo has a good anchorage.
