Chuckles and Mrs. Val..here is a taste of our trip in 10 days

Chickles and Valientina....

Here is a sniff at your trip (actually our trip) in just 10 days.. Hooray....

we set sail June 10th..unless the weather is really crappy...then we still go....

From Cascais.. SEE MARINA HERE



We will leave from Cascais straight past the Cape of Espichel, only a few meters from it...if the weather allows us...



We will sail only 57 NM on day one...



Spend the night in Sines Marina SEE HERE



where we will take a cab, and drive to town, 1 mile or so, or maybe walk if we ave time, and eat a delicious grilled fish (hope you like fish), where as the tradition that started last year with Tom and Val...you pay the bill....(bring Dollars..muchos dollars..eheheheh I eat a lot..and Fred too, and Leadhead..well he's a machine of making POO)




We then set sail at around 4 or 5 am...depends on how happy I am...

You and Valientina or whoever offers to do it will then (I get the boat out of the harbour, sorry)...sail it alone while I go back to sleep..Ledhead wakes up late too...
and sail the boat to Cape of Saint Vincent...that will be 58 NM...



Then across the cape...gets pretty windy there sometimes... so it's another 8 miles, that can be pretty looooong....to do those few miles.


Then, staright to Vilamoura SEE MARINA HERE where you can see nice stuff, and play James Bond...(bring the wig)...



Where we will arrive, time and God allowing at 8 to 9 pm...after a sail of another 40 NM...



Get the place well memorized...not that you need it, but beats looking at work stuff...

We should talk next week about what and where you guys want to go and what to do..

If you have any questions...keep them to yourself...(joking)

Alex

The only question I have is have you installed the anti-heel device yet
Thanks for the satelite view, not that I hadn't already studied the map to make sure you didn't get lost.

Wow. What an amazing trip. My mouth is watering over the fish delicacies, too. Very Envious!!

Chuckles et al, Be sure to take lots of photos and post a trip report for those of us who can only live vicariously.

Someday I'll round that Cape...

Oh, I think I can say for sure that plenty of pics will be posted of this trip

Fortunately, the women seem to be off limits for photoshopping.

Yep...a policy of mine is women in the family mine or others are taboo.

Only Photoshopped women twice..both asked for it.

However, YOU...my friend....eheheheheheheh

just kidding...in real life I am very different from what you see here..I am quite reserved, shy contained, introspective and humble.
