My After Colorado Cruise

I got the numbers off my GPS, here's where we went in this litle cruising escapade.

We made around 210 miles in those days. Saturday we returned to Lisbon to see Fred's race.

Want to see the place we were, go to Google Eart and zoom in...I don't have time for this now...I made a few shots off google.

We made 39 miles day one in 4.5 hours, downwind some, the wind cahnged, then downwind again, finally a reach and we arrived in Sesimbra. wind was North in the early afternoon, 25 to 20, then steady 18 all day long from the north. Average speed was 9 kts. Auto pilot was acting funny, but I kicked his balls.

Sesimbra has some of the best fish in the World!! hunm hum.



Here is a zoom on the marina...if you move cursor to East you can see the town, nice fish and wine. Spent 2 days here, in and out...weather was warm mos time.



Then we left because Fred had a regatta on Saturday the weather was not so nice but....

We sailed back and took us almost 7 hours to get there. We made 45 miles this day.



We stayed moored in this bay here, nice food also, but need the dinghy, we forgot it...but the owner picked us up.



Then we left Sunday, and made 46 miles

Straight downwind we had peaks of 14 to 15 knots, around 5 1/2 hours (forgot to log). Check the restaurant on the beach here.



Then Monday, today we sailed home, left early and sailed for 7 hours to make the 47 miles back, a few tacks, only marked large ones


And now...

We are home, and I have reports to do....See you later

Go check were we were, specially on Sunday, nice beach and a Restaurant you need to go by dinghy

Looks like you had a nice mini cruise. Glad you made it home safely, and had a good sail.

Hey Bluebottle,
Nice little spin. All those doglegs ? In memory of booms past ?

Have to say that the beach with the restaurant, Arrabida ?? looks particularly nice.

The Wombat's dreams of cruising Iberia are getting more and more vivid.

By the way BB,

Lisbon looks like a nice place. Very pretty looking city. Must visit I would say.

How did Fred go in his race ?

How did you manage to forget the dinghy ?

Very nice trip Alex. Someday maybe I'll be ready for some real saltwater sailing. LOL, you made more miles in one day than I did in a week, I KNOW you were doing way more than my 6kt max.
How did Fred do in his race?
