copa,

thanks for the compliment but, no, i am not. Obelisk has a navy blue hull. somehow we missed seeing the one you are speaking of while in Ubatuba--do you happen to recall her name? there are so few out there that it is a real treat to encounter another. thanks

Obelisk, the Skye 51 in Ubatuba is usually on her slip in the yacht club (out of sight), but for the last month or so it has been on a mooring and out in the open. I don't recall the name, but I'll take a decent photo for you next time I'm down at the boat (Thursday?) and get the name. Lovely boat indeed. This one is now for sale it seems:

...::: LAY LINE Yacht Broker s:::...

Go to "semi-novos" and click on "veleiros". It's listed near the top.

Cheers!

thanks copa, i've never seen one with a green hull. we were in-and-out of ubatuba in 2009, guess we just didn't cross paths. the interior is also interesting...that's a lot of white formica!

i would appreciate that picture whenever you get the chance but no hurry, i'm stuck here in the States until Christmas day and then it's back to Puerto montt and the South Pacific!

My like button is worn out .....

I must say that some of you lot are very good photographers. I'm a happy snapper at best, indeed I have tendency to forget to even bring the damn camera.

Paulo ... I understand where you are coming from re Europe and that in no way diminishes my appreciation for raw natural beauty. The only sailing I have done in Europe is some day sailing around Lisbon but I've toured Spain fairly extensively and the idea of port hopping along the Biscay coast from the Basque Country to Galicia then down along the Portuguese coast and on to the border with Spain is for me another dream. OK, so you have to be a lover of the ancient and probably you need to have a yen for Iberian food and wine but for those of you who have never been to Europe these places have to be experienced to be understood.

Donastia , Spain.





and off to the border ...

2009 Island of Elba, Porto Ferraio, a lovely old port.

Lord Nelson said that this was the best natural Port he knew....and he sailed all over the world. The fort you see on the top was the one where Napoleon was captive till his supporters managed to free him.

To you all guys, wonderful photos, incredible places It is a pleasure to see the lovely places you have been cruising...and also a motivation to go there

Andrew, regarding Spain, Portugal and food, an advise to you all, the best at the best prices are on the Atlantic coast of Portugal and Spain. Well, the South of Portugal (Algarve) is also on the Atlantic, but we kind of fell that is already Med

We can still find very good food on Algarve and on the Med coast of Spain...but it is a lot more expensive.

I like particularly the Galiza coast (North of Spain) its Rias and Islands and I love the wine, Albarinho, that is also a Portuguese wine: Minho/Galiza. Besides I, as all Portuguese love Galegos and the feeling is reciprocal. I don't know if you know this but the Portuguese language is almost the same as the one they speak on Galiza. Portuguese language born out of Gallego, the local language (1000 years ago the language was the same).

Portugal, Berlengas Islands, with its old fortress.
