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?

Nice sail!

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?

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.

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.
