Talking Hi from Portugal!

Hello all!

I discovered sailing about 3 months ago, and I'm totally hooked

In the past 3 months I've been sailing with my wife and some friends on their boat, a First Class 8 called "Buzaranha". Got started with nice, calm sailing in the late summer, and recently "graduated" to 25Kts gusts of the freezing wind we've been getting here... what a rush!

Now I just want to learn, learn, learn... by doing, of course!

Welcome aboard Pmoreira,

You can learn a lot on Sailnet and have fun also. There is a guy from your country on here that goes by the name Giulietta. What ever you do don't post your photo or he will have fun with it.

What do you mean "freezing wind" in Portugal? Good luck sailing.

Giulietta,

Obrigado pelo convite!
Pelo que já vi por aqui, é um barco lindo. Um dia desses aceito, porque os donos do Buzaranha nem sempre estão por cá...

Welcome to Sailnet. As denby pointed out you don't want to send that photo, even to a fellow countryman.

Welcome Moreira.
Vais aprender muito aqui neste forum. Podes começar pelos vídeos do Giulietta que são muito bons.

Já estive a devorar os videos, que já me deram algumas ideias para experimentar na próxima saida que fizer... e algumas que teriam sido úteis na última saida para amansar o barco um bocadinho...
