Hey...why don't we do this. Check my idea.

How many of you would like to visit Portugal and sail here? Sail is good all year round, and the wind is almost guaranteed.

I have a friend that has a sailing school specialized in large groups, advanced sailing and intermediate sailing. It is very race oriented, he has 10 boats, all the same, Grand Surprise 10 meter race boats, and he organizes races for corporations etc. The boats are brand new.

We get a big group, and I can ask my sister in law that works for a travel agent for a lump sum fare for 20 or 30 to travel from say NY to Portugal.

I then get my friend to do a special price and we sail everyday for 3 or 4 days and organize races in those boats..

A few links to the school and boats I'm talking about.

Hey, what about the rest of us?? I know we're just a little colony about to become other State of America, but we've got much better sailing over here than you have!.. and we speak English!!

(..I know there's a little spot up north somewhere - stuffed if I can find it in a hurry though.. oh, yeah, that's right - the Great Barrier Reef! )

I'd vote for either Buzzards Bay or Newport... If in Newport, TB can host... and buy the first round.

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.
