Strong winds sailing.

Yesterday, me and my friend António, took the boat for a "ride" in high winds an seas. We were out initially in 22 to 25kts but as we went further away from the coast we got peaks of 35 knot gusts.

More and more I am happy with my boat, and it seems I have so far done the right choices....

Here a few shots we took, we had pretty big seas coming over the dodger, over the decks and into the cockpit coamings.

I made a few videos but unfortunately the sound is horrible, and youtube takes forever to upload. If I have time tomorrow I will post the videos.

Anyway..for my land locked friends...I was thinking about you guys....for a minute or two...











Check this rooster tail bellow we were making on a run...I have it filmed but will upload later



This is my friend António, he owns one of the best Yards in Cascais, called Tuttamania. He´s the one that looks after my boat and takes care of her. He also services and maintains her.





António is a very experienced sailor with over 25 years sailing under that ugly face...

Some of the waves and swell as we approached the marina..













By the way, this is the US boat I told you guys before its a 1965 or something and he crossed from the US straight in to Cascais..anyone know this boat?



This is Giulietta coming in the "drive way"...





Please visit António's Yard Web site TUTTAMANIA some of you have met him (Val and Tom) and many have seen his company's logo on my boat when in the dry.

If you guys ever cross and need a fix..António's your man, OK?? Shameless plug

Nice boat you have, thanks for the pix. That's a nasty-looking lee shore along that breakwater if anything goes wrong. And nice shot of that classic Carl Alberg-designed Triton in the yard. Those old boats sure do get around!

Hi Giulietta,

Nice sailing!

It's a little tricky, but I think the American boat "Fox" that you asked about is a 28' Pearson Triton. They were produced from the late 1950's until the mid-late 1960's. I could be wrong, but the mast seems to be a give-away...

Edit: Oops, I see nolatom i.d.-ed the boat while I was typing..

Tritons and other Alberg designs have gone many places in their lifetimes... including Portugal, by the photos Giu posted.

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.

Giu,

If you ever wonder why I hate you so much it's because I look outside and see about 5' of snow, and then I go online and there you are, sailing around, and dammit you're just being cruel!
