This ones are dedicated to Vega II, my old boat and to Faster that thinks that I am an occasional charter sailor

Vega II was a top specifications 2002 Bavaria 36, bought new and sold in 2009 (in Sardinia) with 2400 hours on the engine. No, I don't motor much, the boat should have made about 17000 Nm in 7 years. Not much, but I only had about 45 days a year for sailing.

Powering out of Lagos (Portugal) for a 3000 Nm cruise (taken by a friend):

Obelisk rounding the Horn February 17, 2010


Going ashore to visit the lighthouse. Why not go for a swim in 40 degree water?


Heading back to Puerto Maxwell. Cape Horn in the distance. **Weather window was picked very carefully!**


Traded a $1.50 box of wine with this pleasantly salty Chilean fisherman in Puerto Toro for a bucket of crabs.

Another PNW Sound

Enough Desolation Sound. On to Quatsino Sound on the northwest side of Vancouver Island. It cuts almost all the way through the Island.


Kains Island light at the entrance to Quatsino Sound.


Winter Harbour which used to be a major fishing centre is just north of the entrance.


There is a boardwalk along the beach.


The intrepid crew at the dock at the Outpost in Winter Harbour. (That mature gentleman on the right is me.)


Looking east down Quatsino Sound


Looking west from the vicinity of Quatsino Village


Looking south from the Village toward Neroutsos Inlet.


The fishing is great in the Sound. This was a great way to wait out hurricane force winds off the Brooks Peninsula.

Obelisk... how on earth did you manage to get a picture of your own boat rounding the Horn? That's awesome!

Among the small and very old ports (a Roman one) on Sardinia, we have to talk about Porto Rotondo. Google images for it, it is worth it by its aerial views.

It is very difficult to find a place there in summer (they are also expensive) and mostly they are occupied with big yachts but these are old rich, not "new rich" that dont need to show that they are rich, at least not by their houses (well, the boats are big). I mean they have not changed the low profile house style even if any of those houses worth a fortune.

No, unfortunately that is not our boat in that photo. It was the 80' Schooner Adirondack we were on a sun set sail type of thing. The interior photo on my avatar is our boat though (hans christian 41) Thanks for the complement!
looking forward
