Sailing with a Transat 6.50 winner

Last week I was invited to sail with the portuguese Champion, Francisco Lobato, aboard his Figaro Bénéteau 2.

Francisco Lobato has participated in more than 15 World and European sailing championships, has won the 2008 Les Sables-Azores-Les Sables race and in 2009 he won the 4000 miles transatlantic yacht race, the Transat 6.50 Solo Race.

Not that kind of fun
Like Francisco was saying, for him to sail in Tagus River is like sailing in a small lake
