When TD visited me in Portugal, and in one of our multiple goings to my favorite bar at the marina for a few beers and expresso, TD met a legendary figure of Cascais..
His name is Ze Gordo, (Ze is small for Jose)...he is a true old salt...and looks like it too...sun burnt face of 45 years at sea as a fisherman...had to burn his boat to ashes, a 40 foot trwaler with a crew of 5, when the European Union anounced his type of fishing (small local for sea bass) was to be extinct in favour of the fishing going to the Spanish...and gave him a monetary compensation..
Anyway..if you want I will tell that story later..I have plenty stories about Ze.
Ze Gordo knows the sea, the wind and the weather here like no one..he is also my boat keeper...this guy is the one I call in the morning to know where I should sail that day...he smells the wind and the weather and says...go there or there...never fails...he knows the little tricks and the places to be in Cascais and all the way to Algarve...he knows the coast like his hand..no BS...
He is also very short sighted and Val and Tommyt (who have met him) know a story or two...he delivers boats non stop all around Portugal France and Spain...
Anyway..sorry TD I forgot to show you this one..
