There is a flaw in the Azores depiction on the MWiF map, and I'm surprised nobody commented on it.
As shown on the picture below, the Azores are not sitting on a Sea Area boundary on the WiF FE maps. They are on the border of the paper map, but they are not on the boundary.
So I believe the Sea Area border between the North Atlantic and the Bay of Biscay should be moved 1 hexrow to the east.
Distances are right on the other hand, that is the islands do not need to be moved.
Don't you mean between Cape St. Vincent and the North Atlantic?
If so, then there is the question about Santa Maria.
The absolute minimal change would be to place Sao Miguel's hex in the North Atlantic (adjacent only to the North Atlantic). The program should draw the boundary lines correctly. However, this solution is likely to confuse players what with the hex sitting smack-dab up against the border of the Cape St. Vincent sea area.
So, placing the hex east of Sao Miguel in the North Atlantic, and also the hex SE, clears up the confusion there. But then Santa Maria is in a similar situation.
Perhaps what is needed is to place the 3 hexes east of Santa Maria (NE, E, and SE) in the North Atlantic and the other 5 hexes west of them in the NA too. The overall shape of the hexes moved from Cape St. Vincent to the North Atlantic is a diamond of 9 hexes with Santa Maria in the center.
Perfection is an elusive goal.
