My Dad's club when he was young in 1908, is the Paco D'Arcos club, in the between of Lisbon and Cascais, on the coast.

I had races there this last weekend, for the first time in life.:p :p :p

I used same rampe my father used when he was young, and my father was proud.;) ;)

My fater did not see the race to the end because he went to hospital for the operartion.

I was 26th Overall, I am slowly coming down, but my dad does not know, so I make this here so he can read now in bed and be happy.OK??

Well done Fred!

We're all proud of you!:) And I'm sure this news brings great happiness to your father while he is recovering. That will help him feel better.:)

P.S. I like your new countdown clock. Very handy.

Leap! The net will appear

Fred, you are quite the sailor rock!
I need a timer like it comes in handy.

Keep up the hard work, you'll catch those other guys soon.

Good pictures, Fred, and that ramp looks very nice, because it hides the wind until the last moment!

Was your dad really at the club in 1908? He looks pretty good!
