He may not be used to that type of sailing.. but.. I bet this day was better than visiting the monuments.... etc.

...just a little jealous of the Wombat.... a little...

11 knots indeed. YAY!

When he rang me at 11 knots with the sounds of wind & water in the background I could hear in his voice that de Wombat was L O V I N G every minute of it ! After the call I sent a one word SMS : "Enjoy" - some 5 hrs later his reply : "I did!" - says it all really.
Thank you Gui for putting such a big smile on my furry friend's fuzzy face. He says you know more about sailing in your little finger than he in his whole body .... thank you for sharing some of it with him (your sailing knowledge that is, not your little finger!).
May I also take this opportunity to thank you for your instruction videos....as a novice sailor eager to learn, I'm an avid fan. Keep them coming please!
Obrigado from Ms Wombat!

This is a Ms. Wombat diversion. Send in a lovely lady to a room full of guys... I've seen this one before... She may know the real reefing story. Look at those pics... does that look like reefing weather?

Something Fishy with this one....

Come On!
