Those uniform grey buildings don't look very Mediterranean. I tried to id the flag but didn't come up with anything likely.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm sorry for having stayed away - I've been on the road and I'm writing this note from the docks at Nanny Cay in the BVI.

The picture comes from way south of the equator looking at a distinctive hilltop above this port city.

We know you are out there, cruising around, drinking beer, watching the girls go by, next stop another island...

THERE ARE THOSE OF US SNOWBOUND WHO LIVE FOR THIS ****! NOW PICK UP THE PACE.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

SORRY - been offline.

I didn't mean to kill this thread, I was sure someone would get it within minutes. One can't get much further south than this port without ending up in some pretty nasty weather and waves called Greybeards.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

So we are in the Southern Ocean. Greybeards are also known as Cape Horn Rollers but that picture doesn't look like South America to me..... South Africa, maybe ?????


Edit: Looks like Faster is thinking along the same lines but...errr...faster than me.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I think that hill/mountain in the background is a little sister to Table Mountain.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

"Graybeards" did it.. as it did for Geoff... otherwise since I didn't recognize the mountain and there were no other significant clues that could have been a while...

Here's a distinctive landmark.. like so many of these places if you've been there it's a snap... but it's safe to say not many cruising sailors typically stop here due to its lack of shelter...
