I don't get seasick unless I bash my head on bulkheads or booms. Then, up comes the leftover octopus.

Seriously, Alex, if it had been that, I couldn't have gone below to sleep without further puking. It was far more nauseating below deck than on deck, but I believe I left that quarter-berth completely dry. I wouldn't rule out that I had only had about 2.5 hours of sleep between 1:30 AM spreader light installation and 4:30 AM departure preparation as a factor. You Portuguese don't sleep much, do you?

The only other time I threw up on a boat was when I stood up quickly under a mizzen boom and clubbed the exact same spot on top of my head. Lesson learned? Don't put your barbeque under the mizzen boom!

The large boring swells were merely boring on the stern port quarter, though. After Sagres, there wasn't a lot of sailing left that day. Nice cliffs and caves, though.

I see you are still mad about me installing those lights, huh?? Sorry....it was not my intention...as you know the idea was to leave earlier, but the delay to the lost baggage caused our late arrival in Sines, and I wasn't going to cut on the dinner, so I cut the sleep...besides you went there to sail, not sleep

We do sleep a lot, actually, but inmy case, I can't just "disconnect" as you know....

I went to a cave today with the kids and Giu...we motored inside the one you go in one side and exit the other side...remember??
