We arrived OK safe trip

Guys,

we arrived OK last Thursday. We spent a day in the Algarve (Vilamoura) and returned to Lisbon yesterday (friday) as planned, by road. We made 183 miles, and stopped in Sines for the night, for some delicious sea food and fish.

Tom already went home today, and Mark is somewhere in Lisbon enjoying our city.

I think they liked it, and will let them do the posting as we agreed, so please wait for their posts.

We had 2 days of absolutely no wind, and in the cape, (where sailing is really a chalenge), the wind was only 15kts. Still, they got some sailing done and tried the 10 kts!!...and I believe for both it was the first time they actually sailed faster than the wind.

The day before a friend sailed down and had the worse weather, when we left the wind shifted East, normally brings rain and cold, and low force winds.

Anyway, like I said, let's wait for those 2 to post their opinions and photos.

Here a few photos, they have lots more.

The crazy crew...will accept all again any time...

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.

Keep the spirits high, enjoy yourselves, who cares about the weather! Next time I'm sure you will be surfing the waves.
