Cool Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Hello everyone. All I know about sailing is that you need water and a boat. But I'm gonna learn. Started out with nothing and I still have most of it left. lol

I hear ya! This is something I have always wanted to do and I am about fed up with the proverbial rat race so I'm putting my dreams in overdrive.

Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

Hello sailors

As I am writing a book about the age of Portuguese discoveries (i.e. the conquest of Ceuta, the discovery of Madeira) I would love to understand the techniques and issues of sailing a little better. I am looking for an expert to consult with on the difficulties of navigation through the strait of Gibraltar, and potentially as well North towards the English coasts, starting from Lagos & Lisbon. Anyone who is interested to helping me understand (as a complete sailing rookie - I did some research and talked to some people, but still have the feeling that I am hardly knowledgeable on these topics) - let me know!

Re: Sailnet Members from around the world check-in please.

You may want to open a thread on this subject .My understanding of getting out of the Med (constant inbound surface current) was by putting down deep sea anchor to catch the outbound deep current (saltier water returning to the Atlantic) Made redundant by more advanced sailing ship technology but useful back in the day when we had to row to Atlantis from Phoenicia .Those later Portuguese had it easy coastal hopping up and down the Atlantic seaboard

No Name Harbor, near Miami. Winter has caught us with strong winds, rain, and chilly (70*) temps......

I'm pretty green still, I've done a great ASA 101 course then lucked out and got picked up as crew on a 30' race boat - I'd have to look up the make again heh. Done a handful of races on Commencement Bay. Anxious to get out during winter but the captain's been as busy as I usually am so it's been a few months :/
