Giulietta's coming home!!

Tomorrow Tuesday, Wednesday and possibly Thursday, I will be bringing her home...Can't wait to have her back in my waters again...

We're doing the reverse track we made with Val and TommyT, except this time, the forecasts are calling for 30 knots from the North and 2 meter waves...and...we're going North...just to make it simple...

This time, we're thinking about crossing the Cape of St Vincent at night...just because we would like to see the difference...my wife thinks we're nuts...

Any way...talk to you guys later!!

Bye

Alex

Alex, who is the crew?
Are you doing this with the family ? I hope not with Luis.
Beating in 2m is hard and knowing you - you will not go slow.

Take care and bring her home in one piece (boom included).

P.S. Without you around the site was not the same.

As much as you dislike the looks of that dodger Alex, beating into 30 kt winds and 2 meter seas, may prove how worthy it can be. Have a safe trip back north.

Tomaz...no no no...I'm crazy but not stupid...

We (the family) came home yesterday by car, I return tomorrow to sail her home with my good freind Miguel. He's crew. Sailing with me for a long time.

We're in for the ride..
