Valiente Reminds me of Yves Parlier: CNN.com - Yves Parlier's survival story - March 13, 2002

Guy basically cooked his own mast on a deserted island and rejoined the race. He looks pretty beat up for 45, though.

Then the idiotic Portuguese Royalty would marry their children, Princes and Princesses to other European Royalties, and often, the gift from the Portuguese King to his counterpart in England and France, etc. was often land in Portuguese territories..that's how we lost North Africa (the Gibraltar incident and Ceuta), parts of India, Nigeria, etc.etc....then the Brits just tried to keep what they "earned" from the Portuguese...

The British Navy was allways together with the Portuguese Navy...allways..in fact the British/Portuguese allied treaty is the oldes treaty in the World...

Also...The British never won a War alone....

In fact...the rise and fall of the British Empire was one of the shortest in man kind
