Beautiful, man...just beautiful.

The anchor was still there, the dodger only lowered (not removed), cruising and not racing sails, . . . You are fast, and you still have few tricks in your sleeve to go even faster. She is a beauty.

P.S.
I saw no radar on her.

Why didn't the chase boat rescue those poor sailors? They appeared in danger of tipping over, maybe they were taking on water?:D :D

Nice sail!

Man, weren't you scared? I'd be balling my eyes out and screaming for my mama!

Is it not December in Portugal? It's winter, mate. Time for boats to be on the hard and covered with plastic. What are you doing out there messing around on the water trying to go fast?

NIIIICE!
Love it, almost plumb bow and screaming along very comfortably.

Your lot sure talks funny tho!!:D

Wait until the Gulf Stream north atlantic conveyor shuts down... Portugal will be 30˚ colder than it is now.. :)

Tomaz, that is not the dodger, (the dodger is off the boat now) that is a canvas cover for the dodger frame I had done, so it doesn't rattle...but that's coming out too, soon...I don't like it that much..personally I thing it was a bad idea..one more crap to look after..

The radar is not installed until February.

You really know how to break a girls heart! Sailing fast in a sexy boat. How am I going to compete against that to get your attention Alex! :(
