Valiente It's not the speed through the water, it's the "hang time" in the air.

I hope it blows like stink for you guys. I want to hear what that boat can do on a run.

UPDATE ON YOUR TRIP
...

SEEMS LIKE YOU GUYS BE PLAYING WITH THE SPI NEXT WEEK....


looks like if we had gone today, it would have been perfect...

North winds all the way down from 14 to 17 knots, AND north swell!!!

We could easily have beaten records today...

Cascais was all day North winds (Nortada) and all day North swell..so 17 knots wind, plus 3 to 5 knots North current and swell..we'd do easily 16 or more SOG..bummer..

However so far Tuesday doesn't look that bad...if we veer Southwest for a while we may get good stuff...we'll have less swell but still North winds woooooeeeee!!!



As we approach Sines after (if the wind goes like that we'll do the 55 NM in less than 4 hours)..

Sines seems to be same stuff North winds and North swell but since we'll be arriving early afternoon, the wind will die a little..



Then next day, wednesday..crap all morning no wind till 12 to 1 pm as ususal..get the motor on and I will sleep and play with fred...install stuff on the boat...


However, as we approach Sagres at the end of the afternoon, things will get pretty fast.

Passing Sagres and the cape we would have 7 to 8 foot waves, from the North..I don't like those there..and 14 knot winds from the North...good for sailing fast..and some tumble dry


Then...all fun ends at 5 pm....

Wind dies...we're far from Vilamoura..more engine..and more sleep..




If these forecasts last and prove true..T34C, BF and Sailortjk will miss..

A HELL OF A SAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOOOOOOOHEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Valiente Alex, I'm a little concerned this will be cutting it close for my wife...she leaves 0705 on the 13th from Lisbon.

I'll call you on the weekend to discuss...are you in the States or Portugal?

Yep...a policy of mine is women in the family mine or others are taboo.

Only Photoshopped women twice..both asked for it.

However, YOU...my friend....eheheheheheheh

just kidding...in real life I am very different from what you see here..I am quite reserved, shy contained, introspective and humble.

JohnRPollard Wow. What an amazing trip. My mouth is watering over the fish delicacies, too. Very Envious!!

Chuckles et al, Be sure to take lots of photos and post a trip report for those of us who can only live vicariously.

Someday I'll round that Cape...
