Wnat To Come Over To Sail For A Week??

I have this idea for a while now.

I have a friend and he owns a sailing school in Portugal where you learn to sail in real race boats, hull painted with sponsors etc..

HIs shool specializes in events where companies send their employees to race for a day or so...they are very popular.

I spoke with him, and would like to organize a Sailnet gathering for those interested. Time to put your action where your mouth is.

The idea is simple, I get him to charge a minimal fee, and we organize a group of 20 (or more if people want), and we spend 5 days opr so sailing here. We cold make day one as a familiarization day, organize a few teams and spend day 3 4 and 5 making real hard core races...I guarantee you would love it. If we do it in April or May, the weather is fantastic and Hotels will be cheap..hell you could even camp in our camping parks...flights in May are still less that $500 return from Newark....

The boats are either JOD's 35 (Jeanneau One design).. we have a lot of them here, they still are fast boats.

And we can also use the Grand Surprise 35.

here a few links to some we have here. They race every weekend and I know almost all of them...good people...serious sailing...fun...
