Valiente and TommyT sailing in Portugal!!

Hehehehehehe

As I write this, TommyT and Valiente are on their flights to Lisbon, where we will meet for the ride down the Coast of Portugal.

They don't know what they are getting into

Today was calm seas, winds at 35 kts from the North...(we're going South ).

They have no idea what they are getting into, but they will remember it for sure

Looks like we're all ready to go tomorrow afternoon, I am going to bed now,

Next time I come here, they will be here, so if you want to send them messages please use this thread.....

Talk to you guys either tomorrow or...Sunday...

I told you once I got back there will be very little sailnet for me...miss me??

Of course we miss you. Who is this fella ? Anyone remember him ? Nah, didn't think so.

Have fun chaps. Wish I was closer, I'd be there in a flash.

Giu-

Have fun... take lots of photos and keep us posted. Try not to fall overboard or lose anyone... and don't break your boom or mast. Also, let us know how the changes on the boat worked out.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Have a great sail. Wish I could have made it.

I predict Valiente will believe in God before the voyage is through. In fact you may hear him saying "Oh my God...God help me" or something equally religious in nature like "God save me from this maniac!!" (G)

What is it about Sex and Death that inspires belief in even the most ardent atheist ?
