sailingfool will become famous soon enough
Alex,

here's a different point of view.

Why do you keep throwing up this sailing stuff...it is ski season, and any healthy humans should be out sliding on the frozen stuff. Boats belong in the slip, or better yet, somewhere inthe parking lot, were they won't get into trouble. Too bad for you, where you live doesn't get cold enough for snow, maybe you should move! This weekend I will record you a run on a nice black diamond trail...now that's fast...so you can see what you miss by doing the same boring thing, day after day...

But while we're at it, what gives with the loose leech on the jib...PAY ATTENTION...also seemed like a lot of wake turbulence...maybe too much beef in the cockpit.

Your sailing buddy...

Looks like you had a blast. Sailing gets me away from it all too!

I've always considered Alex to a great source of knowledge about sailing, boats, Portugal, and cows.
Now, I've taken the time to carefully consider all of his video's and pictures and come to a rather frightening conclusion.

No where in the body of his work is there a single bikini or sarong clad woman, not one, anywhere?
Does Alex then truly not know understand why men own boats - to creat opportunities for female clothing reduction??? Sure women think different, let them.
I'm not worried about letting out the secret here on sailnet - my avatar scares away most women, and my 'handle' of chuckles makes them think I'm a jester.

Alex, I can understand that some European countries are more liberal than others and specifically more open about gender orientation, it's okay to be gay and as a retiree from the Navy I support ask don't tell. I know you are married with two fine sons..

But which is it? Either you lack an understanding of the true purpose of sailing or you only sail with men.

(show me a vid of sailing when my boat is still laid up for winter will you..ha!)

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.

Meu Deus, my Portuguese is good enough to follow what wasn't blown away by the wind...Obrigado, Jose!

Damn, Alex, that looked sweet. I assume it was about 22 C with enough wind and a flat sea...or flat enough! It's nice you are friends with Jose and take him out for a ride after he has protected your boat from crazy neighbours with power tools.

Even though you've had a couple of hard weeks, you still lead what we call a charmed life.
