well, the I have a little sailors story to tell regarding the brits:

We sailed on northern child from Gibralatar to Gran canaira last year. On a stop in Fuerteventura, Puerto Castilllo (THATS where all the brits are, fat and ugly women, must have been the national shotputt team) and had a few drinks with our skipper.

We ended up in a bar called last chance......(that explains most of the situation that night) and beat the brits 3 times playing dart pissdrunk...So basically we won in 2 of their national sports, drinking and darts...

but to save his reputation, he has about 40 pounds less than I do and I was trained from october fest. It was a great trip and a very very good skipper.

Madman,
Welcome. If nothing else, with that name you'll fit right in. Just don't send Giu any photos no matter what he says. it would be a life altering mistake.

Gruss Gott:

This summer, I'm going to be on a business trip to Geretstreid, by the Starnberg Zee... Is there some place around there that I can rent a sailboat?

Danke!

djodenda - nice tag line. Maybe that phrase can be used against Photoship-wielding invading Portagee as well

I've been immune so far...I've never been dumb enough to post pictures of myself, only the wife and kids...

Hi djodenda ,

yes thers lots ofplaces to rent small boats, bear in mind, that the lake is only about 12 miles long, so a 20 foot boat is sufficient. Geretsried is near the south part of the lake, so I guess in Seeshaupt would be the lace to look. I'll check and let you know.

If you need any other tips about beergardens, mountains etc let me know.

have fun and try to make our trip towards fall, to october fest :-)

Cu
