I don't have much time now, because I am really busy with some stuff at home (honey do this) you know...
Here's me...happy as you can see..I really love sailing.
Anyway...here a few OF MANY MANY photos we took (but I will post everything in a week or so, I'm too busy now. Have these for now....
we sailed for 3 days total, unventfull on day one, a broad reach, nothing spectacular, we sailed rather slow at 8 knots to Portim„o, from Vilamoura.
This mis Miguel, my best friend.
We then anchored in the entrance of the city, and had dinner.
There were a few boats there as its still nice and warm for the Northern Europeans so they stay till NOvember..
This is dinner...
We left at night and managed to sail a calm 8 knots across the cape..nothing special.
Then the day broke...I have some really dramatic photos of this...I'll show later
We arrived in Sines, had dinner on the nice restaurant that Tom and MArk missed..
wonderfull fish..but no photos
Then we left for the final leg...50 miles from Cascais to Sines...
we left at 8:30 am, arrived at 15:00 pm in Cascais...one hour after we left we were around 12 miles from the coast, we got hit my 30kt winds and 10 foot waves for most of the journey. Only calmed down around 1 pm...
WHAT A RIDE
...we were doing 10kts SOG against this crap.
Sometimes the bow would dig completely in the wave, but the camera was too slow
LOOK AT THIS!!! COOL!!!sometimes I could see the eyes of the "shark"
After 3 days I needed a shave!!
When we arrived, we were greated by a WONDERFULL VISITOR and its crew...no other than the US vessel AMISTAD, yes, its in my marina this week for a few weeks...I have more on that
Anyway...once I return fully I will post the videos and all that...
I also filmed a series of small videos that (for those that don't know and want to learn) show the various controls of the mast, sail etc. and how to steer a boat if you lose the rudder. But I need time, soon, ok?
