O/K all you furriners, Fasters photo of Skookumchuck is what ALL the channels around here are like EVERY TIDE CHANGE, that's 4 times a day and the water is REALLY COLD and it RAINS all the time and the tides are really HIGH and did I mention there's FOG and the water is REALLY cold. There are LOTS of rocks and shoals too. The wind hardly ever blows either.

These pictures make it look really nice but all of you wouldn't want to come here and sail, really you wouldn't. Trust me.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken, opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

I think I posted these in our Bahama post, but oh well. Here we are at anchor at Wardrick Wells and me walking on a sand bar south of Georgetown.

I just learned about this type of cloud at my Coast Guard Auxiliary Boating Safety Class...We were taught these are basically a sign that a thunderstorm or cold front is coming with a squall line that can turn a 5 knot wind to 60 knots in no time...

So basically, a huge risk to take if you decide to sail if you see one of these...Or if you see one while sailing, the idea is to sail away from it and run for cover...

That is one scary picture.
You are right it Is even worse than a cigar. And I know that Bad Giant, it is Adamastor. All Portuguese know him very well . It used to live not there but on the Cape of Good Hope that got only that name when they managed to get rid of that bad character . Before it was named Cap of the huge storms (tormentas), the home of Adamastor.

He is on our mythology and he enters in some of our most famous poems.

Take a look and see if I am not right



Regards

Paulo

Berlengas Islands, west coast of Portugal



Berlengas, anchored with Creoula a 4 mast training navy Lugre, an old cod fishing boat (used to fish in Greenland).

creoula - Pesquisa do Google



Baleal, the place where I lived 20 years and where my children were born, on the house with red wooden shutters, overlooking the small fishing boat beach.
