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.
